What influences the response, volume and timbre of my instrument? How can I optimise this?

Talk with Thomas Zwieg and Prof. Maria Kliegel (Larsen Strings A/S)
Details >

Mastering technical challenges and finding authentic musical expression are key to the successful performance of compositions. To achieve these things, the instrument needs to respond easily and produce a rich variety of harmonic colour.

Prof. em. Maria Kliegel ((Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln) and Dr.-Ing. Thomas Zwieg (Chief developer at Larsen Strings A/S) provide insights into how instruments, strings, bows and bowing techniques interact with one another, and into what can be done to influence qualities such as response, articulation, volume and tone

Talk given in English. Free admission.

Talk by Thomas Gerbeth (master bowmaker)

Considered to be the perfect bow wood, Brazilian Pernambuco has been used to make bows for stringed instruments since the late 18th century. However, the Pernambuco tree is today among the endangered species of Brazil’s forests. In his talk, master bowmaker Thomas Gerbeth from Vienna will speak about this material that is so important to bow and instrument making, and about the potential regulations we may see in future from the UN conservation organisation CITES.

STRINGTELLIGENCE – String secrets to optimize your performance.

Talk with Dipl.-Ingenieur Bernhard Rieger (Thomastik-Infeld GmbH)
Details >

Musical Strings have an essential impact on an instrument’s performance and their importance is usually underestimated. They are a direct “translator” between the players hands and the instruments response and literally connect both – technically and also musically. When searching for “the ideal” setup, strings can inspire the musician for a full artistic expression or also can limit it. When we carefully choose them from the big variety of options, a rich balance between so many – also contradictory - aspects of sound, projection and playing feel can be found. Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Bernhard Rieger (Thomastik-Infeld GmbH, Wien) will give an insight in numerous string secrets that can help to orientate musicians personal search and optimize their performance.

During his final diploma year, Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Bernhard Rieger has worked for AKG Microphones / Headphones. Since the he is working for over 20 years as product developer at Thomastik-Infeld GmbH and specialized on cello and double bass strings. Since having finished his double-bass studies with excellence at the Conservatory of the City of Vienna, Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Bernhard Rieger has been invited as guest-player in Viennas top orchestras. He is working daily with musicians of various levels to guide them to find their personal ideal string set up. Recently he took over the String Developers team at Thomastik-Infeld as Director of String Development.

Kronberg Festival 2022

“WORK OF ART” TOUR
SCULPTURES AROUND THE CASALS FORUM

Music has shape and sometimes shapes are like music – “C major” and “Timbre” are the sculptures created for the Casals Forum by artist Sir Tony Cragg, and the sculpture “Hommage à Pablo Casals” by Walter Schembs watches over them from the neighbouring Victoria Park... These short sculpture tours allow participants to get to know the new Casals Forum.
Concert | (H)AUSKLANG
A powerful conclusion to the Kronberg Festival awaits: the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, conducted by Christoph Eschenbach and with soloist Christian Tetzlaff, will fill the Casals Forum with sound right up to the rafters, performing works including Johannes Brahms’s violin concerto and Antonín Dvořák’s symphony “From the New World”.

We have often experienced that the members of the Ohrwurm family all have something to do with music through their relatives, that is, they are musical. But whether this is also the case with people, we want to check in the concert. That's why Christoph and the Ohrwürmer have invited some (very) young musicians, together with their string and wind instruments and some parents.
