2021 Kronberg Academy Festival Program Announced

To be held from September 29 to October 3, this year’s festival is entitled "Women Power Music" and will include workshops, talks, and concerts

 

Now in its fifth year, the festival takes place in Kronberg, Germany every two years, involving string players from across the world and offering six days of high-level music and artistic talent.

The festival will involve 26 compositions by diverse generations of women. Each of the 14 concerts will be introduced by the artists to allow listeners a greater understanding of the compositions.

Kronberg Academy’s orchestra in residence will be the Kremerata Baltica and will be conducted by Teresa Riveiro Böhm.

Professional musicians to perform in concerts include Mischa Maisky, Gidon Kremer, Clemens Hagen, Martin Helmchen, Kirill Gerstein, Christian Tetzlaff, and the Schumann Quartet. 

Also part of the festival will include lectures on the topic of this year’s theme, presented by female professors; workshops between students and pedagogues; and the violin making workshop and exhibition.

"The Kronberg Academy Festival 'Women Power Music' brings women to the forefront of musical attention," a statement by the festival reads. "Not as muses and mere listeners, but as makers and creators with their own musical voices. Music as a means of female empowerment and the issues surrounding a “different” history of music are at the heart of this year’s festival. For almost an entire week, everything will center on female composers and their works."
