Erasmus+ Projects

Project Bach – Masterclass Erasmus+ with Prof. Sabina von Walther (Singing) and Prof. Arnaldo De Felice (Oboe), a cooperation of the Conservatory Monteverdi of Bolzano and the Conservatori Superior de Música “Joaquín Rodrigo” de València

From the 3rd to the 5th of April a program of cantatas by J.S. Bach with obligatory instrument has been carried out, being part of an innovative project within the Erasmus+ programme, focused on the study and the joint interpretation of J.S. Bach’s cantatas by the Departments Lied and Oratorio, wind Instruments and Stringed Instruments of the Conservatory “Claudio Monteverdi” of Bolzano, together with the departments of singing, polyphonic instruments, chamber music and woodwind (oboe) of the Conservatori Superior de Música “Joaquín Rodrigo” de València.

The aim of this project was to fully develop the objectives established by the Erasmus+ programme on curricular development through academic networks and research collaboration, as well as experimenting and developing new learning practices and teaching methods.

The teaching method used, which has proved to be very innovative and successful, was based on the preparation and joint teaching of the whole group of students (singing, oboe, flute and cello) by the participating external teaching staff, Sabina von Walther (Lied and Oratory) and Arnaldo de Felice (Oboe), both from the “Claudio Monteverdi” Conservatory of Bolzano, in addition to the work of the teaching staff of the singing classes, oboe, flute, cello, chamber music and harpsichord from the Superior Conservatory of Music of Valencia. All this coordinated by the Erasmus coordinators of the conservatory and by professors Ofelia Sala (Singing) and Vicente Llimerá (Oboe). The project developed during the month of January of the current year in Bolzano has been presented in Valencia in April 2023.

Bolzano and the Comunitat Valenciana share a common bond with respect to their language and culture. Bolzano is a city with two languages and cultures (Italian and German), while in the Comunitat Valenciana two languages (Valencian and Spanish) and their respective cultural identities coexist.

For all this, this project aimed to establish a link between our institutions to develop programs that promote the interculturality and internationality of our peoples (Bolzano and the Comunitat Valenciana).
