Gezeitenkonzerte in East Frisia

A festival for classical music in East Frisia was established by the local government association under the title of “Gezeitenkonzerte in East Frisia” [Tidal Concerts in East Frisia] at the beginning of 2012. Matthias Kirschnereit has been the artistic director of the festival since the very start. Approximately thirty concerts take place every Summer in churches and castles in the region between Dollart and Jadebusen. In addition to chamber concerts (for example with, among others, Sharon Kam, Lars Vogt, Daniel Hope, Grigory Sokolov, Albrecht Mayer, the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Daniel Müller-Schott, Maria João Pires, Sabine Meyer), the program also includes Jazz and Baroque Music. One focus of the Gezeitenkonzerte is to promote talent, another is to attract the next generation of young artists through family offers as well as their participation in projects such as “Rhapsody in School” and TONALi. The heart of the Gezeitenkonzerte is located directly in the forum of the association “Ostfriesische Landschaft” in Aurich.
