European Chamber Music Academy

Chamber Music in Grafenegg






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.
