As a third cycle, students may apply for the Meisterklasse, which, when completed, is the equivalent of a doctorate. As a requirement for acceptance, the applicant must pass a demanding qualifying exam on a high level.

For the Meisterklasse, which is pursued over four semesters, there will be a limited number of places available.

The degree for the Meisterklasse consists of three separate concert examinations with the following contents:

  • Mixed repertoire (including chamber music)
  • Solo concert
  • Public recital
