About Chamber Music Connects the World 

  • Since 2000
  • Every two years
  • Kronberg and Frankfurt am Main
  • Sponsored by Crespo Foundation

Chamber Music Connects the World took the basic concept of Rudolf Serkin, one of the founders of the Marlboro summer school, and gave it a unique European set of dynamics. This highly acclaimed chamber music project allows exceptionally gifted young musicians to play with some of the leading instrumentalists on the international music scene. Every young musician, regardless of his or her connections, can apply to take part.

It also broadens the traditional teacher-pupil relationship in that they work on pieces by playing them together. Playing together in concerts is the highlight of this formative experience for the participants. Through their personal involvement as "Seniors" in this project, great musicians, such as Yuri Bashmet and Gidon Kremer, support Kronberg Academy in its aim to educate and provide a sound promotional platform for a new generation of chamber musicians.
