Dresden Masterclasses Music

will take place for the fifth time from 11 until 16 September 2017 at the Carl Maria von Weber College of Music in Dresden. Head of project Prof. Florian Uhlig, PhD (Deputy Principal) and the DMM team are looking forward to welcoming master class instructours like Prof. Christopher Elton (piano), Prof. Thomas Fellow (guitar), Prof. Ralph Manno (Klarinette), Prof. Josef Protschka (voice), Prof. Natalia Prischepenko (violin), Prof. Günter Baby Sommer (free improvisation), Tanja Tetzlaff (violoncello).
The courses are supplemented in the time-honoured manner by various offers, recitals and lectures as part of the DMM Interdisciplinary and DMM Intermedial format such as music physiology (Prof. Hans-Christian Jabusch, MD), physioprophylaxis for musicians (Anja Freytag and Carolina Lares-Jaffé), law for musicians (Martin Majewski), a panel discussion with the actors Gudrun Landgrebe and Sebastian Koch and much more. The participants of DMM will give masterclass concerts as well in the College of Music concert hall.


As Goethe once wrote, “Whoever can only play himself is no actor.” It is not only for actors that artistry depends on the ability to achieve a transformation of characters; we musicians also change in and out of various roles, depending on our involvement with a wider range of composers, styles, forms and genres, and we strive for an honest, truly personal presentation of a given (musical) text. You are cordially invited to this year’s DMM, which is dedicated to intensive work on interpretation against this background. Again for 2017, we have succeeded at attracting first-class instructors from around the world. I hope all of the participants at the DMM will experience exciting encounters, the joy of playing and the courage that artistry demands!
