||Welcome – Herzlich willkommen – Bienvenue!
Dear friends of the Kurt Weill Festival in Dessau,
With satisfaction and not a little pride we look back on the development of the past years while remembering the very first festival in 1993. We recall that it was in the autumn of 1992 when three representatives of the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music in New York commissioned the mayor at that time, Jürgen Neubert, to found a festival which would honour the memory of local boy Kurt Weill. In the meantime these tender beginnings have grown and solidified into a permanent music festival, attracting outstanding artists and wonderful audiences. We are truly grateful for this happy development, while not forgetting the responsibility to send a positive image of Saxony-Anhalt out into the world.
Reflecting the character of Kurt Weill, we have organized a highly diverse, life-affirming festival which nonetheless will provide much food for thought. We warmly invite you to Dessau to make a musical trip through time in this city of classical modernity!
Come to the city of classical modernity and take a musical journey with us – we can't wait to see you!
We will be happy to send you free and non-binding information about the Kurt Weill Festival. Just leave us your address.
