The International Ensemble Modern Academy e.V. (IEMA) is partnering with the City of Meersburg, Hans Zender’s last place of residence, to establish a new international master class: the Hans Zender Academy.
The course is intended for advanced students or professionals at the outset of their careers in instrumental performance, voice/singing and composition. Guided by experienced instructors who are Ensemble Modern members, the singer Salome Kammer and the composer Nikolaus Brass, a broad range of repertoire will be rehearsed, chief among it one of Hans Zender’s main works, “Cabaret Voltaire” (2001/02), which was inspired by dadaism. Further works by Giacinto Scelsi, Paul Hindemith, Nikolaus Brass, Maurice Ravel and Arnold Schoenberg round out a programme which is also devoted to tracing the sonic dimensions of language.
The working period culminates in concerts and events – the Meersburg Concert Conversations. A further performance is planned on November 22, 2021 at the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts in Munich.
