NDR Kultur's compelling playlist is shaped by the great composers' most beautiful and moving works, each one interpreted by world class soloists and renowned conductors.
In addition, its programming covers all facets of cultural life. Be it art, theater, opera, film, new literature, DVDs, or concerts: NDR Kultur reflects the full and diverse areas of culture, keeping its listeners informed around the clock of the most important cultural events in contemporary life. News, magazine features and numerous tips on events to attend will keep you completely informed. In addition, NDR Kultur produces its own outstanding content with concerts, readings, radio plays, and live broadcasts.
In all this, the supporting of young talent is of paramount concern to NDR Kultur. For many years, it has given a stage to highly gifted students, even as part of its daily program. NDR Kultur's producers offer the best young musicians the chance to step up to the microphone – under professional conditions. These recordings of excellent, compelling chamber music are then becoming an important component in NDR Kultur's musical program.
In its series ›Start – Junge Künstler live‹ (›Start – Young Artists Live‹), NDR Kultur regularly explores the music academies within its broadcasting region and frequently showcases concert performances by outstanding students. NDR Kultur also visits music competitions, accompanying musical talents from their very first concert all the way to their entrance into the world of professional music. On the fourth Friday of every month, NDR Kultur presents the ›Stars von morgen‹ (›Stars of Tomorrow‹), the young musicians who have won international prizes or whose concerts in the NDR broadcasting area have caused a stir, among them the Prize Winners of the ›Joseph Joachim International Violin Competition Hannover‹.
The targeted promotion of young musicians is the first step towards world class talent – with NDR Kultur you can follow this progression from the front row.
