Dear Fans of Musikfest Eichstätt,
From May 12 to 14, 2023, the most beautiful halls of the Baroque town of Eichstätt will resound once again with early music performed by our accomplished guest musicians, attracting audiences near and far to the picturesque Altmühltal. The focus of this year's festival is consort playing, a fascinating concept from the Renaissance era in which several instruments, mostly from the same instrument family, play together.
Savor the enchanting tones of groups of viols, transverse flutes, and lutes; enjoy a family concert for young and old on Mother's Day; stroll in the Hofgarten among the sweet chirpings and trillings of both recorders and birds; and experience the musical fireworks of the grand finale when the Belgian vocal ensemble Vox Luminis meets the Lautten Compagney Berlin.
The complete program can be found here. Advance ticket sales have already begun!
We are looking forward to welcoming you to an entire weekend of historical music in Eichstätt's most atmospheric venues.
We are delighted that Minister of State Markus Blume has assumed patronage of Musikfest Eichstätt 2023.
Heidi Gröger, Artistic Director, Musikfest Eichstätt
Joachim Kraus, 1st Chairman, Alte Musik Eichstätt e.V.
