Piano & Strings Master Class with Miriam Fried at Bennett Gordon Hall

The Program for Piano & Strings concentrates on interpretation and small-group collaboration through the practice and performance of classical sonata and chamber repertoire. Up to 35 violinists, violists, cellists, and pianists—and often a pre-existing chamber group or two—gather for five weeks of immersive and intensive rehearsals and coachings with a rotating roster of some of the world’s finest teaching artists.

In addition to several afternoon and evening concerts presented during the summer, the musicians participate in a series of public master classes, where the faculty or a Ravinia guest artist provide in-the-moment insights on the fellows’ performances of excerpts from their repertoire, guiding both the growth of their interpretations and sharing the experience with all in attendance.

This master class is led by Miriam Fried, who has been the RSMI Piano & Strings Program Director since 1994. She has been one of the world’s preeminent violinists since winning the Paganini Competition in 1968 and, three years later, becoming the first woman to win the Queen Elisabeth Competition. Fried has been featured with virtually every major orchestra in the United States and Europe, and she has earned praise throughout her career with Bach’s Solo Sonatas and Partitas, from New York recitals in 1985 to recordings in France (1999) and Jerusalem (2017). Her discography also includes acclaimed performances of Sibelius and Donald Erb concertos, the latter written for her in 1993.
