Thirty years ago, the “Initiativkreis Ruhr” was born.
It starts in the Stadthalle on March 9 with a foundation concert in favor of the Piano Festival. Then a big birthday is celebrated in a big way: Thirty years ago, the Initiativkreis Ruhr came into being, which brought the Festival, which is now a nationwide festival, to life.
A total of 20 world stars have assured their coming to the birthday party: Martha Argerich, Juliane Banse, Elena Bashkirova, Alfred Brendel, Adrian Brendel, Till Brönner, Khatia Buniatishvili, Michel Camilo, Frank Chastenier, Matthias Goerne, Dieter Ilg, Joseph Moog, Olli Mustonen, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Maki Namekawa, Dennis Russell Davies, Gerhard Oppitz, Thomas Quasthoff, Sir András Schiff, Yuuko Shiokawa and Sergio Tiempo. A Who’s Who of the international music scene is thus a rendezvous. The program is already fixed, but should be a surprise.
