Our Institute of Musicology is one of the largest of its kind. By offering courses in all three areas of the discipline – in historical musicology, systematic musicology and ethnomusicology – the institute offers all students at the university in the various degree courses the opportunity to deal comprehensively with the scientific side of their subject, up to and including doctoral studies. As an important addition, the area of music education is also being expanded at this institute and integrated into the university’s degree courses.
The staff’s research focuses include music and dictatorship, interpretation research, music sociology, music for keyboard instruments, music geography, audiovisual media and popular music. The organisation of conferences and congresses, numerous publications, two series of publications, a large number of ongoing research and doctoral projects as well as the intensive activity of the Ben-Haim-Forschungszentrum, which is based here, are proof of the high academic standards of the institute in close proximity to the practical training of the university.
