Feedback "Crescendo Summer Institute"
Josef Hussek, former opera director of the Hamburg State Opera and former artistic director of the Salzburg Festspiele, Vocal Coach
Your Crescendo Institute is truly something special. In the atmosphere of a magical landscape, a picturesque small town,there has developed in the course of the years a music festival unparalleled in its interaction of music, teaching, reflection and joy of living. Young people meet each other for several weeks, form contacts, work on their musical talents, have exchanges with experienced artists. Coming from all over the world, young artists work with experienced teachers, share the experience of high-quality musical events, but also search for and find in the power of faith the inner balance needed for their profession. There are many masterclasses, summer courses, competitions, festivals. The Crescendo Institute has something of all of these. Yet the whole is more than the sum of the parts. For it includes an inner reflection on artistic work in a concept for learning and teaching in which the participants take with them not only new experiences, but also an enriching knowledge of the holistic nature of their profession as artists. I wish the "Crescendo Summer Institute" many more good and successful years.
