Music (Performance Practice)

Those wishing to study performance practice post-1800 will benefit from access to state-of-the-art facilities, as well as period-specific resources. For those wishing to study mid- and late-19th Century music, we have an 1851 original Erard piano which can be used for performance of relevant repertoire; and those with an interest in 20th and 21st Century music will have the opportunity to work with the department�s �Ensemble in Association�, the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group.

Course modules

The course features 5 taught modules and will culminate in a substantial solo recital, with commentary. This pathway focuses on the performance of music post-1800, but we also offer an Early Music Perfomance Practice pathway.
