Dresden Music FestivalFeeling the beat – the Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward
The Dresden Music Festival has taken place every year since 1978. Since 2004, Glashütte Original has supported the Saxon cultural spectacle by awarding a special prize. It was initially established as SAECULUM, a prize honouring an artist's lifetime work, with winners such as the conductor Kurt Masur, choreographer John Neumeier, opera director Joachim Herz, violinist Gidon Kremer and mezzo-soprano Christa Ludwig.
Bearing a prize money of 25,000 Euros, the “Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward” will be donated by the watch manufactory Glashütte Original for the 16th time in 2018 and presented in cooperation with the Dresden Music Festival.
As in past years, the award is manufactured by two students at the company’s own “Alfred Helwig” School of Watchmaking.
