Darmstadt Summer Course 2014: Brass Academy

The 47th Darmstadt Summer Course for New Music will offer a special format for brass players wishing to intensify their interest in and expertise with New Music: Since the similarities between the brass instruments clearly outweigh the differences, the new Brass Academy will be established as a forum for all brass players. In master-classes and individual lessons, contemporary extended playing techniques such as lip multi-phonics, singing-and-playing, air sounds, etc. will be taught and applied in the context of solo and chamber music.


The four teachers of the academy, each well established in the new music scene, bring their individual experiences and insights gained through their experiences as soloists, chamber musicians, and ensemble players. This combination of four views on common questions and the discourse that ensues will provide the students with a unique and multifaceted learning experience.
