Musical Life at the Crossroads between Tradition and the Future


How are we shaped by tradition and heritage? What is the impact of globalisation on the traditional music business? The effects of which international developments can be felt most strongly? What are the trends? What will the future bring for established structures and institutions? What does the audience want? Different points of view on the music business open up new vistas. We will gain special insights into the rich and varied musical life in Germany; Points of view from abroad round off the discussions.
