2013 marks the 50th anniversary of Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s death and the music world will pay tribute to this grand composer.
The Bavarian State Ministry for Science, Research and Art has therefore decided to proclaim a “Karl Amadeus Hartmann Year 2013”.
Minister of State Dr. Wolfgang Heubisch will assume the patronage.
The Karl-Amadeus-Hartmann-Gesellschaft e.V. acts as initiator, intermediary, source of inspiration and organizer.
The artistic director of the festival is the conductor Andreas Hérm Baumgartner.
