Hitzacker Summer Music Festival
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The festival has featured chamber music in the countryside since 1946. The festival's motto: "Tradition and Today - A Step Ahead since 1946." Or, as the critic for the North German Broadcasting Corporation put it in August, 2013: "The bottom line: Hitzacker is and remains to be a place for discovery, experiment, intensive debate.Fantastic!"
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Welcome to the 70th summer festival in Hitzacker! For nine days today's chamber music elite will honor our birthday, including Maurice Steger, Naoki Kitaya, Heinz Holliger, the Ensemble Resonanz, Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, Rachel Roberts, Florian Donderer, Lars Vogt, and, from the younger generation, the Trio Catch and the Doric String Quartet. Serbian composer Milica Djordjevic will receive the annual Belmont Prize, and jazz pianist Florian Weber and fortepiano expert Kristian Bezuidenhout will each present recitals, as will Festival Academy's young artists. The festival will close on August 2, as it did in 1946, with a musical and culinary birthday matinee in the middle of town and a grand orchestral concert.
