Independent course. 3 credits
This spring the second of four new and separate courses called "The Organ as a Mirror of its Time" will be starting at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg. The courses will be taken together with students from the new master programme in organ and related keyboard instruments and contain the organ landscape of a century per course and term. During this spring, the course "The Organ as a Mirror of its Time" will be covering the 1900s.
These four courses are read fully independently of each other and are aimed at organists with an organists- or bachelors degree in music, wishing to increase your knowledge in the organ and its music. The courses are organized together with the Göteborg Organ Art Center (GOArt) and the Göteborg International Organ Academy and contain lectures, seminars and workshops.
During 2012, the course will focused on the art of the organ during the 20th century. It aims to give you who have an bachelor exam or corresponding exam or skills a deeper understanding of the field from lectures, projects and masterclasses given by a variety of lecturers including international guest artists and researchers. Some of the themes that will be discussed are interpretation and perfomance practice of organ music by Otto Olsson, Peter Eben och Arnold Schönberg, the Organ Reform Movement and improvisation.
This course will be given in English.
