Instrumental Excellence and Chamber Music

Excellent appointments form the basis for internationally competitive arts-based research.

Chamber music shall receive special attention in the subscription concerts (Best of, International Week, Europäisches Podium junger SolistInnen) and via doctoral studies (Dr.artium) and a “Vorziehprofessur” (three-year state-financed university professorship) titled “Performance Practice in Contemporary Music” in its own series at MUMUTH in order to establish itself sustainably. The chamber music concerts will also be put onto the agenda for the years 2010 to 2012 together with the institutes in the framework of the target agreements. The international competition “Franz Schubert and Modern Music” shall be integrated better in the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz activities. Projects for arts-based research which, at the interface to scientific research, are dealing with chamber music and, if applicable, which may be financed by the planned financial support for projects in the context of arts-based research, shall receive special emphasis.
