◆Comments from participants
“I could learn a lot from the people I met during the Masterclass. Precious relationships have been created: a treasure to be preserved.” Maiko Kimoto
Being able to attend this Masterclass seemed like a miracle to me. Receiving the precious lessons of Master Devia, in that wonderful environment: everything gave me great ideas for my future studies. And with my colleagues I was able to build a very beautiful relationship. I consider it a precious treasure. I would like to deepen the things I have learned one by one and work hard to make them my own. Last but not least, I would like to express my sincere thanks to Satoko Kawabata, for the perfect organization, and to all the people who made this Masterclass possible. Thank you very much!
“I will do my best to become able to live art with all my heart”
Every day, I was looking forward following Professor Boschi’s lessons. Knowing the history of the works, understanding the nuances of each character, the evolution of musical styles in Europe: all this has opened my heart. I am grateful that I have received something really important to refine my expressiveness. Unfortunately, I had to skip some lessons for sickness and they were moments full of regret. A precious lesson came to me also from the pianist Satoko Kawabata who explained to me how, even in precarious physical conditions, the technique is a very useful support. And the teacher Devia showed me how much I still have to work to use the technique of singing correctly. Being able to have an audience that listens to my interpretations with competence and attention, seemed to me like a dream. I will do my best to become able to live art with all my heart. Thank you so much for sharing such important moments.
