TFF Rudolstadt is Germany’s foremost festival of roots, folk and world music. Held in the central region of Thuringia, it’s also one of the top world music festivals in Europe. It takes place annually from the fi rst Thursday in July until the following Sunday and attracts up to 25,000 people daily.

TFF Rudolstadt dates back to 1955, when the 1st Festival of German Folkdance was organized in Rudolstadt. It evolved into an East German celebration of folk dance with strong East European participation. Following German reunifi cation, in 1991 the festival was relaunched with a completely new concept. Initially a forum for the traditional folk scene designed to bring Germans from east and west closer together, TFF rapidly grew into a world music festival of international renown.

Diapason D’Or Arte and Choc de Classica for Accentus Music

Classica Magazine honored two of Accentus Music’s recent releases with its prestigious Choc de Classica: Zhu Xiao-Mei’s recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations and the Memorial Concert for Claudio Abbado. Furthermore, the moving Memorial Concert is also granted a Diapason D’OR Arte in April.

With closed eyes, Zhu Xiao Mei creates her universe. Close-up cameras dissect the flexibility of movements that follow the musical curves. One and a half hours go by as if by magic…“, such is the verdict of the editors of the French Magazine Classica. Awarding the Memorial Concert for Claudio Abbado, played by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra under the baton of Andris Nelsons, they pointed out “the powerful images of musicians playing in tears, without cameras being too intrusive in that moment that belonged only to them… Then comes the crushing silence under the gaze of an emotional conductor, who was able to take his share of grief in a collective mourning.
