Dear friends,

We are back!

In the past 12 months, the whole world has been forced to recalculate its usual direction. All of us have been confronted with the invisible enemy called covid-19, and we are just about starting to see the light at the end of a tunnel.  It is with a big amount of hope and with my fingers crossed, that I am preparing the 2021 summer festival program. From the start in 1990, the educational part of the Zeist Music Days Festival has been a completely inseparable and integral part of the festival. This summer we are planning to have it in a more compact set-up, but at the same time with the highest artistic and organizing level. Now I am addressing you – young musicians from different countries and continents.

We will be able to invite no more than 4 chamber ensembles, preferably string quartets, and offer them 14 days of extensive and varied activities. Each day starts with masterclasses by our guest teachers, involving violinist Marc Danel, who is also artistic leader of The Netherlands String Quartet Academy (NSKA), cellist and frequent guest at our festival Orfeo Mandozzi and all members of the Jerusalem Quartet. On top of these masterclasses, you will have a chance to be present at all the festival’s concerts and to perform a number of public concerts with your group, so you can bring the new ideas which you will get from the Masters, into practice. I am sure that this will be an unforgettable experience for you at our festival.

Looking forward to meet you in Zeist,

Alexander Pavlovsky
