With the annual matinee, the Friends of Villa Seligmann e.V. thank its members for their support of the cultural work of Villa Seligmann.

The focus of the concert program is the great D major Sonata by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy op. 58. The slow movement of this sonata is often described as the most “Jewish” piece of music in the composer’s otherwise not necessarily “Jewish” oeuvre. The program is complemented by Ernest Bloch’s popular “Three Scenes from Jewish Life” (1924), which are often perceived as “Hasidic sound pictures”.

The event is aimed at members of the Freundeskreis.
