The University for Music and Performing Arts Frankfurt am Main (HfMDK) and the International Ensemble Modern Academy (IEMA) offer a joint one-year master course in Contemporary Music designed for graduates in 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 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. Students admitted to the course are awarded stipend by the IEMA, the exact amount of which will be announced after audition invitations are sent. The course will run from 1. October 2020 to 30. September 2021. Events (rehearsals and concerts) of the IEMA may also take place during semester holidays. Auditioning for IEMA at the University of Music in Frankfurt can be repeated only once. The deadline for applications is 12. February 2020 (receipt of application by the University by post!).
