Krzyżowa-Music: Music for Europe.
For the second time ever, this summer 2016, Krzyżowa, a place which like no other stands for the exchange of thoughts, culture and the European ideal, will offer internationally acclaimed artists and young, aspiring musicians the opportunity to live, rehearse and take part in performances together. The superior chamber music workshop Krzyżowa-Music with its festival flair will once again introduce itself with a series of concerts in Krzyżowa, Wrocław, and other places in Lower Silesia until finally presenting itself on a festival tour to Poland's capital Warsaw and through Germany.
The Summer Concerts 2016
Numerous masterpieces of chamber music literature will be studied and rehearsed in Krzyżowa by our Seniors and Juniors in August 2016. Starting 17th August 2016, they will be presented in evening workshop concerts on-site in Krzyżowa, but also in other places in Lower Silesia.
The Krzyżowa-Music Summer Concerts 2016 will take place in Krzyżowa and Lower Silesia as follows:

Symposium Musicians in Exile

The timeless topic of Musicians in Exile will once again accompany and enrich Krzyżowa Music on two evenings of the festival. More that 70 years after the end of the Second World War, the attention focuses on musicians whose personal lives and creative developments were never able to flourish as hoped after 1933.
Late-Summer Tour 2016
Following the workshop stage, our Late-Summer Tour 2016 will take selected Juniors and Seniors of Krzyżowa-Music to perform concerts at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the Young Euro Classic Festival in Berlin and to the famous baroque manor house Hasselburg in Schleswig-Holstein. They will also present the work of Krzyżowa-Music at the German embassy in Warsaw, Poland.
Artistic Director: Viviane Hagner
"Inspired by the many summers I spent at the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Vermont as well as by my activity on the Advisory Board of the Freya von Moltke Foundation, I discovered Krzyżowa to be the perfect place for such a chamber music festival in Europe. I am delighted that a number of my colleagues, including seniors of Marlboro, are joining me to make this new European music project possible."
Director General: Matthias von Hülsen
Matthias von Hülsen,
„It is with great joy that I took up Viviane Hanger’s idea of Krzyżowa-Music, to which I can now contribute my rich experience in founding and running music festivals in Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Krzyżowa is very close to my heart and I am deeply committed to it, not the least through my board activity in the Freya von Moltke Foundation.“
