Dear friends of the Summer Academy for early music,
Thanks to the tireless commitment of our team of the Neuburg cultural office and numerous volunteers and supporters, who found again a practicable and save solution in the second Corona summer, we managed to create an extremely lively and satisfying summer academy in 2021. It was a great event with the main focus on the music of double celebrator Michael Praetorius (1571-1621) and contemporary composers. Once again, a huge thank you to all of you for your efforts to guarantee the academy’s success! For this year’s summer academy, we have again created a rich program which will focus on Georg Philipp Telemann and his “gout mélangé”. On the following pages, our wonderful team of lecturer will be introduced. On 9 August 2022, we will give a common concert in the “Kongregationssaal”. Another highlight of the early music-week will be the final of the Biagio-Marini-competition in the “Kongregationssaal” on 7 August, when young ensembles will present themselves to the jury and audience. It has become a wonderful tradition for our participants to give spontaneous open-air concerts in the evenings and we look forward to continue this tradition. And finally, we look forward to the splendid final concert on 13 August when our participants will present their results after the course week marked by intensive work. With keen anticipation to an intense week with a wide variety of meetings in summery Neuburg, I remain with cordial salutations,
Artistic director for early music
