mdw-Magazin | Special: Early Music

A new home for the oldest repertoire: with the establishment of the mdw’s 25th department, instrumentalists and singers now have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of historically informed performance more fully than ever before. The following pages offer a look at the department heads’ and teachers’ visions for the new Department of Early Music. You can also get an overview of early music’s history at the mdw as well as read about just how important research is in understanding this repertoire.

And finally, a photo spread provides an initial look at everyday practice and studies at the department.
