Kai Stro­bel is one of the most im­pres­sive ma­rimba play­ers of his ge­nera­tion. Like no other, he has per­fec­ted the mo­ve­ment se­quen­ces in play­ing tech­ni­que and crea­tive ex­pres­sion on this in­stru­ment. In his mas­ter­class we ex­plore how Kai achie­ved this sta­tus and what was im­portant for it. Mind set, di­sci­pline, body awa­reness, sound ima­gi­na­tion and about much more Kai will talk.

MASTER CLASSES CAN BE ATTENDED WITH A FESTIVAL PASS PLUS — ADDITIONALLY THERE IS A LIMITED OFFER OF SINGLE TICKETS (ONLINE ONLY)

Kai Stro­bel is a newly ap­poin­ted pro­fes­sor of per­cus­sion at the Aca­demy of Mu­sic in Lu­gano. He was also the 2019 1st prize win­ner of the ARD Mu­sic Com­pe­ti­tion and the 2018 win­ner of the Au­di­ence Award and win­ner of the 1st prize of the TROMP Per­cus­sion Com­pe­ti­tion Eind­ho­ven. He is one of the shoo­ting stars of the youn­ger ge­nera­tion of per­cus­sio­nists.
Kai re­cei­ved his first les­sons from Marta Kli­ma­sara in Stutt­gart and from 2012 stu­died per­cus­sion at the An­ton Bruck­ner Pri­vat­uni­ver­si­tät Linz with Le­on­hard Schmi­din­ger and Bog­dan Ba­canu. As a so­loist, he has per­for­med with the Ba­va­rian Ra­dio Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, the Lü­beck Phil­har­mo­nic Or­ches­tra, the

Würt­tem­berg Phil­har­mo­nic Or­ches­tra Reut­lin­gen, the Asko-Schön­berg Or­ches­tra, the Mu­si­cum Col­le­gium Ba­sel and the Or­ches­tra of the St. Pe­ters­burg State Or­ches­tra, among others.
Since 2021, Kai has been a vi­si­t­ing pro­fes­sor at the Royal Nort­hern Col­lege of Mu­sic in Man­ches­ter.
By ar­ran­ging for his en­sem­bles, Kai not only ex­pands the per­cus­sion li­te­ra­ture, ra­ther he in­cor­po­ra­tes the mu­si­cal-his­to­ri­cal back­ground of com­po­sers and the to­nal lan­guage of ol­der in­stru­ments into his ar­ran­ge­ments, once again de­mons­tra­ting the multi-laye­red pos­si­bi­li­ties of per­cus­sion. His ar­ran­ge­ments of works by Claude De­bussy have al­ready been suc­cess­fully published.
