Stringendo has existed since 1999 and can look back on a string of successes, including prizes in numerous competitions and countless concerts that the group has given throughout much of Europe. It was founded by Jens Lohmann as a focus of creativity for young and exceptionally talented prizewinners to meet and make music together. Today, its members, who range in age from ten to 25, work regularly under Jens Lohmann’s direction in two ensembles, Generationen 14 and 4Kids. Among the recurring formats in which they appear are the Stuttgart Christmas Concerts and the New Year Concerts in Zurich’s Wasserkirche, but each year their focus is also the Herbst in der Helferei Festival, where they are joined by international celebrities such as the violinists Roby Lakatos, Sebastian Bohren, Patricia Kopatchinskaja, the conductors Howard Griffiths and Mario Venzago, the cellist Mischa Maisky and the oboist Albrecht Mayer. Stringendo implies a sense of new departures and of movement: the dynamism and energy of this group of young musicians are a guarantee of enthusiasm and inspiration .
