Course contents

This course focuses on the close of the overall study at a higher institute of education. Efforts culminate in presentation in the most appropriate light of preparations for the final master's graduation concert. Here the search ends for appropriate compositions for the close of study and at the same time efforts are made to find new works at the Composition Dept. created through personal initiative. A great emphasis is placed on innovation, originality and to a certain extent, a risky approach to values not yet tested through repeated performance. A considerable part of study are issues of dramaturgy of the current and future solo performances. It is necessary, in some manner, to reinforce the established dramaturgy which is common, primarily, in the European context. A great emphasis is place on the thorough study of the instrument's history, instructions and performance tradition in our country and in the world based on appropriate and primarily interesting choices of master's thesis topic which would eruditely supplement and develop the to-date knowledge of the study.
