Violin & Viola Masterclasses

Autumn 2025

Great virtuosos and great teachers show us what lies within and behind the music.

In 2025, the Kronberg Festival becomes a summit for the violin and viola – a public teaching and learning event where six violin and viola luminaries teach students of all nationalities. Anyone who listens in on the public tuition sessions can see and hear how many ways there are to get closer to music. And in years when the Violin and Viola Masterclasses take place, these instruments are given great prominence in the concurrent Festival. Featuring young masterclass participants and celebrated virtuosos alike, the Festival concerts provide the perfect showcase for absolute mastery.

Learning from masters


As always, the highlight of the violin and viola masterclasses are the two final concerts in which new discoveries are presented. Selected master students perform and four sponsorship prizes are awarded.
