The Edward Aldwell Institute was established in 2007 by Mrs. Jean Ann Aldwell and Mrs. Lea Agmon.
The Institute implements an annual program of master classes, lectures, workshops, and guest- performances. The activities of the Institute are open to the general public, and qualified participants are invited to take part in the master classes and workshops. The activities of the Institute are held at the Eden-Tamir Music Center , Toya Elias Hall, Ein Kerem, Jerusalem.
The founding principle of the Aldwell Institute is to broaden the horizons of young musicians in Israel by exposing them to the artistry, knowledge, skill, and insight of outstanding musical performers, pedagogues and scholars worldwide. Focusing primarily on piano and chamber music with piano, the Aldwell Institute endorses informed musical performance: an approach that complements intuition, expression and temperament, and a general sense of style, with a broad analytical vista that brings to the fore the inner-workings of the musical masterpiece.
