EUROPEAN CHAMBER MUSIC ACADEMY

We can look forward with excitement to the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA), taking place from 19 to 26 May 2019 and continuing its successful partnership with Grafenegg. Widely regarded as one of the world’s central meeting places for chamber musicians, it can be seen as a talent incubator for the top ensembles of tomorrow. In line with the year’s motto «Chamber Music and the Visual: Images and Sounds», the tutors Hatto Beyerle, Johannes Meissl, Avedis Kouyoumdjian, David Dolan, Vida Vujic and ECMA alumni Minna Pennsola and Karla Haltenwanger will give public masterclasses with the participating ensembles. During the one-week working phase there is also a series of Music Labs in which, in line with this year’s theme, aspects of film music and sound design are examined as well as the fascinating interaction of acoustic and optical spaces. Modern educational methods are used to enable the ECMA participants and ensembles from the talentpromotion programme of the Music School Management Lower Austria to learn directly from each other. In «Best of ECMA», the concluding concert presented by Harald Haslmayr, the ensembles of the ECMA perform selected chamber music treasures after working on them in Grafenegg. This is followed by a particularly exciting Sunday matinee of Quator Akilone, justifying their status as one of France’s finest emerging string quartets with masterpieces by Mozart and Brahms.

Over the last 15 years, the European Chamber Music Academy (ECMA) has established itself as Europe’s talent incubator for young professional chambermusic ensembles. Top European educational institutions and leading festivals cooperate in a training and support programme encompassing all of Europe and ranging as far as Shanghai. It is aimed at the best young groups, from string quartets and piano trios to saxophone quartets. Experimental openness, artistic autonomy and the expertise to actively collaborate on shaping the future world of music on the basis of the great European traditions of chamber music are the hallmarks of the ECMA, founded on the initiative of Hatto Beyerle in 2004. In a two-year furthereducation programme with a total of eight one-week sessions per year, and from 2019 with a regular academic variant in the form of the ECMAster, the ensembles are given intensive mentoring from renowned tutors in the cultural context of the different countries. A great deal of space for artistic reflection
is given, with cultural, historical, philosophical and transdisciplinary lectures and workshops. The ECMA also focuses on practice-oriented research and on linking the arts and sciences. Moreover, there is a growing number of regular cooperations with famous
venues such as the Wigmore Hall in London and Konzerthaus Berlin along with world-class festivals such as the Flanders Festival Ghent and Festival Pablo Casals. With Campus Grafenegg, Grafenegg is an ideal partner for the ECMA.

«MUSIC IN MOTION PICTURES — DRAMATIC ASPECTS OF
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PICTURE, FILM MUSIC,
AND SOUND DESIGN»

How is a cinematic narration built? Which of its four constituent
elements — picture, language, film music, and sound design —
take centre stage? Which are faded into the background or blocked
out? How do these elements influence each other? Stylistically
highly diverse examples are used to shed light on the web of
relationships between the different crafts.

«SOUND HERE BECOMES SPACE – ON THE INTERPLAY OF
ACOUSTIC AND VISUAL SPACES»

Where does the concept of «high» or «low» notes come from?
How did we end up with an orchestral layout that hasn’t changed
for 400 years? What are «journeys» in a musical key? Why can’t
we do without the category of «sound color»? And why does a tone
always remain «a stranger in the room»? Drawing on numerous
examples from (music) history, this talk will attempt to shed light
on issues that are so persistent and dominant that we are hardly
aware of them anymore.
