Welcome to Dresden Masterclasses Music!

“I see a signpost standing immovably before my gaze; I must go down a path from which no one has yet returned.” These are the words of the final strophe of “Der Wegweiser” (The Signpost) from Schubert’s “Winterreise” (Winter Journey). Travels, searching, endurance, persistence – these can all be themes faced by musicians in the course of their activities.

Meanwhile, the DMM have developed into an important item on the calendar of Dresden’s summer culture offerings, and the instructors enthusiastically contribute by accompanying the course participants for a portion of their musical journey.

Showing paths, becoming wiser, bringing musical paths to life: I wish all of the participants at DMM 2016 much joy and exciting encounters!

Prof. Dr. Florian Uhlig

Deputy Principal University of Music Dresden
