Informação Geral

 

Belgais convida músicos de todo o mundo para para uma semana de trabalho intenso supervisionado por Maria João Pires, Miloš Popović e, em certos casos, outros oradores (professores, académicos ou terapeutas) que elaboraram uma reflexão sobre seu próprio curso.

 

As nossas workshops são uma maneira de realizar um trabalho musical profundo, mas também, graças ao ambiente particular e preservado oferecido por Belgais, convidar a uma meditação sobre a relação que cada indivíduo tem com seus hábitos, cultura, técnica e expectativas.

Tal abordagem, respeitando as necessidades e ritmo de cada indivíduo, é inseparável de uma reflexão, tanto frutífera quanto necessária para o papel do artista de hoje. Deste ponto de vista, as "workshops" de Belgais encorajam as interações entre os participantes, sessões de trabalho colectivo, conversas durante as refeições em conjunto, tentando oferecer uma alternativa às "masterclasses" tradicionais.

As workshops são projetadas acima de tudo como locais de transmissão. Num cenário que incentiva o respeito pelas necessidades e ritmos de todos, músicos experientes que refletiram a sua própria viagem compartilham a sua visão artística com jovens artistas em formação.

O objectivo não é apenas perpetuar técnicas e conhecimento mas também para forjar uma relação pessoal com a música, que é inseparável do papel do artista de hoje. Paradoxalmente, os jovens músicos precisam de encontrar uma maneira de sair do contexto do mundo contemporâneo com todas as suas suposições enquanto permanecem "em sincronia" com ele.

A participação é acessível a pianistas com mais de 18 anos e que cumprem os padrões de aplicativos, e também a ouvintes externos. Por favor, verifique nossa lista de preços para mais detalhes.

Tutores

 

Maria João Pires

Born in 1944 in Lisbon, Maria João Pires gave her first public performance at the age of 4 and began her studies of music and piano with Campos Coelho and Francine Benoît, continuing later in Germany, with Rosl Schmid and Karl Engel. In addition to her concerts, she has made recordings for Erato for fifteen years and Deutsche Grammophon for twenty years. 

Since the 1970s, she has devoted herself to reflecting the influence of art in life, community and education, trying to discover new ways of establishing this way of thinking in society. She has searched for new ways which, respecting the development of individuals and cultures, encourage the sharing of ideas. 

 

In 1999, she created the Belgais Centre for the Study of the Arts in Portugal. Maria João Pires regularly offers interdisciplinary workshops for professional musicians and music lovers. In the Belgais concert hall concerts and recordings regularly take place. In future these will be shared with the international digital community (pay and non-pay).

 

In 2012, in Belgium, she initiated two complementary projects; the Partitura Choirs, a project which creates and develops choirs for children from disadvantaged backgrounds as in Belgium the „Hesperos Choir, and the Partitura Workshops. All of the Partitura projects have the aim to create an altruistic dynamic between artists of different generations by proposing an alternative in a world too often focused on competitiveness. This philosophy is being spread worldwide at Partitura projects and workshops.

Miloš Popović

Born in Belgrade in 1985, Miloš began learning the piano at the age of 10 with Siniša Radojčić and from his first lesson, he knew it was to become his life companion, as well as his means of expression. He went on to study with Biljana Gorunović in Novi Sad and later on, after moving to Belgium, alongside Yevgeny Moguilevsky and Abdel Rahman El Bacha.

Next to his concert activity, Miloš discovered at an early age his passion about transmission and teaching. That lead him to do a master degree in piano pedagogy where he deepened his research about the use of the body as the main instrument of the pianist.

 

Since 2014, he has worked closely with Maria-João Pires in numerous occasions. They shared the stage on concerts across Europe, as well as collaborated in dozen of workshops in which, next to the common pianistic approach, the objective is also about questioning the artist’s place and responsibility in society – be it aesthetic, ethical, social or pedagogical.

 

Miloš also devotes time to developing children's choirs in underprivileged areas with the aim of promoting mutual respect through learning music and developing stability and inner strength, so often buried inside or oppressed by modern society.

 

Miloš has made two recordings for ‘Fuga Libera’; the first devoted to piano works by Robert Schumann, and the second with violinist Lorenzo Gatto – featuring compositions by Enescu, Martinu and Mokranjac.
