Germany

With a long-established office in Berlin, we have made something of a specialty of eastern Germany, which has never lost its old-style respect for culture and music, and has benefited from a huge improvement in its infrastructure since reunification. Hotels are relatively inexpensive, concerts in churches and halls are well attended with discerning audiences, and the once-neglected historic buildings and monuments have mostly been restored to their former glory. We have also planned tours to western Germany for a very long time, with excellent musical contacts in the Rhine Valley, Romantic Road and Bavaria.

Germany is a land of culture, castles, cathedrals and composers. The following touring ideas comprise many of these elements:

  • Perform in Kölner Dom, visit Beethoven’s birthplace in nearby Bonn and take a trip down the romantic Rhine
  • View mad King Ludwig’s castle in Neuschwanstein and give concerts in enchanting churches along Lake Constance
  • Stay in central Germany and walk in the footsteps of the great German baroque composers: Bach, Telemann and Handel
  • Sing in the Marktkirche in Halle where Handel received his first organ lesson at the age of four
  • Visit Leipzig and perform in Bach’s favorite church: the Thomaskirche, where he worked for 27 years, and sing prayers for peace in the Nikolaikirche, where the fall of the wall began
