Welcome friends

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Fortepiano Festival.


In talks and cooperations with our concert guests, partners and performing artists, the initial Hammerklavier Concert developed into a festival of its own that is second to none. We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to all contributors.


On the occasion of the anniversary, we have decided to place none other than Frederic Chopin at the centre of this year's concerts. Chopin contributed significantly to a new understanding of music, was a bridge builder between classical and romantic music and has shaped classical music to the present day. Our festival is dedicated to this "innovator of classical music" with concerts, literary evenings and the proven Young Talents and Klassik ist Klasse series. Let us surprise you. It will be worth it.

This 10th festival can only take place with the help of numerous supporters. Our heartfelt thanks go to all of them! Special thanks go to the supporters and sponsors of the Fortepiano-Konzertverein e.V., with whose help this project became possible.
