Ensemble Academy 2024

The Ensemble Academy 2024 will take place in Freiburg from September 8 to 13, 2024. Applications are closed.

The Ensemble Academy is a joint institution of the two internationally renowned and specialized orchestras ensemble recherche and Freiburger Barockorchester.

Both formations are impressive examples of how specialization in one repertoire and a fascination for the new belong together. The search for exciting worlds of sound unites them just as much as the desire for the unknown. The aim of the academy is to combine the two ensembles’ focus on early and modern music and thus provide a forum for exchange. A central component of the Ensemble Academy is the Academy Week on the performance practice of older and newer music, which has been held annually for one week in September since 2004.
