Heart blood

Date on request

Robert Neumann . Piano
Susanne von Gutzeit . Concertmaster

The amazing symphonic-sounding joy of playing of the 17 strings of the SKO is difficult to describe in Grieg, but it can be heard. Grieg himself emphasized how much "lifeblood" was in his quartet.

Date on request

Dr. Josef M. Gaßner (Astronomer, known from his program with Harald Lesch on ZDF and BR) . Lecture
Thomas Zehetmair . Conductor

String theory is only a theory, but it is valid until it is disproved.
