    Stuttgart Organ Academy 2023

    HMDK Stuttgart | 14.–18. May 2023

    We are delighted to welcome you again to the Stuttgart Organ Academy. It will take place in 2023 from 14 to 18 May, in the middle of our semester and also at semester times of international universities and academies. This makes excursions to Stuttgart and course participation within your semester possible for a great encounter around the organ.

    With the unique collection of instruments at our college, and the renowned members of our  faculty you have everything under one roof! Ton Koopman will delight us every morning at the Plenum, revolving  around Bach and Buxtehude.

    In the afternoon, there will be thematically diverse lectures and courses. The particularity of the academy is the new course concept: you don’t have to sign up for one course. Instead, your group will rotate through all modules. All participants will benefit from all courses, as we offer a concentrated subject matter. Nevertheless, you can pursue your individual interests by preparing specific repertoire for the courses. In the evenings, we invite you to the concert hall.

    The Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts (HMDK) offers a wide range of study opportunities in organ and historical keyboard instruments in addition to its unique organ collection, which will soon be enriched by a new organ in the style of Cavaillé-Coll: Bachelors and Masters in Organ, Harpsichord, Historical Keyboard Instruments, Church Music, School Music, Masters in New Music, Masters “Maestro al Cembalo”, Masters in Improvisation, Konzertexam Organ, Harpsichord and Historical Keyboard.

    We look forward to seeing you!

    Jürgen Essl, Institute Director
