Mahler-Festival 2021 in Leipzig

16 September 2019
Gustav Mahler is one of the most important composers of the late Romantic period and is also regarded as the most influential reformer of the musical theatre. He was born in 1860 in Kalischt, today's Czech Republic, as the second oldest of 14 children. The highly gifted Jewish composer and conductor gave music lessons at the age of  6 and went to the Vienna Conservatory at only 15 years old. This was followed by an outstanding career as a conductor and opera director, which took him to numerous cities over the years, including Kassel, Prague, Budapest, Hamburg and Leipzig. His years in Vienna, however, marked a high point in his career. There he introduced the modern opera production, which combined modern stage sets, music and action to create a holistic experience. Mahler was also strongly influenced during his work in Leipzig. There he began to compose his symphonies, which remain world-famous to this day. On the occasion of the 110th anniversary of his death, the Mahler Festival will be held in Leipzig in 2021. From the 13th until the 24th of May 2021, ten of the greatest national and international orchestras will perform at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, presenting all his symphonies and other orchestral works. Musicians from German cities, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Austria will travel to Leipzig for the performances and enchant you with the sounds of the symphonies. We still have some tickets left and would be happy to organize your group trip to Leipzig!

250 Years of Ludwig van Beethoven in 2020

09 May 2019
Ludwig van Beethoven ranks to be the most frequently played classical composer and pioneer of Romantic music. He was born in Bonn in 1770 – being baptised on the 17th December the same year. Being not older than seven, Beethoven already performed in public for the first time and soon afterwards made a name of himself being a piano virtuoso. His relocation from Bonn to Vienna led Beethoven to Joseph Haydn, Johann Georg Albrechtsberger and Antonio Salieri. Due to difficulties hearing which, in the course of time, had even led to deafness, Beethoven focused more and more on composing. Thereby, he strived for every single note and had to rework and improve his works over and over again. From all his accomplishments, his nine symphonies stand out the most.
