 Location:England

The Norwegian violinist professor Terje Moe Hansen will present his international violin class at St. Johns Smith Square in London on 9 April. That same night Moe Hansen will also give a first performance of two of his new compositions for violin solo, as well as presenting a new film and books based on his teaching techniques.

Terje Moe Hansen, born in Stavern, Norway in 1953, discovered his talent for violin playing when he was trying the sound quality of one of the violins his father, a violin maker, had made. Immediately he had the ability to play in tune and even make a natural vibrato, and was as a result sent to a local violin teacher. After three months of practicing he was accepted as a full time student at the Academy of Music in Oslo. In 1997, the talented violinist presented his practicing secrets in the book A Modern Approach to Violin Virtuosity.

Besides his positions as a violin professor at the Norwegian State Academy of Music and at the Malmø Academy of Music, he has given numerous master classes throughout Scandinavia and Europe for professional musicians and advanced students.

The concert will see young (aged 11 – 21) European first prize winners, selected by the professor, who have all participated in his international master classes. The youngsters will perform works by Grieg, Sarasate, Ravel, Ernst and Moe Hansen.
