Tune in on July 3 at 12 PM (ET) for a program of works by Akira Miyoshi, Luciano Berio, and Beethoven

We're coming to you from the Kronberg Academy in Kronberg im Taunus, Germany, for the weekly concert of the Kronberg Academy Young Virtuosi Series, featuring violinist Seiji Okamoto. For this concert, entitled “From A to A, muss es sein?” Seiji is joined by violinist Elias David Moncado, violist Noga Shaham, and cellist Ivan Skanavi

A former prize winner at the J. S. Bach and Wieniawski International Violin Competitions, Seiji is a graduate of the Tokyo University of the Arts and the Hochschule für Musik “Hanns Eisler” Berlin, and is currently a Professional Studies Program student of Antje Weithaas at the Kronberg Academy. Seiji’s solo engagements include performances with the MDR-Sinfonieorchester Leipzig, St. Petersburg State Academic Symphony Orchestra, Belgian National Orchestra, Orchestre Royal de Chambre de Wallonie, NFM Filharmonia Wroclawska, Opole Symphony Orchestra, Lodz Philharmonic Orchestra, Plock Symphony Orchestra, Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, and the New Japan Philharmonic.  He currently performs on a 1831 G.F. Pressenda on generous loan from “Munetsugu Collection”.

Every Wednesday at 12 PM (ET), audiences can watch an hour-long concert featuring the Kronberg Academy's students from the Professional Studies program and the Sir András Schiff Performance Program for Young Pianists. Recorded at the Carl Bechstein Hall, the recital programs were designed by the young artists themselves, and often feature their friends from the Academy’s Bachelor and Master programs performing alongside them.
