Programme 35th »Rarities of Piano Music«12th to 20th August 2022
For the impressive 35th time, the festival “Rarities of Piano Music” invites you to the castle of Husum from August 12 – 20, 2022. This fact is not only evidence of the viable concept of this festival, but also of the incredible abundance of all those remarkable compositions among the neglected that have been written for this self-sufficient musical instrument over the course of a good 300 years.
In fact, of this year’s 70 programme items, only seven have been heard in all the years of this festival since 1987. It also demonstrates a considerable degree of idealism on the part of the participating pianists to commit themselves to works, which are generally unduly neglected in the musical world.
The exhibition on Leopold Godowsky, which was planned for 2020 and unfortunately could not be realised last year either, will finally be shown.
For sure, this edition of the Husum Piano Festival also promises a lot of inspiring and enriching musical experiences.
