From 10 April to 23 May 2021KlangART-Vision is presenting sensational concerts. “Making us aware of the cultural wealth of our society is an inspiring concern,” write the makers. Due to the corona restrictions, all events will be broadcast on the festival website and on YouTube from the Magdeburg Open Channel and its partner channels from Wettin and Wernigerode.

Artist in Residence in spring 2021 is the pianist Elena Bashkirova, who, among other works, will play Piano Sonata No. 5 by Galina Ustvolskaya and Piano Concerto No. 1 by Dmitri Shostakovich. In addition, Dmitri Shostakovich’s song cycle “From Yiddish Folk Poetry” op. 79 will be performed in Dessau on the actual opening day. More details on dates and performers can be found below.

Behind the KlangART Vision is the International Academy of Media & Arts e.V. (IAMA). The association in Halle sees itself as an interface between artists and the media. The core task of the Academy is, among other things, the promotion and further training of young creative talents, developing and training practical skills tailored to the industry.

With the KlangART vision, the International Academy of Media & Arts is building bridges from Saxony-Anhalt to the world. Even the first festival days in autumn 2020 was a people-connecting experience in times of general contact restriction.
