Greetings for the year 2019

An extremely intensive and in musical as well as pedagogical respect extraordinarily successful year 2018 is completed. For all of us - musicians, teachers and helping team - it lead us to the limits of our physical and mental power. Sachrang is a beautiful small village in the bavarian mountains (with the official title "Bergsteigerdorf") and has only very few regular inhabitants. The more it's astonishing to experience the enormous readiness of the village not only to make our work possible but accompany us with such an intensity and enthusiasm. So at this place we want to thank from deepest heart the team led by our friend Dieter Höpfner who help us without any payment to make the work with Musik Forum Sachrang possible!

For 2019 we have again prepared some master-classes and concerts - but this time different from 2018 with a significant reduction of our projects through the year - yet with the idea as always to present the best possible quality in pedagogic and artistic respect in order to spread more and more the established fame of Sachrang in the world of music as a place of musical encounter and development.

Concerning our master-classes there will be again the traditional events with classes of Margit-Anna Süss (harp), Maurice Bourgue and Hansjörg Schellenberger (oboe) and Johannes Hinterholzer (french horn). Unfortunately we will not have our dearest friend the soprano Helen Donath in 2019 as she wants to do a sabbatical in this year. But she promised to be in Sachrang again in 2020 with all her power.

In respect of the concerts we will do in 2019 there are apart of the final concerts of our master-classes events which we call "side by side" where we combine programs with young gifted musicians who play together with experienced artists. All those concerts are traditionally concentrated in the silent time (all-saints, before christmas and years end) which can be especially experienced in our beautiful silent village.

We are very much looking forward into all of our events in 2019 and would be happy if you not only will visit our concerts with all your friends - but also maybe help us by any means to make our work with the young gifted musicians. We are very much looking forward into the musical year 2019 in Sachrang.
