What do we mean by "Musik-Kolleg"?
For 33 years, Dr. Manfred
Schilder, Professor for musical education at the Bundesgymnasium
Gänserndorf, has been instructing parents and pupils within the
framework of his "Musik-Kolleg" how to listen to music to gain a real
understanding. At regular evening meetings various works of famous composers
are presented audio- visually. By means of graphically annotated scores
the structure of the opus is explained while simultanesouly the corresponding
passages are played. Thus even a beginner soon grasps what is meant
by "listening to music" according to the principle "seeing - understanding
- hearing - experiencing".
What do we mean by "Musik-Kolleg Online"?
The project "Musik-Kolleg
Online" tries to convey the successful concept of the "Musik-Kolleg"
to a broader public, with the help of the new media. Requirements are
a PC or Macintosh with soundcard and high-grade loudspeakers.
Per mouse-click the biography of the composer,
texts and graphics for the work, music material and video-clips to follow
the notation can be recalled.
