Symposium "Improvisation Shapes the Future"
We know that the “great” composers Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven were masters of improvisation and used it as a creative source for their compositions. We also know that the importance of improvisation was lost to the public during the 19th and 20th centuries. Drawing on Beethoven’s life and work, various experts will investigate improvisation as an aesthetic phenomenon that has provided both possibilities and difficulties for historical and contemporary composers. What does musical innovation look and sound like today? The creative music scene faces new challenges, particularly in times of digital change, with algorithms increasingly taking over all areas of life.
The names of the speakers will be announced as soon as possible.

The symposium is open to the public and admission is free of charge.
This event is organized in cooperation with the German National Museum of Contemporary History (Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland).
Admission is free of charge.
