In the introductory chapter of this book, Alexandra Kertz-Welzel presents the metaphor of educational landscapes as a tool for exploring the various intentions and objectives that institutions and organisations offering cultural and musical activities may have. The metaphor is discussed in relation to the German concept of Kulturelle Bildung (cultural education), highlighting how various educational opportunities together enable the inhabitants of a community, a city or even a nation to experience rich, meaningful musical encounters and modes of music education. This chapter serves as a great reminder that music academies or conservatoires represent only one part of a much larger educational topography, and, for these institutions to be successful in their encounters with the surrounding world, they will have to know about, and treat with great respect, the other parts and “organisms” of this musical-cultural landscape, since all components are, in fact, interdependent.
