Degree programme in a nutshell
Chamber Music is a new follow-up Master’s study programme, offered by the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music from the academic year 2021/22. The programme is suitable for Bachelor’s-level music graduates who wish to specialise in chamber music. While the students of Chamber Music continue to develop their skills as solo performers, the majority of practical music tuition is focused on playing in a chamber ensemble. The course is concluded by a state examination. Graduates receive the title “MgA.”
Applicants may be admitted as part of a pre-existing chamber ensemble or as individuals, who will be grouped into new ensembles after admission. Those who apply as individuals may take the talent test individually, following the requirements specified for the relevant instrument.
Those who apply as part of a pre-existing ensemble may take the talent test collectively, performing a programme of works for the relevant type of chamber ensemble.
