Greetings for the year 2020

Dear Friends and Concert-visitors,

The mighty Corona changed our entire planning and canceled all major concerts by October 31, 2020. The first master classes “Singing”, “Oboe” and “Violoncello” fell victim to the pandemic, “Horn” is completely booked out and is being held in a one-to-one manner in accordance with Corona. Culture and art are particularly badly affected by Covid-19. We try to implement smaller activities, taking all precautionary measures and safety requirements into account, so that the music in the Priental doesn't fade away. We will invite you to special events separately and to a limited extent. So we hope to see you all again soon in one form or another and we wish you good health.

after during our year-end-concert 2019 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart accompanied us into the new year with his music we can now present the plannings for the year 2020.

As already for many years there are several international master-classes. Above all our wonderful soprano Helen Donath will again come back to Sachrang after one year of Sabbatical together with her husband Klaus for creating an intensive week with young gifted singers. Another comeback will happen with Wolfgang Boettcher, the „Doyen“ of cellists worldwide. Independant of his already quite advanced age he will create with all his freshness a very intense and and fruitful week with young international cellists.

Additionally as every year there are master-classes for horn with Johannes Hinterholzer, for oboe with Maurice Bourgue and Hansjörg Schellenberger, and pädagogic activities of Margit-hnna Süß for harp. At the end of every master-class-week there will be a final concert where the young musicians present there scills to our public.

And as in every year we are planning several exiting concerts during the season. Every concert has its own profile and is always connected with young musicians. And I’m especially happy that I could win the participation of the very gifted young cembalist and organist Johannes Berger from Seebach nearby to join as executive member our Musikforum Sachrang e.V. He will be giving many new impulses and ideas for our work within our institution. End of June he will also create a concert with excerpts of the collection of „Müllner-Peter“.

There will be a easter-event with readings of textes of classical time with Peter Weiß (speaker) and Hansjörg Schellenberger  improvising on his oboe. In the summer a group of young musicians will play pieces around Beethoven for his 250th birthday.

On 1st of Advent we will have in Sachrang again – in some changed form – the typical „Paradeisspiel“ which had so much success last year. And since the year 2020 is dedicated to Beethoven’s 250th birthday we will end the year with his music – but especially with rarely known early wind-music of the composer mostly from his time in Bonn.

With great joy I want to invite all of you again to our musical events. The Musikforum Sachrang e.V. is thankful for any kind of support as we have no foundings from official side and we do all of our activities out of our own energy and enthusiasm. This is all possible only by the team of extremely addicted friends and supporters in our village who by there intense work make all of what we do possible.
