Nicola Benedetti and Aidan WoodcockPractise for Maiastra pupilMaiastra Alumni

The Trust was founded by Aidan Woodcock, a former member of the London Symphony Orchestra, and a pupil of Max Rostal.

The main objective of the Trust is to provide courses for advanced students in the performance of chamber music.  The participants will normally be at postgraduate level and  planning to make chamber music their career or a part of their career.

The course name 'Maiastra' takes its name from a bird in Romanian folklore with miraculous powers. The Trust logo is based on some early folk drawings of the mystical legendary bird, said to bring back youth to those who are fortunate to hear its beautiful song.
