FESTIVAL MOMENTUM was established and celebrated its premiere in 2016 in Stolberg Rhineland Germany. Since than it takes place in an annual progress. Some of its intentions are to create job opportunities, support children and young people in their personal and artistic growth, to reach out to new audience groups who have never been in contact with classic music before, promote contemporary art and music, to set clear signs for a harmonious multicultural get together and many more.
In 2018, FESTIVAL MOMENTUM and FRIDAY NIGHTS WITH YURY REVICH cooperated.
The 4th edition of MOMENTUM “Clara Schumann and her sisters” was from 22.-28. July 2019: 72 artists in 12 concerts, 2orchestras, 1 international youth competition (Young Artists go classic), 3 premieres of contemporary music all in 7 days.
2019 is the year of Clara Schumann`s 200. birthday, an important role model in history. Her works weave through the whole Festival`s program like a red thread.
