Chamber Music Exchange

The Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg has had an annual chamber music exchange with the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London since 2005. In 2012 it was the wind quintets’ turn following previous exchanges for string and piano students.

In order to increase interaction among the students, we initiated a unique exchange this time whereby the two quintets, besides having their own repertoire, also played with one another in two works for double quintet. We began with three and a half days in Gothenburg immediately followed by a stay of comparable length in London. The visits consisted of lessons, rehearsals and concerts.
