ULYSSES Ensemble - Masterclass with Heinz Holliger

The ULYSSES Network project was originally inspired by an illustrious generation of 18th Century artists who wandered all across Europe, visiting at each “stop” along the way the greatest masters’ workshops in order to improve and to complete their skills. Following the steps of the Homeric hero, their odyssey was an initiatory journey paving the way for future generations of young European artists. Europe’s singularity is characterized by the rich diversity of artistic situations and sociological contexts.


The ULYSSES Network aims to exploit this singularity to the fullest. In this spirit, it is the goal of the ULYSSES partner institutions and associated partners to propose and construct a variety of opportunities that target particular needs and offer unique work conditions to young artists. Composers, performers, and ensembles will all be able to undertake projects providing them with rich and diverse experiences not offered elsewhere. (For further information, read also this more detailed project presentation.)

This proposal aims to leverage the positive results and accomplishments of the first ULYSSES Network project that has been carried out, with the support of the Culture Programme of the European Union, from May 2012 to April 2016.
