Chamber
Music Connects
the World

from 9 to 19 May 2024

Oh, how beautiful and powerful chamber music is! Because it brings us very close to the soul of music.

Especially when 30 of the best young talents from all over the world meet great musicians of our time and together with them discover selected works tone by tone and make them shine. Because what is the best way to learn from your role models? By making music together with them. This has been happening every two years in Kronberg for 23 years. And every time it is an experiment that makes everyone involved happy - including us, who are allowed to listen to the public rehearsals and concerts.

Would you like to experience how music is created? Then come to the Casals Forum in May!

With the seniors Gary Hoffman (cello), Gidon Kremer (violin), Enrico Pace (piano), Miklós Perényi (cello), Lawrence Power (viola), Sir András Schiff (piano), Antje Weithaas (violin) and 30 talented juniors from all over the world.

Pieces by Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Dvořák and others.
