July 31st – August 19th 2018

I spent a very special and delightful time in Solsona. At the same time, it was hard and difficult. It has been a while since I returned from Catalonia but my impressions are so bright that I still feel that I am still there. I have many friends from different  parts of the world and I have learned so many things that I need and a great practice which will be very useful in my future personal and professional life.

I’m very grateful to my lecturers, Sergey Ostrovsky, A. Viytovich and  S. Zgraggen

The AIMS Festival is the only pedagogical music festival in the country. It was designed to address a pedagogical need of the project – that of interpretation. The festival is therefore a great opportunity for young people from around the world to offer their talent to the public, and for the public to get know those young musicians who will certainly become great musicians in the coming years.

The AIMS Festival is also an opportunity to hear soloists from all the major European orchestras, and professors from some of the top music colleges worldwide, perform.

The Festival comprises of 35 performances on various stages throughout Solsonès, Lleida, Cardona, Organyà, Moià and other parts of central Catalonia, a further 19 concerts of classical format take place in concert halls, churches and theaters, 4 concerts of AIMS Street, and 12 AIMS Social concerts are performed in hospitals, elderly centers, residences, associations and private homes.

The high standard of the students, the intensity of work done during the Academy and the exceptional quality of teachers result in a unique festival, intimate and of high quality.
