(From the latest Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music Newsletter)

'Far from the tumult of arms'
Artistic Director Lindsay Kemp writes...

'My profession is very far from the tumult of arms and from the reasons of state that cause them to be taken up. When I mingle French airs with those of the Germans and the Italians, it is not in order to incite a war, but it is rather, perhaps, a prelude to the harmony of so many nations and to amiable peace.'

The previous festivals offered tours of the great musical traditions in Europe, taking listeners to Flanders, Austria, Bohemia and even to… Switerland! This year we are initiating a series of festivals dedicated to some of the most significant courts in music history: towns where enlightened princes maintained chapels and composers over a number of generations, nurturing the finest of Europe’s music during their golden ages. …”
