In 2006, the International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) in conjunction with the University for Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt am Main (HfMDK) launched a one-year master course ›Contemporary Music‹ for young musicians of outstanding potential in the fields of instrumental playing (flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, trombone, piano, percussion, violin, viola, violoncello, double bass), composition, conducting and sound directing.
The goal of the Master’s Degree Programme is to teach contemporary performing techniques and the treatment of the notation and interpretation of contemporary music, as well as to develop an understanding for aesthetic concepts immanent to the works, gaining comprehensive knowledge of the musical repertoire of the 20th and 21st century.
The course will run from 1. October 2017 to 30. September 2018. Events (rehearsals and concerts) of the IEMA may also take place during semester holidays. The deadline for applications is February 15th, 2017 (arrival at university!).
The Master's Degree Programme Announcement 2017/18 can be found on the IEMA's homepage: http://www.internationale-em-akademie.de/en/applications
