Dresden Music Festival Celebrates Brilliant Finale and Sets Revenue Record

For the Dresden Music Festival, the most diverse and successful season in its history draws to a close today. The legendary guitarist Eric Clapton performs the last concert, bringing 26 vivid festival days under the motto »Visions« to a rousing finale. Over the course of three and a half weeks, a multi-faceted program featuring 56 concerts of different genres – from classical to jazz, world music and blues rock – curated by Artistic Director Jan Vogler proved once again that the Dresden Music Festival, founded in 1978, has long risen to the top of the European festival landscape.

Finale with a Premiere: Eric Clapton and Jan Vogler at the Dresden Music Festival

The 42nd Dresden Music Festival ends with a premiere on June 10, 2019: the legendary guitarist Eric Clapton plays the final concert of the classical music festival, which was founded in 1978, thereby broadening the festival’s spectrum to include rock and blues music for the very first time. A very special artistic encounter awaits the approximately 4,000 visitors to the Dresden Fair.

Joshua Bell Is the Recipient of the 2019 »Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward«

The violinist Joshua Bell is one of the great performers of our times; since his Carnegie Hall debut in 1985, he has been able to look back on performances with almost all the major orchestras and conductors in the world. His concept of music as a means of trans-cultural understanding plays a central role in the school reform project »Education Through Music and Turnaround Arts« of the NAMM Foundation, enabling disadvantaged children to gain access to classical music in many different ways.
