“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 track of someone like him. Each year on 27 April, the anniversary of his death, all friends and admirers of Mstislav Rostropovich are invited 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.
