It has been announced today that the German-based Kuss Quartet will perform a special upcoming ‘Solidarity with Freelance Musicians’ benefit concert – to be streamed live internationally from Villa Seligmann, House for Jewish Music in Hannover, Germany.
The online concert, created by international management agency Dorn Music together with Villa Seligmann will be streamed live on The Violin Channel on Sunday 22nd March at 5pm (CET)/12pm EST.
“Many freelance artists are suddenly faced with a devastating loss of income, and we want to give them an opportunity to continue creating music while calling for solidarity,” event organizer Tanja Dorn has this week told The Violin Channel.
“Viewers can donate via social media and donations will be distributed by a range of non-profit organizations to benefit affected musicians.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Bernhard Fleischer of BFMI, one of the industry’s leading producers for concert broadcasts … the Kuss Quartett will perform the first concert next Sunday and we plan to make further weekly concerts with top soloists and performers available to a global audience from Villa Seligmann,” she has said.
“In times like these, Beethoven’s music is perhaps among the best to bring this message … I am particularly looking forward to the planned online concert series with top contributions,” Villa Seligmann Director Eliah Sakakushev-von Bismarck has said.
Sunday’s program will include Beethoven’s String Quartet in F Major Op. 18 No. 1, String Quartet in F Major Op. 135 and String Quartet in A Minor Op. 132.
