Ethnomusicologist Nino Razmadze – Deputy Director of the International Research Centre for Traditional Polyphony (IRCTP) of Tbilisi state Conservatoire was at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna – MDW within the framework of ERASMUS+program. On special invitation of the University professor Ulrich Morgenstern she delivered lectures on Georgian traditional music and instruments, performance practice was another main focus; the interested students and employees as well as invited persons had a possibility to get familiarized with the repertoire of Georgian instrument chonguri and a few Georgian songs accompanied by round dance.
For the future the University professors, world renowned scholars Ulrich Morgenstern and Ursula Hemetek will deliver lectures at Tbilisi State Conservatoire (TSC). International cooperation and establishment of close contacts with foreign colleagues is the priority of TSC and IRCTP.
We would like to express special gratitude to the host University and our colleague Prof. Ulrich Morgenstern, as well as to the Heads of the International Offices of TSC and MDW Mrs. Nana Sharikadze and Mrs. Anita Taschler.
