Programme Advent Concert (in german) (PDF, 83 KB) 

Like every year, the Advent concert will be held at the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Bonn. Unlike past years however, the only persons in the hall will be the musicians and Secretary General Enno Aufderheide.

Instead, thanks to this year’s virtual format, the Foundation is inviting for the first time ever all Humboldt fellows and their hosts throughout Germany to attend. Several hundred guests will experience the virtual concert live. In addition to reviews of the past year with Enno Aufderheide, classical music will be the focus of the event: This year, Chancellor Fellow and clarinettist Ruzaliia Kasimova and her piano partner Polina Kulikova will perform pieces by Mozart and Alexander Grechaninov, among others.
