Musikhochschule Münster - UFMG
3 a 11 de outubro de 2019
In October 2019 professors from the Department of Music of the University of Münster will visit the School of Music at UFMG to collaborate in a week of seminars, masterclasses, rehearsals and concerts involving UFMG faculty and students. The project, entitled HORIZONS, is dedicated to works of European classical music as well as music of the present day. The focus is on elements of musical crossover, creative engagement with works of academic new music, the interpretation of all forms of improvised music; as well as performances, sound installations and progressive varieties of pop music.
Over the course of one week the HORIZONS faculty will offer instrumental masterclasses, a contemporary music ensemble (mini-course) organized around the rehearsal and performances of a concert program, band coaching and a recording project, and shared faculty concerts. There will also be opportunities for faculty to share and to present their work, both in formal seminar settings and in informal meetings and jam sessions.
The purpose of this collaboration is to provide a platform for the exchange of information, musical styles and experiences, and to strengthen links between the two institutions in order to promote further exchange. We hope to lay the foundation for longer term collaborations, with the support of the two universities and the German funding institution, DAAD.
