With pleasure we can see again and again that graduates of the academy prove themselves as soloists in the hard competition of concert life or gain leading positions as professors at universities and concertmasters or soloists in important orchestras.
The incomparable atmosphere of the old part of Cervo has always fascinated the students and contributed to the creation of a spirit of friendship and teamwork that in two weeks often created exceptional performances. A big “Cervo music family” has developed, that lives together here, making wonderful music and also includes the competent and interested audience.
We thank the community of Cervo, the district of Imperia and the region Liguria for their long standing cooperation. At the same time we say thanks to everyone, who has filled with their collaboration the academy with life and substance, first of all my wife Elfe von Arnim, who died in 2004 and who was the heart and soul of the academy for a long time. Without her tireless effort during the first years the academy would not exist today.
