International Winter-Academy 2016

International Winter-Academy 2016

Feb. 22nd-27th 2016 // For the 30th anniversary of the ACADEMY FOR EARLY MUSIC BREMEN we are initiating a Winter-Academy. In analogy to the succesful Salzburg Summer-Workshops we are continuing and developing the succesful model on the premises of our permanent berth in the University of the Arts in the historic part of the city of Bremen/Germany.

MoMo - from Monteverdi to Mozart

The conceptual design of the masterclass is oriented towards of the classical Academy idea: one-to-one coaching in the mornings, ensemble-workshops in the afternoons, Lectures about theoretical and practical aspects of historical performance are complementing and completing the practical work. The common thread is the consciousness for the requirements of musical performance in a historical context: starting from the creation of the score, questions about instrumentation, acoustic circumstance, directing, placement of musicians, pitch, intonation, improvisation, playing 'into the organ' and a masterclass at the historical instruments in Bremen's vicinity. Participants receive private lessons from proven specialists as well as multidisciplinary lectures and coaching, they can participate in the discussions and lectures on the specific problems about the music and
it's cultural context, then and now. A simultaneous anniversary and festival week the winter-academy presents also concerts by teachers and aumni with their ensembles. An additional integration is the well established workshop 'Historic Brass'.
