We have already written of the celebrations for our fiftieth anniversary.
For various reasons, the date of the fiftieth anniversary is fixed for Saturday 19 October — and no longer the 12th as indicated in the newsletter of 1 January — and the Board has settled upon the definitive programme.
After our General Assembly and a ‘glass’ among friends, we shall offer you a concert, to be held in the Salle Cortot, a venue steeped in history, an annexe of the École Normale de Musique which this year celebrates the centenary of its foundation by Alfred Cortot.
In order to establish a bridge between the generations and across frontiers, we have chosen to invite a string quartet, the Varian Fry Quartet, comprising young musicians of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, something that brings us even closer to Furtwängler.
We are currently working towards the success of this project, and will keep you posted..
