May 8 – 13



Dear Fans of Musikfest Eichstätt,

And just like that, our spectacular anniversary edition "Musikfest Eichstätt: 10 Years!" is finished. In beautiful sunny weather, the Baroque city served as the backdrop for six days of fine concerts. Our fantastic audience ensured sold-out halls and a welcoming atmosphere.

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to this unforgettable week, especially the amazing ensembles from around the world who filled Eichstätt's historic rooms with their wonderful music: Voces8, Hirundo Maris, Anima Shirvani, Armonico Tributo Austria, Ensemble all'improvviso, Cappella Academica Frankfurt, and Lina Tur Bonet and Diego Ares – it was great to have you here!

The new formats we explored in our 10th-anniversary edition were enthusiastically received: an idyllic countryside excursion, promenade concerts of Baroque music in the modern buildings of architect Karljosef Schattner, and the breathtaking performance of one of Eichstätt's children's dance groups.

Buoyed by these events and all of the positive feedback we have received, we truly look forward to festivals of the coming years.

If you don't want to wait that long to experience Musifest Eichstätt again, don't miss the upcoming broadcasts of selected concerts from Musikfest Eichstätt 2024 on BR-Klassik.
