The Conductor The Composer The Violinist

"It has been both a great pleasure and an honour for me, on the occasion of the release of "JOSEPH HAYDN SYMPHONIE NR. 52 C - MINOR"-DVD, to express at last my gratitude to the fantastic musicians of the SchlossCapelle, to our enthusiastic, art-loving audience, to our sponsors and to all benevolent spirits.

When human beings listen to one another – to quote Carlos Kleiber freely –
a very special kind of magic always arises which is a beautiful testimony to the
blessings effected by the give-and-take of chamber music, even when performed
by an orchestra.

I would like to express my admiration for the exciting, enthralling and above all candid artistry of the musicians.
The SchlossCapelle has celebrates many years of adventure, yet the contrast between their financial possibilities and the artistic quality that they have attained could not be greater. One must also mention here the invaluable work of the board of our association ("du holde Kunst!"), which can not be praised too highly.
Together we have lived through challenging times, yet we have nevertheless – or perhaps for that very reason – so often played wonderfully together
... for which I thank you all!
