In the last years the scene of classical music wasn't innovated with the result of still living an ideal of the 19th century. To fulfill the demands of todays society and maintain the heritage of classical music, it must be searched for new models and concepts.

The master thesis sees classical concerts as cultural, staged and social happenings. Though designing these concerts consciously it can fulfill the needs of its users - the public - and can be experienced individually.

Studies include both existing concert formats and current developments, as well as expertise and public positions, so that key variables can be identified. Starting from this material an interdisciplinary group works on possible solutions. These should inspire and guide both musicians and cultural managers to work with concept for classical music that are innovative and holistic.
