International Academy for Higher Education
in Music and Performing Arts
“Aimart could refer to a concept of love for art; a meeting place for those who love the most intimate, uncontaminated concept of this word.”
A term, art, that can easily be abused and made synonymous with approximation and mediocrity; imprisoned in the (all too) “human” sense of things; in a frustrating cage every artist wants to escape from and flee to his ideal world. Aimart is this world, it is this very place!
It’s something that surpasses the boundaries of the very meaning of the word “art” with unassailable honesty and finds therein what an artist has always sought: the expression of inspiration, that vital energy that pulses in one’s sensitivity and demands to recount the mystery enclosed in the soul via music, theatre, dance, cinema. The names of this Academy’s founders, and the masters teaching here, make the value of Aimart perfectly clear.

Book and Artistic Heritage
The library, undergoing inventory and catalogue work, is almost entirely made up of funds, in optimal conservation state, from a donation from the family of the musician Helmut Reichel, a Swiss orchestra conductor living in the XX century at Zurich, the city where he long, successfully worked as an organist, piano teacher, and founder and director of the choir Zürcher Bachkantorei, distinguished by performances with various organs, whose high artistic level is also borne out by the disco recording of the holy music of Johann Sebastian Bach and Antout on Bruckner. Given the origin, the fund book and artistic heritage comprises over a thousand music scores and texts, completed by the related parts. Masses, symphonies, Concerts, Quartets by the principal composers between the XVIII and XX century, from Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven to Schubert and Dvorak, to name but a few, enhanced by an outstanding quantity of scores for solo instruments (in particular for Piano, Violin, Violincello, Organ) and chamber music with and without piano (duo, trii, etc.)uartetti pretQ.
