Musical Life in Germany at the Crossroads between Tradition and the Future
Musical life has always been strongly influenced by exchange and international contacts. This helps orchestras, opera houses, performers and researchers to remain versatile and thus fit for the future. Today, however, increased digitalisation results in particularly rapid and significant changes. What does this mean for the music business?
