Kronberg Academy. 16 – 23 June. Violin Masterclasses & Concerts
This summit meeting of violinists is a public teaching and learning event. Five violin luminaries spend one week teaching violin students, who travel to Kronberg from all over the world. Anyone who listens in on the public tuition sessions can see and hear how many ways there are to get closer to music.
Each of these lessons is a fount of really special moments that draw us close to the young musicians and music. Absolute mastery is displayed in the concerts given by the teachers, outstanding young musicians, Kronberg Academy alumni and famous guests. A violin makers’ exhibition is part of the varied supporting programme with its focus on the violin.
