and CHAMBER ORCHESTRAS:
Glatzer's Master Classes have been enthusiastically received
in Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, and in other
parts of the world: China, Malaysia, Thailand, India, South
Africa and Morocco. He often trains chamber orchestras and conducts
them, usually performing concerti with them. He tends to concentrate
in the master classes on basic issues of violin playing: intonation,
vibrato, colour and flexibility in bowing. These points are
of use to beginners and advanced students as well as to professionals.
Please contact Jack Glatzer for more details about his Master
Classes and work with Chamber Orchestras.
THE BACH PROJECT
The Bach Sonatas and Partitas are considered by most violinists
to be the outstanding works for the solo violin. They accompany
a violinist on the life-time journey of this art. Almost always,
this study is based on only one of the three manuscripts we
have of these works, although the other copies have fascinating
differences of articulations and rhythm as well as occasional
significant differences of notes and even passages. It is
most stimulating to study all three manuscripts and to be
influenced by the various alterntives, in practicing, if not
even in performance. The three manuscripts show us how Bach
develops a masterpiece- we are enabled to experience a 'work-in-progress'.
How usefull this is to the performer as well as the student
rather than the simple slavish followig of one text.
On a recent visit to Darwin, Australia where Jack Glatzer
performed the Bethoven Concerto with the Darwin Symphony orchestra
under Martin Jarvis, Glatzer became fascinated through conversations
with Professor Jarvis to re-study the Bach Sonatas and Partitas
(after a life-time of performing them). Professor Jarvis has
stimulated Glatzer to study the Sonatas and Partitas using
all three manuscripts. In addition, Martin Jarvis has developed
a challenging hypothesis that Anna Magdalena Bach was a talented
composer and may have contributed to the Cello Suites as well
as the violin Sonatas and Partitas.

Glatzer will return to Darwin in April '06 to perform all
six Sonatas and Partitas as well as to lecture on the results
of his study of the manuscripts. This programme will be available
on all of Glatzer's tours during the next few years.
