Pantonale decided this year to hold a peace festival in the Berlin Philharmonic and at the Brandenburg Gate, due to the current geopolitical situation. True to the words of the Dalai Lama, "Peace begins within us".

Artists from Ukraine, Russia, France, Italy, Colombia, Austria and Germany attended the festival. Award-winning accordionists Yuri Shishkin, Eduard Akhanov, Volodymyr Kashuta and Vitaliy Shal (guitar) performed the opening concert at the Trinitatis Church Berlin Charlottenburg. The "Kollektiv Duo" Raphael Brunner (accordion) and Juan Carlos Diaz (flute) from Austria and Colombia performed their own compositions such as "Plátano" and "Gameflow".

The "Quinteto Respiro" (France), presented their new program "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Modest Mussorgski, arr. Gustavo Beytelmann. The concert programs also included works by Ukrainian composer Viktor Vlasov, Georg Gershwin and Alexander Tsfasman.

A string quintet from the Berlin Symphony Orchestra and pianist Dmitri Pavlov provided the musical framework for the concerts.
