Next Generation 2023

Student Programme at the SWR Donaueschinger Musiktage 18.-22. October 2023

Seminars, dialogues and participations for and with performers, composers and media artists.  

Tutors: Svetlana Maraš, Teresa Carrasco, Luc Döbereiner, Johannes Kreidler, Michael Kunkel, Phileas Baun 

A project by the Basel Academy of Music, Hochschule für Musik Trossingen and SWR Donaueschinger Musiktage 

This year, the Festival Donaueschinger Musiktage is once again offering 102 music students* the chance to attend nearly all concerts of the festival, take part in seminars and workshops and to acquaint themselves with those involved in the festival through dialogues and discussions.  

The Next Generation programme takes up current discourses: what preoccupies the emerging generation of composers and performers? What are their points of orientation? What are their frames of reference? What do they set themselves apart from?  

In discussion groups and seminars, the students will subject their own work and this year’s festival programme to intense examination. During the Johannes Kreidler-LAB "Composing the composing”, the students realize and present own artistic ideas under the direction of the composer Johannes Kreidler. The “Breakout Sessions” give space for free discussions led by the students themselves about events and experiences at the 2023 edition of Donaueschinger Musiktage.  

The complete course programme will be published in September 2023.
