„It is with great joy that I took up Viviane Hagner’s idea of Krzyżowa-Music, to which I can now contribute my many years of 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 least through my board activity in the Freya von Moltke Foundation.“
The paediatrician, Matthias von Hülsen, first entered the international music scene as a co-founder of the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival and head of the “Musikfeste auf dem Lande”. He further made his name as founder of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern as well as working as the long-time director of the festival. Together with the Moltke family and the Kreisau Initiative, he initiated and co-founded the Freya von Moltke Foundation for the New Kreisau.
