Each year in early summer, musicians of the Dresden Staatskapelle and its associates meet for the Shostakovich Festival Gohrisch. This focus on Russian music of the 20th century has resulted in the establishment of a small orchestra.

Concertmaster Federico Kasik studied in Lviv (Lemberg) and Dresden before embarking on a career in the Dresden Saxon Staatskapelle. As a soloist he has appeared with orchestras in Germany, Poland, Austria, Ukraine and Switzerland, and is active in chamber music, among others with the Fritz Busch Quartet. Since 1989 Friedwart Dittmann has been principal cellist in the Dresden Staatskapelle where he is also chairman of the Artists’ Union for chamber music concerts and conductors’ debuts. He studied in Weimar and is personally engaged in the development of musical training.
