Deutsche Welle Concert Hour

April 19, 2019 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm Australia/Sydney Timezone

German national broadcaster Deutsche Welle has kindly made available to Living Arts Canberra several of its English language programs.

Concert Hour features live recordings of the world’s music stars performing in German palaces, churches and concert halls, conveying the full immediacy and festivity of these renowned musical events.

Hosted and produced by Rick Fulker, Concert Hour explores festivals like the Bach Festival in Leipzig, the Richard Wagner Festival in Bayreuth and the Beethoven Festival in Bonn. We also pay a visit to Germany’s big, regional festivals, such as the statewide Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival in the North, MDR Summer Music in the East and the Rheingau Festival in the center of the country.

The concerts are recorded live by Deutsche Welle and its sister broadcasters in the ARD — Germany’s public broadcasting network.
