Welcome to musica vivendi®

German Version / Deutsche Version

We are delighted to welcome you to our website. In addition to offering a choice selection of orchestral performances, we also present “collages” between music and literature, carefully compiled in close collaboration with dramaturges, musicians and actors. As well as traditional concerts, we also strive to provide a space for other art forms, such as literature, film and photography, always closely associated with classical music.

Since January 2007 we have owned a share in the Solo Musica label. This has given us an opportunity to support our projects commercially through the production of high-quality CDs and DVDs. On the other side of the coin, we are involved in the organisation – both planning and procurement – of the renowned Herrenchiemsee Festival.

As a result of our assorted responsibilities and the associated time investment, we are unfortunately no longer able to represent individual artistes. However, we continue to collaborate closely with various individual artists in all our projects.

The overall philosophy of Musica Vivendi is to give new life to the performance of classical music, in order to reach and inspire a wide audience.
