For a number of years the Bachakademie Stuttgart has offered introductory events to the Akademie concerts. These have proved extremely popular, no doubt precisely because they are often more than just a dry lecture in their content and communication. The musical salons are an enjoyable and accessible bridge between music and scholarship; they are not only for members of the Friends of the Bachakademie – guests are welcome at all these events.
Members of the Bachakademie staff invite experts from a wide range of artistic and cultural spheres to participate in discussions in the musical salons, and with their guests present the composers and works to be featured in forthcoming concerts. They give informative explanations in an entertaining way which would not be possible in a normal half-hour concert introduction. At the end of these hour-and-half events, we invite you to the winter garden of the Bachakademie. With a glass of wine, you can chat with the speakers, members of the Friends’ committee, and above all with other guests, and end the evening in an informal atmosphere amongst friends.
On Thursdays at 19.00 before the Akademie concerts in the Saal der Bachakademie.
(11 May 2017 In the Buchhaus Wittwer At 20.00)
For members of the Friends of the Bachakademie entrance is free, and for all other visitors there is a charge of 8 Euros (including a drink).
