New this year, in addition to the more than 29 concerts streamed live, medici.tv will offer a livestream of a rehearsal of one of the symphonic concerts, and will webcast selection of master classes with Sir András Schiff, Pinchas Zukerman, Richard Goode, Gábor Takács-Nagy, Thomas Quasthoff, and other brilliant pedagogues...
