Feedback - Internacional Music Encounters

Testimonial for the International Music Encounters at Casa de Mateus 2018


We are a quartet of recorder players from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, University of Sydney – three undergraduates and a masters student. We attended the 2018 course at Casa de Mateus, Portugal. We had a wonderful and very positive experience with this week of music study and music making. Tuition from António Carrilho was insightful and at a very high level, very useful for our individual and group development. The chamber music sessions with a variety of tutors were also a great experiences, as were the several opportunities for performance in front of audience. The days at Mateus were filled with wonderful music making in great company at a beautiful venue. We would give this course our highest recommendation, and we are hoping that we can come back again sometime soon.
