Tobias Krutz, violinmaker and cellist

Dr. Ing. Thomas Zwieg, Product Development Manager at Larsen Strings A/S, and the violinmaker and cellist Tobias Krutz will explain and demonstrate how musicians can optimise the tonal quality and playability of their instruments: What difference do strings make?

Disaster or opportunity?

Sources of J S Bach’s suites for unaccompanied cello

Dr. Norbert Müllemann / Photo: G. Henle Verlag

Dr. Norbert Müllemann, editor-in-chief at G. Henle Verlag

The six solo suites by Bach are among the works which accompany all cellists throughout their lives. Yet why are there so many different editions of this classic collection on the market? Dr Norbert Mülleman, editor-in-chief at G. Henle Verlag, sheds light on the mystery of the sources. Do the problems surrounding how these works have been handed down actually present today’s cellists with an opportunity?

Julia Kadar, marketing consultant

How can I get the right artist photos? Do I need a website, Facebook and Instagram? Some young musicians may feel a little lost when it comes to marketing and social media PR, though even in the world of classical music these are now essential. Marketing consultant and owner of premiertone.com, Julia Kadar, explains basic principles for successful presentation on the online stage.
