The hall is half empty? So a nonsense – the hall is half full! To see how many people are interested in all the latest New music that lifts the mood. A colorful mixture of people came on Thursday to the concert hall, young Aficionados in addition to curious Mature listeners, you might as goodbye the next day, in a Brahms Concerto. A utopia seems to be realized here: that art can not only bring a layer, but really the whole of society together, at least for two hours.
March music-in-chief Berno Odo Polzer has apparently responded to last year's allegations that his Festival would lose in Performances and Lectures.
