Baltic Sea Music Forum

This year, too, the Baltic Sea Music Forum , which has become a tradition, will take place from September 22 to 26, 2023, in the special ambience of Stolpe Castle on Usedom.

Internationally renowned cellist, chamber musician and conductor David Geringas will serve as artistic mentor for master classes for musically gifted students. The master classes and concerts are an exceptional podium for concentrated work with renowned artists and programs that closely follow the dramaturgy of the Usedom Music Festival.

David Geringas is one of the most versatile musicians of our time. Born in Vilnius/Lithuania, cellist and conductor David Geringas is one of today’s musical elite. An unusually broad repertoire, from the earliest Baroque to contemporary music, testifies to the artist’s flexibility and curiosity. His intellectual rigor, stylistic versatility, melodic sentiment, and tonal sensibility have earned him accolades around the world.

The Rostropovich student and winner of the 1st prize and gold medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition (1970) can now look back on a career spanning decades. He has worked with many renowned artists both as a cellist and as a conductor. For years he has been coming regularly to the Usedom Music Festival to show and pass on his skills.
