Clear the stage for three young talented scholarship holders of the Jürgen Ponto Foundation! In addition to the two cellists - 14 and 16 years old - who play the classical cello literature with Haydn and Tchaikovsky, a work of the Mannheim School will be heard again in good tradition. The 16-year-old Elias David Moncado will play the Violin Concerto in C major by Johann Wenzel Stamitz, whose birthday this year marks the 300th anniversary of his birth. Stamitz was first concertmaster and, from 1750 until his death, instrumental director in the court orchestra of Elector Carl Theodor von der Pfalz. The violin virtuoso is considered the spiritus rector and founder of the famous Mannheim School, which had a great influence on musical culture throughout Europe.
