Distinguished pianist and pedagogue Valeriy Sigalevitch, held a master class for piano in Kragujevac from 12th to 21th May 2017, organized by the Citizens Association “CONVIVIUM MUSICUM” and the Faculty of Philology and Art. This exceptional Russian pianist, who currently lives and works in France, always visits Kragujevac with great pleasure – a city where he lived short-time and perfected his pedagogical competence, working as a piano professor at the music school “Dr Miloje Milojevic”. The Masterclass was intended for the best students of the finishing grades of primary music school, secondary music school and the piano students. The response was great, and the attendants, besides professional training, were able to meet an extraordinary man who has a rich career of a concert pianist but also a large number of recorded works (the central place certainly belongs to the works for the solo piano by Robert Schumann – 14 CDs). A total of sixteen students and pupils from Kragujevac, Belgrade, Nis, Novi Sad and Cacak, were taught in an extraordinary working atmosphere in the Hall of the Second Kragujevac Gymnasium.
