Asynchronic Violin Masterclass:
Pinchas Zukerman at Petrozavodsk (PZ@PZ)

This violin masterclass at a distance is an extension of the MusicGrid project. Maestro Pinchas Zukerman offers his services in cooperation with Canadian NRC and CRC. On the Finnish side the International Centre of Chamber Music, Virtuosi is an associate partner in the Canadian MusicGrid Project, which is being run by John Spence and Martin Brooks.
