Germany's musical lifeEnlarge image (© dpa)
Germany's musical life is noteworthy in equal measure for its rich history and its wide array of contemporary currents. It has never been concentrated in a few towns, regions or institutions. Given the diversity of Germany's musical landscape, it is especially worthwhile to gather information in a single place. This responsibility has been assumed by the German Music Information Centre (MIZ), the authoritative source for facts on every aspect of Germany's musical life. Anyone wishing to learn about Germany's many orchestras and music theatres, or its musical training and advanced education programmes, or amateur music-making and the music industry, will find a wealth of information at the MIZ.
