Before the summer break, our Astor Trio will play in the Humboldt Hall on Saturday, 25 May 2024. The audience can expect a fantastic concert that spans a wide range: from sonatas by Johann Sebastian Bach to artful tango compositions by Astor Piazzolla, arrangements from George Gershwin's "Porgy & Bess" and virtuoso Spanish music by Manuel de Falla. The world premiere of the second Buenos Aires Fantasy by Tobias Kassung will also be a special highlight.

The opening concert with UWAGA! in the new Humboldt Hall in February was already a great success. The audience in the sold-out hall celebrated this extraordinary and captivating quartet with standing ovations. The Kölnische Rundschau newspaper ran the following headline after the concert: "New era for chamber music in a full hall". We are happy about this new venue for our chamber concerts in Cologne and hope that we can find an acoustically excellent home here for many years to come.  

Humboldt-Kammermusiksaal Köln
This year, we have also set a focus under the title Kölner Klassik © NRW 2024, where works of recent and new music that are outstanding in their quality and have a connection to NRW will be performed side by side with more well-known chamber music. After the summer break, two major concert highlights await the audience: on 9 November 2024, the outstanding 8Celli will perform at the chamber concerts in the Humbodt Hall. And there will be a very special programme with string quartet, in which a fantastic and almost completely forgotten work by Cologne composer Heinz Pauels (1908-1985) will be performed for the first time in over 40 years.

In order for the chamber concerts to continue in the future, we need you above all - dear audience: continue to remain loyal to us, experience the fantastic concerts in the new Humboldt-Hall and support us especially with a sponsoring membership in our non-profit supporting association. 

You can find detailed information about the sponsoring association and the possibilities of support here.

Thank you very much!

Your Tobias Kassung
