International Institute of Chamber Music of Madrid
Chamber music, in addition to being an essential genre in the history of music, is a very relevant specialty in the academic training of young musicians as it contributes to their artistic development and maturation.
The International Institute of Chamber Music of Madrid was created in 2005 as an initiative of the Ministry of Culture, the Community of Madrid, the Madrid City Council, Fundación Caja Madrid and the Albéniz Foundation to consolidate a meeting point for high level international chamber music activity in Madrid’s artistic and academic life. With almost 15 years of experience, the Institute has confirmed that there is a demand from young musicians from all over the world to have a centre for high level specialization where they can come together and refine their talents in this repertoire over a period of one or two years.
The Institute is directed at students who have completed or are completing their high-level studies, with the aim of giving them all the necessary knowledge for comprehensive training: performing abilities across all styles, the ability to integrate themselves into groups having highly diverse formats and the development of a leadership role.
The groups forming part of the Department of String Quartets are selected annually through a process of open auditions. The groups forming part of the Department of Wind Ensembles and Department of Piano Ensembles are made up of students from the school.
