The Balthasar Neumann Academy

The Balthasar Neumann Academy was founded by the two Balthasar Neumann Ensembles and has for many years been making an important contribution to the task of promoting a new generation of young musicians.

The Academy’s declared aim is to communicate music directly: a passion for music is handed down to the next generation by making sure that music is something they can experience for themselves at first hand. The Academy is also committed to maintaining and preserving the cultural legacy of Europe and ensuring that this legacy remains anchored in the consciousness of the public at large. It promotes dialogue and cultural exchange.


The Balthasar Neumann Academy is supported by three distinct pillars: a scholarship programme, various school projects and a transatlantic training programme, the Cuban-European Youth Academy (CuE).
