The Ribeira Sacra is distinguished by its natural beauty, its unique personality and by having reached our days unaltered.


For the students, it is a further incentive in their training, as well as an opportunity to get to know and perform more music, to make acquaintance with fellow students and exchange experiences in a privileged environment that will undoubtedly provide references and support in the future.

The selection of the academy students will be determined by their musical ability and performance level. They will receive daily master classes from the resident artists, whom in turn are amongst the finest musicians of their generation. 

As for the student’s schedule, a work plan will be established as follows:  

  • One daily lesson with the guest artists, with a total of five during the week.

  • Possibility to form chamber music groups and to get additional lessons (according to level and availability)

  • Practising time in an atmosphere of inspiration and work.

  • Possibility of listening to all classes, all rehearsals and concerts.

  • Very reduced group of people.

  • Possibility of performing in the final concert.

  • One violoncello student will be selected to perform the Fitzenhagen Violoncello Quartet in the opening concert of the festival, together with the resident artists. 




  • Active students ( August 22rd-29th)  including accommodation and meals: 680€

  • Active students without accommodation: 500€

  • Chamber music groups already formed. 500€ each member, including one daily lesson, accommodation and meals. 

  • Listeners: free access (sponsors and under age).
