Academy week

Academy Week:
What are our goals?

Coexistence of tradition and modernity

Taking place from September 7 to 12 2020, Academy-Week is the event at the heart of the Ensemble Academy Freiburg. Surpassing the co-existence of different styles and periods, this program aims to give participants a thorough understanding of early and contemporary music. Since mutual artistic inspiration is absolutely vital to this endeavour, we are convinced participants will benefit greatly from sharing their experiences with different performance techniques and broadening their horizon by learning new approaches. What we hope to achieve with Academy-Week is to give participants the opportunity to learn specific skills for use in specialised ensembles and to simply come together in their joy of making music.

ensemble recherche & Freiburger Barockorchester:
Who are we?

Long established, dedicated to the spirit of new beginnings
Together the ensemble recherche and the Freiburger Barockorchester offer the Academy Week in ensemble playing. Both formations are impressive examples of how specialisation in one repertoire and a fascination for innovation go hand in hand. They are united in their search for exciting worlds of sound as well as their desire for the unknown. The Ensemble Academy Freiburg aims to connect the two respective core areas of early and contemporary music and serve as a forum for exchange.

Who are we addressing?

Professional curiosity and inquisitive profession
We are looking for advanced music students as well as professional musicians interested in who are interested in ensemble performance and would like to spend a week of intensive study of music, from baroque to classical and/or contemporary. Academy-Week offers two tracks of study: orchestral performance of baroque to classical music and ensemble performance of contemporary music. All participants are invited to attend both classes offered by the Freiburger Barockorchester as well as ensemble recherche, although you are just as welcome to register for only one of the two courses. In both cases a registration fee of €350 applies.
