The International Music Festival Koblenz (IMUKO) is taking place at the moment, with a remarkable group of artists performing concerts in the open air in locations ranging from a private garden to the courtyard of a castle. Many of the concerts are repeated, given the limitations placed on audience numbers, and for international audiences you can catch them all on the new platform Stage Hub.

For the first concert, earlier this month, cellist Benedick Kloeckner performed the three Bach cello suites alongside new pieces writing during the current crisis by composers from across the globe, including Dai Fujikura, Howard Blake and Elena Kats Chernin (worry not, you can catch the concerts on Stage Hub)

Looking ahead, at future concerts Kloeckner is joined by violinists Yury Revich, Tianwa Yang, and Kirill Troussov, pianists Louis Schwizgebel, Benjamin Grosvenor, Alexandra Troussova, Dane Dorken and Mario Haring, the Trio Sora, Ragnhild Hemsing on violin and hardganger fiddle, and many more with concerts stretching until September.

Full details of the programme from the festival website, and full details of the concerts on Stage Hub.
