Unexpected musical experiences and personal encounters are trademarks of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The festival programme includes a broad range of series and »festivals within the festival«, where visitors can discover and focus on particular elements through a wide range of supplementary activities such as guided tours, listening experiments, artist talks and discussions over several days.
Promising young artists from all over the world present themselves in the series »Junge Elite« and »Bothmer-Musik«. The »Landpartie« invites you to a musical excursion to the countryside. And the »Grenzgänge« format takes you into the young jazz scene. Discover more about our various Festspiel elements here.
In 2023, Martynas Levickis will make his mark on the Festival Summer as Artist in Residence in 26 concerts and events. This means that the Lithuanian accordionist can finally realise the residency he had already planned for 2020. Together with close friends and other festival prize-winners such as clarinettist Matthias Schorn, cellist Anastasia Kobekina and the Heath Quartet, Martynas Levickis will present all facets of his instrument in intimate chamber music, a tango opera in collaboration with the Ballett-Vorpommern and the Theater Vorpommern, as well as in large orchestral concerts with the NDR Radiophilharmonie, the Bundesjugendorchester, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and his Mikroorkéstra.
