"a cappella" #20 is over – but you can still hear it all around...

The fabulous 20th edition of a cappella, the annual gathering of the vocal music world in Bach-town Leipzig, is over. We can only quote our artistic directors of amarcord:


"...reading the reviews and still feeling deeply grateful and happy, filled with music, friendships, love and joyful memories of this unbelievably amazing jubilee of the International Festival for Vocal Music a cappella week! Huge thanks to everyone who helped making this 20th edition such a happening!"

 

Luckily, there's always to chance for some retrospective sounds of the a cappella week: MDR Kultur once more broadcasted almost the complete Final Concert of the festival 2019, and it is still available a couple of days at the media library of MDR Kultur. Use the chance to listen again to the great performances of amarcord, Banchieri Singers, Chanticleer, German Gents and The Swingles once more – here:

In additon, Deutschlandfunk made a recording of three other festival concerts. You can listen to them in the coming months:

- on June 17th: "After Silence", the concert of Voces8 (UK)
- on July 14th: "A polyphonic kaleidoskop", the concert of Huelgas Ensemble (BE)
- tba: "Folk Songs", the concert of Trio Mediæval (NO)

 

 

And last but not least: You can get back in the festival mood with the great pictures made by Holger Schneider and Sören Wurch during the festival week! Check them out in here in our gallery 2019!

 

So stay tuned and enjoy!
