“Mentoring young artists means an essential part to me. Back in 1992, the personal support I gained through Anne-Sophie Mutter and her Foundation “Anne-Sophie Mutter Stiftung” gave me the opportunity to have lessons with giants like Mstislav Rostropovitch, masterclasses with Frans Helmerson and Steven Isserlis.

This generous idea, to broaden your spectrum and as a next step to make music with your mentors on the world’s big stages was quite unique. I still remember the Fax message from Anne-Sophie, asking whether I would have the “time and desire” to play with her at Carnegie Hall in New York. The answer didn’t take me long…

Sharing musical experiences like this shapes you for the rest of your life. I am very much looking forward to exploring music together with our wonderful young musicians and audience at the Vevey Spring Classic!”

Creating links through sharing excellence is a value that the Vevey Spring Classic cultivates.
