Festive Finale Concerto for the Hitzacker Music Week

St. Johanniskirche Hitzacker ·
Hitzacker (Elbe)

The Music Week Hitzacker 2014 is going to focus on music-centres along the river under the slogan "Elbe - Lifeline of Music". One of these centres is Hamburg and thus also Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach's 300th birthday. Hamburg was where he was most productive and imaginative, and to honor him the 28th Hitzacker Music Week's high-light will be the performance of his oratorio "The Israelites in the desert".
