“I carry my ideal concept around with me like a lamp.”

A Day for Mstislav Rostropovich

His ideals and ideas captured everyone’s attention. The great cellist Mstislav Rostropovich made a significant contribution to the development of Kronberg Academy. The world must never be allowed to lose someone like him completely. Every year up to the 10th anniversary of his death on 27 April 2017, Kronberg Academy has invited all friends and admirers of Mstislav Rostropovich to an extremely lively “appointment with Slava” in Kronberg, which also includes a benefit concert for the Rostropovich Cello Foundation that he set up in Kronberg in 1997.
