Friends’ Asso­ci­ation Inter­na­tion­al Kurt Mas­ur Institute

Kurt Mas­ur has always been an artist who was devoted to people’s daily life and who saw a spe­cial task and pur­pose in encour­aging oth­ers to take respons­ib­il­ity for our time and our world. Regard­less of all the forms of soci­ety that this event­ful cen­tury held in store for him, he had always pre­served, defen­ded and car­ried on his human­ist­ic atti­tude. With his cour­ageous demean­or, his words and his music, many people exper­i­enced edi­fic­a­tion and encour­age­ment. The motto of the Inter­na­tion­al Kurt Mas­ur Insti­tute “By the power of music” mani­fests itself through music­al encoun­ters, a doc­u­ment­a­tion centre on the life and work of Kurt Mas­ur, the pro­mo­tion of young musi­cians, sym­po­sia and encoun­ters on social issues.

The friend’s asso­ci­ation of the insti­tute con­siders it a gift, but also an import­ant task, to sup­port the Kurt Mas­ur Insti­tute in its spir­it. Let your­self be inspired by the work of Kurt Mas­ur and become part of our com­mon work by becom­ing a mem­ber of the Friends’ Association.
