Cellist Benedict Kloeckner curates the Internationales Musikfestival Koblenz and launches latest album


Benedict Kloeckner enjoys an exciting summer at the helm of the 6th Internationales Musikfestival Koblenz in Germany as its Artistic Director. The Festival, which runs from 12 July - 21 September, will feature a star-studded line-up of guest artists including pianists Benjamin Grosvenor and José Gallardo, violinist Yury Revich, prima ballerina Liudmilla Konovalova, and actor Julian Weigend, alongside Benedict in a variety of showcase chamber concerts at spectacular venues.

Under Benedict’s curation, the Festival will present the theme of “home”, following Benedict’s philosophy that music, far beyond its beauty and joy, can offer people a sense of home across borders.

Benedict will be doubly busy this summer following the release of his latest album with pianist Danae Dörken last Friday. Zwischen Nostalgie und Revolution (recorded on the Genuin label) will receive its official launch on 15 July (19:00) in concert at Berlin’s A-Trane.
