The idea sounds equally natural and unspectacular. Some of the best musicians of our times have been meeting every summer for 20 years in the idyll of Moritzburg: for intensive rehearsals of chamber music’s world literature, past and present, and for various concerts, where they present those works to an experienced, enthusiastic and sensitive audience. In addition, talented young musicians from all over the world are invited to the Academy, where they benefit from the experience of the Festival’s artists – regardless of their background or financial means.
Based on this broad cultural spectrum, every summer, what happens in Moritzburg is very close to the ideal concept of a modern society. The harmony at work is real, curiosity about one’s musical colleagues pronounced. Tolerance and openness towards new ideas, lifestyles, cultures and backgrounds are so much a matter of course that even mentioning them seems artificial. To me, it becomes clearer and clearer that I wish to share the joy this international and intercultural exchange gives me: the freedom we feel during rehearsals and concerts, the unlimited opportunities for expression, our trust and our friendship.
In 2015, the Moritzburg Festival will take place from the 15th to the 30th of August. We look forward to seeing you again.
Yours Jan Vogler
