Rising Stars is a unique and forward-looking collaboration between 22 of Europe’s leading concert halls, all members of the European Concert Hall Organisation (ECHO). Six young musicians and ensembles from various countries are selected each year and given the opportunity to tour the concert halls and perform before international audiences.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear tomorrow’s classical music stars today. Experience shows that those who are selected as Rising Stars also have internationally successful careers. This year’s Rising Stars will be presented during an intensive weekend of chamber music at Konserthuset Stockholm.

German percussionist Vanessa Porter, nominated to Rising Stars by the Cologne Philharmonie and Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, has powerful intuition for the music of our era. She is also a composer herself and we will get to hear her Folie, which involves electronics, and a new piece by Georges Aperghis, Le corps à corps, commissioned by ECHO. The programme also includes music by Salvatore Sciarrino, Vinko Globokar and German jazz saxophonist Alexander Kuhn.
