Constanze Wimmer: Alban Berg: Violin Concerto
Constanze Wimmer and Helmut Schmidinger provide numerous suggestions for group activities relating to the concerto, which teachers can adapt for various ages and levels of musical proficiency. The suggestions presented exemplify the best practices of teaching artistry as described in the definitive book on the topic, David Wallace's 2007 Reaching Out: A Musician's Guide to Interactive Performance. Performers and educators enrich the lives of those with whom they share their love of music. Through interactive teaching, they also increase their own understanding of the music and therefore the effectiveness of their performances. If this book is any indication, Universal's Listening Lab series will provide a valuable resource. I hope this book will be used by performers, programme hosts and music teachers. I know I'll have a copy with me at my next performance of the Berg Violin Concerto.

"Universal Edition's new Listening Lab series offers practical and inspiring approaches for children, young people and adults. Music educators will find concrete suggestions that open up and allow for a deeper understanding of each work. Alban Berg's Violin Concerto is the first in a series that presents orchestral works of the 20th and 21st centuries for practical use in music education. There are numerous project suggestions for workshops containing different modules relating to the concerto. This is an invaluable resource for teachers and educators"
