The International Ensemble Modern Academy at Klangspuren 2020 is again offering an improvisation class. It is being taught by the Berlin-based clarinettist and saxophonist Frank Gratkowski, who has extensive experience in different ways of improvising. This new additional offer in the curriculum is open to everyone interested in improvisation. Students can work together on basic techniques of improvising as well as on models for structuring their improvisations. The results of the rehearsals will be performed both in the improvisation class’s own public concert and also in the so-called Wandelkonzert.
