Transatlantic Music Project
Lewis Kaplan is one of the great violin instructors – and performers – of our time. His passion for teaching and playing is evident in his initiative with this project based in New York and Cologne.
America’s probably most renowned music conservatory and Europe’s largest music academy joined in a multi-year project: that’s the brainchild of Lewis Kaplan, the world-famous violinist and professor at New York’s Juilliard School. “For me, it was always important to think about the future in a positive way. And it’s obvious: Our students are the future,” he said to DW after a concert by his protégés in the chamber music hall of Cologne’s Academy of Music and Dance.
