Best masterclasses in Europe

About us

The Schlossakademie opened in 2018 with the first International Music Festival, "Schlossfestspiele Hohenpriessnitz". Participants of each masterclass receive a unique and special experience.

World-famous pedagogues in violin, cello, viola, piano, composition, and orchestral conducting share their secrets of instrumental playing, honed over years of practice.

Our students perform alongside professors, presenting a rich and versatile program on a high international level for sophisticated European audiences. We're proud to have excellent, internationally renowned professors and concert musicians teaching in our academy, including Prof. Mihaela Martin, Prof. Boris Kuschnir, Prof. Frans Helmerson, Prof. Viktor Tretiakov, Prof. Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, and many others.
