Objectives and Content

The aim of the course unit is for the student to further develop his/her performance experience and competence. The course unit consists of two parts.

  1. Preparation for a concert performance of at least 35 minutes. The performance repertoire may include both solo pieces and chamber music. If the student has the opportunity, he/she may perform with an orchestra or an ensemble of high professional quality. If this is the case, an agreement will have to be made with the student¿s principal instrument tutor and the course coordinator. Alternatively, both the MUV310 and MUV311 concerts may be combined into one concert of at least 70 minutes (2x35 minutes) during the spring semester (normally 2nd semester).

2. Participation in instrumental classes, ensemble activity (orchestral practise, sinfonietta, chamber orchestra etc.) and department projects. Details will be given at the start of each semester.

Learning Outcomes

The student should be able to:

  • Display independence in rehearsing a repertoire.
  • Realize and convey his/her musical intentions with a high level of musicianship.
  • Work interactively in a instrumental/vocal ensemble, and perform at a high level

The student must hand in an individual MUV310/MUV311 performance proposal form no later than 3 weeks before the concert. The student¿s principal instrument tutor must approve the performance place, date and repertoire. The student may under special circumstances have an audio recording of his/her performance assessed. This must be approved by the principal instrument tutor and programme coordinator in advance.
