From Kreisau to Japan

Established in 2002 by Holger Simon and Christoph Altstaedt, the Young Sound Forum of Central Europe has quickly made a name for itself as one of the most remarkable youth orchestras in Germany. For the past two years, Polish and Czech musicians have also played with the orchestra which was awarded the "Grant for Young Artists" in 2004. This autumn, following a rehearsal phase in the Polish city of Krzyzow, the orchestra will go on tour to perform concerts in several cities in Japan as part of the exchange programme "Germany in Japan 2005/06".
