The Giuseppe Sinopoli Academy of the Staatskapelle Dresden

In memory of the unforgotten Giuseppe Sinopoli and his tireless efforts in support of young musicians, the »Orchestra Academy of the Staatskapelle Dresden« was renamed the »Giuseppe Sinopoli Academy of the Staatskapelle Dresden« at a charity concert held on 21st April 2011, the tenth anniversary of his death. This was an important step in ensuring a solid future for the academy, which in the meantime has max. 18 members, enabling growth in the years to come. The Staatskapelle has always seen the nurturing of tomorrow’s musicians as a vital task. Its founding charter of 1548 even contains the stipulation that the older generation must pass on its knowledge to the younger.

Dresden’s College of Music was founded in the 19th century by a member of the Kapelle, while in 1923 music director Fritz Busch was instrumental in creating the »Orchestra School of the Staatskapelle «. Today the young musicians are instructed by experienced members of the Kapelle for a period of two years, which – ideally – will prepare them for a position with the orchestra. The unique sound and musicianship of the Staatskapelle can only be preserved for the years to come by this direct transmission of musical ideals and culture from one generation to the next.

The »Giuseppe Sinopoli Academy« relies solely on private donations and thus needs your continued support!
