»Rarities of Piano Music« at Husum castle
Under the artistic direction of pianist Peter Froundjian, the one-week festival has been taking place in August in Husum Castle every year since 1987. The aim is to draw the public’s attention to works that, despite their high quality, have not found their way into the current piano repertoire. The “Rarities of Piano Music” consist of nine concerts, a matinee and an exhibition. Through the production of a live CD (at the Danish label “Danacord”) a selection of the works played is distributed worldwide.
The 34th festival will take place from 14th till 22nd of August 2020.

However, the team of the Nordfriesland Foundation is monitoring the development of the situation very carefully.
