Welcome to our 2020/21 season!
Music and architecture melt together into a Gesamtkunstwerk when the Augustusburg Palace in Brühl becomes a concert venue. For over six decades, this UNESCO heritage site’s magnificent Baroque staircase, designed by Balthasar Neumann, has provided a backdrop for concerts as unusual as it is atmospheric. Music from the palace’s own period in particular is performed here. From May 9th 2020 through February 21st 2021, the palace, surrounding park and nearby churches will become venues for a total of 33 concerts plus two fireworks displayed synchronized to music. Following five concert weekends in May, June an July, with music ranging from Baroque to the Romantic, comes the annual Haydn Festival from August 14th to the 23rd, the only one of its kind worldwide. In the winter months, the four-part series ›Bach at four‹ invites you to discover the musical universe of Johann Sebastian Bach through moderated afternoon concerts.
