“Momentum is a fantastic initiative and I support it with all my strengths! The new generations of musicians need to be supported in these difficult times because simply, they are our future, and we need a better future! Let’s take good care of them, let’s all support Momentum!”
MOMENTUM, Our Future now.
Talent and hard work are one thing – but tomorrow’s soloists and conductors also need occasions to prove themselves. Therefore, the soprano and conductor Barbara Hannigan has launched the initiative »Momentum. Our future, now!« Leading conductors and soloists share their rehearsal and stage time with young artists, giving them that very chance – especially in the current crisis.
Renowned soloists such as Patricia Kopatchinskaja, Lars Vogt and Renaud Capuçon support »Momentum«, as do conductors such as Lahav Shani, Karina Canellakis and Esa-Pekka Salonen; through the scheme, the Gürzenich Orchestra has joined the ranks of such institutions as the Munich Philharmonic, London’s Wigmore Hall and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
