FURTHER STUDY IN HAVANA

Since the study year 2017/18 Cuban musicians who have already obtained a university degree can apply for the postgraduate study course of the Cuban-European Youth Academy. The content of the course relates to the philosophy of the Balthasar Neumann Ensembles: the historically informed interpretation of the music of different epochs.

The postgraduate course includes individual tuition, chamber music and lectures on the theory of music as well as additional courses such as mental training and stage appearance.
16 students (violin, viola, cello, clarinet) have successfully completed the first study year. Congratulations!

In the study year 2018/2019 the “postgrado” will continue with a focus on the music of the 17th and 18th century.
