Trust foundations


The Kronberg Academy Foundation would not be able to function without the valuable financial support of its partners. To that end, Kronberg Academy cooperates with various foundations. In addition to working with partners such as the Gidon Kremer Stiftung, the Board of Directors of Kronberg Academy Foundation manages a number of trust foundations in line with the wishes of the generous benefactors. All these trust foundations are recognised non-profit organisations – donations and endowments can therefore be offset against tax.


Rostropovich Cello Foundation

In keeping with Kronberg Academy’s objectives, in 1997 Mstislav Rostropovich established a foundation to provide support for new generations of highly gifted cellists. The Rostropovich Cello Foundation awards scholarships to outstanding cello students and makes it possible for up-and-coming young artists to practise and perform chamber music works with world-famous soloists. The Rostropovich Cello Foundation was set up with the support of the Deutsche Bank Foundation and continues to rely to a large extent on the support of committed donors.

Yuri Bashmet Viola Foundation

Inspired by Kronberg Academy’s first Viola Festival and taking up the idea behind Mstislav Rostropovich’s foundation, in 1998 Yuri Bashmet, too, established a foundation in Kronberg. With the help of the Yuri Bashmet Viola Foundation, Kronberg Academy provides support for young violists, particularly by lending them valuable instruments and by enabling them to take part in masterclasses and competitions. The Yuri Bashmet Viola Foundation is still dependent on donors to fulfil the additional objective of providing scholarships for young violists.

Goltermann Cello Foundation

The Goltermann Cello Foundation was set up by Frank Goltermann in 2013. The foundation is dedicated to the memory of the Frankfurt cellist and great-great-grandfather of its benefactor, Georg Eduard Goltermann, and provides support, in particular, for the initial and further training of gifted next-generation cellists. For instance, travel scholarships are awarded to enable young cellists to take part in the Cello Masterclasses.

Fondazione Casa Musica

The purpose of the Fondazione Casa Musica is to provide support for young musicians as well as to establish multigenerational living accommodation and a meeting place for musicians. It was set up by Dr Claus Becker in 2015. In 2016 the foundation acquired a large plot of land some 3,000 m2 in size in Kronberg together with a house that is now used by Kronberg Academy students as shared accommodation and a meeting point.

Independent foundations


Gidon Kremer Stiftung

The Gidon Kremer Stiftung is a legally established foundation that works closely with the Kornberg Academy Foundation. The Gidon Kremer Stiftung is committed to providing all-round support for next-generation musicians. It also furthers the activities of the chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica, enabling it to pass the tradition of classical and contemporary music on to the next generation and to take it to all levels of society in all parts of the world. At the request of its benefactor, Gidon Kremer, in 2008 the seat of the foundation was transferred to Kronberg. This has enabled close cooperation between the two institutions.
