Mo 29 March through Thu April 1, 2010 The year 2010 will see Orpheus Institute´s eighth edition of its "International Orpheus Academy for Music Theory". During four days, highly respected performers, composers, and guest lecturers will meet (pre)professional musicians, music theorists and musicologists from all over the world. The academy´s aim is to allow a select crowd to work on the highest possible level for the sessions to be perceived as rewarding for all attendants and speakers. The Orpheus Academy 2010´s theme will be "... ohne Worte, Vocality and Instrumentality in the era of Schumann and Chopin". In commemoration of the 200th anniversary of Chopin and Schumann´s birth, the theme for the Orpheus Academy 2010 is linked to a generation of composers (Chopin, Schumann, Mendelssohn) who played an important role in the development of music as an autonomous art form. In their artistry and aesthetic endeavours, they explored new and emancipated forms of musical expression against the background of a rich functional and textocentric past. Understanding and expressing the relation between instrumental and vocal musical thinking challenges both scholars and musicians. True to our tradition, a carefully selected guest faculty will take on this challenge and will develop new ideas for a newly inspired artistic practice: Prof. Jean-Pierre BARTOLI Professeur des Universités, UFR de Musique et musicologie de Paris-Sorbonne, France - intitulé du poste: "Musique des XVIIIe et XIXe siècles" 1.
