Norddeutsche Horntage 2023

19 - 24 March 2023 | Landesmusikakademie Wolfenbüttel


The Norddeutsche Horntage will take place for the 8th time from 19. to 24. March 2023. This master class offers conservatory students and pupils the possibility to work together with renowned professors and teachers in a relaxed environment, in which they can further develop their skills, and receive advice and motivation for their continued studies, as well as interact with other course participants.

The course does not focus exclusively on private lessons, but rather emphasizes audition training and ensemble playing. In addition to working on and practising high and low audition excerpts, actual audition situations are simulated. Such audition training is a good opportunity to prepare for auditions, and to gain experience and routine through simulated auditions, with the aim of warding of nervousness and anxiety that may build up in an actual audition situation.

During the course, a number of horn makers, as well as mute producers will be exhibiting their instruments and products. This will give the participants the possibility to try out, compare, and exchange ideas on various instruments and mutes.

For the last evening (23rd of March), we have planned a public farewell concert, which will showcase both solo and ensemble pieces.
