Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the center of Europe, the birthplace of classical music, Kronberg Academy brings the top young violinists, violists and cellists from all continents together with the leading musicians of our day. In doing so, it gives pride of place to the unparalleled power of inspiration, through which living musical values are passed from one generation to the next. If the institution has gained an international reputation in the field of education over the past two decades, it is not only because of its motivational projects but also as a result of the exclusive study programme, Kronberg Academy Masters. What Kronberg today offers young violinists, violists and cellists was once reserved for cellists only. The first Cello Festival in 1993 was how it Read more all began. Cello masterclasses and competitions paved the way for Kronberg Academy’s development as an educational institution and young cellists were the first Kronberg Academy Masters graduates. Inspired by Gidon Kremer and musically developed and directed by conductor/ cellist Heinrich Schiff, the album’s programme is once again devoted entirely to the cello and its sonorous, melodious sound – brought to life by four young cellists from Spain, Germany, Russia and France, who have all studied at Kronberg Academy or are all currently studying there.
