Le salon de Helen Buchholz
We don't know what kind of salon Helen Buchholtz, the Esch composer, would have hosted. So we reinvent it, we reinterpret it while focusing on this highly colourful character, her music, family and activities, her entourage, her period, her birthplace, Esch-sur-Alzette, and the European context.
Various events will be presented in the unexpected setting of the Helen Buchholtz Salon: an exhibition, concerts, readings, conferences, projections, training workshops, master classes, and guided tours.
Artistic director: Claude Weber, pianist (studied at the Salzburg Mozarteum). He was one of the first musicians to rediscover the music of Helen Buchholtz and has dedicated two CDs to her work for voice and piano.
Artistic director in residence: Claude Weber
In the framework of Esch22, European Capital of Culture.
