Experimental Studio Organ

Studying Church Music and Organ in Weimar means playing an active role in shaping the future. In the experimental studio, the major works of the 20th/21st century are not simply played and discussed: the students’ own ideas are also developed and tried out on, or in, the instrument.

Philosophical and aesthetic discourses open up new perspectives on the organ as an instrument, as well as on organ and church music. International collaborations with renowned composers, performers and improvisers of a wide array of genres, plus organ-builders, are a core component of this teaching programme, which is unique in Germany.
