From 5 to 10 May, MUSICA+ is hosting the chamber music festival "Mirrors" in Frankfurt am Main. The Orangerie, a former greenhouse belonging to the Rothschild family, is located in the middle of the city but still surrounded by greenery. For many years now, the music festival has been bringing internationally renowned chamber music artists to the Orangerie, where classical music can be experienced by all in a particularly intimate atmosphere. 

Artistic director Claude Frochaux and his team attach particular importance to being close to the audience:

Whether for connoisseurs or discoverers, young or old, school classes or loners - MUSICA+ makes classical music an experience for everyone. Because music creates a connection between people, educates and integrates.

At this year's "Mirrors" festival in May 2023, visitors will be invited into a musical hall of mirrors: Double identities, mirrors of the soul, correspondences and hidden quotations meet musically. The mirror motif is also the driving force behind the choice of pieces, programme curation and spatial design. The same applies to the 1:1 CONCERTS, where a musician from the Musica+ Ensemble and a listener meet face to face for a ten-minute miniature concert. This blind date is a surprise for both sides: artist, work or instrument are not revealed in advance. Thus, the mirror motif is not only presented thematically, but becomes truly visual between musician and listener.
