Music of the future – The "Wandering" between Early and Contemporary Music
Since the academic year 2023, recorder player Susanne Fröhlich and recorder player Carsten Eckert have been leading the recorder class at the UdK Berlin. Both are interpreters and researchers, respectively, who enjoy an international reputation as specialists in the historical and contemporary recorder repertoire. The special feature of their programme is that both early and contemporary music are treated with equal weight and thoroughness, depending on the individual orientation, so that the rich spectrum of the recorder is already focused on equally in the training.
In addition to weekly instrumental lessons, the programme also includes practical courses such as chamber music, ornamentation, improvisation, music physiology and stage presence, as well as specialist theoretical lessons and much more. Bachelor’s students in both the artistic and pedagogical degree programmes can choose the repertoire orientation of the main subject lessons per semester according to agreement and need. Master's students majoring in recorder also have the option of concentrating on one or the other area.
