New Jury for the Kranichstein Music Prize 2016

Since its foundation in 1952, the Kranichstein Music Prize (Kranichsteiner Musikpreis) has been closely linked to the Darmstadt Summer Course. It has been awarded 34 times to a total of 175 laureates so far. For many of them the renowned prize has been an important milestone at the beginning of their career as musician, ensemble or composer. The total endowment sum of the Kranichstein Music Prize in 2016 will be 6,000 EUR, consisting of 3,000 EUR for the interpretation prize (ensemble or soloist) and 3,000 EUR for the composition prize.
Since 2010, an independent jury awards the Kranichstein Music Prize. The three-member jury is invited by the artistic director of the Darmstadt Summer Course, Thomas Schäfer. It consists of protagonists from different musical fields and jury members change at irregular intervals. For the Summer Course 2016 accordionist Eva Zöllner, who already was member of the jury in 2014, composer Joanna Bailie and festival director Thorbjørn Tønder Hansen have confirmed their participation.
