Ensemble participation in “Ensemble Tonkunst” for Instrumental and Vocal Students with new works by composition students.

To understand New Music, improvisation alone is not enough – one must immerse one’s self in the composer’s world. In this workshop the freshly written unfinished works of the composition students are tried out and rehearsed. Composition students must prove that their works stand the test of practical realization, readability and critical analysis of their tonal conception. Performers are confronted with learning new performance techniques. Playing with a conductor and also coordination within small ensembles must first be learned. The workshop is a weekly course where composers and performers meet, interact, exchange ideas and make music together.
