The Repertoire 2021 

More than 40 chamber music pieces

More than 40 chamber music pieces will once again be rehearsed this summer in Krzyzowa/Kreisau – please find below the repertoire list of pieces you might be listening to. In-depth interpretations will be acquired through many intensive rehearsals. At least one experienced musical personality (Senior or Mentor) who is familiar with the piece participates in each chamber music formation.

It is only towards the end of the rehearsal period, when the artistic management decides which pieces will be performed in concert. If required, pieces may also be performed in a final public rehearsal. The audience is cordially invited to follow this process in the rehearsals. Due to this process, it makes little sense to publish the evening programmes in advance. The final evening programmes are decided on only a few days before the performance. Please find the actual programme, three days before the concert, on this website.
