Concert Location
Castle Concerts · Centuries of Romance


astles and palaces have always inspired our imagination. They were and still are places of flourishing music culture, because they stimulate noble thoughts and deep feelings. Their tales and legends open our hearts and minds for romance in any sense. Standing in a castle one realises that romantisism embraces much more than the period so named. The works from different centuries and from multiple musical genres presented in our Castle Concerts series testify to this with the incomparable spirit of their interpretation. In this production we show you how to celebrate a romantic Christmas with lively swing music.

Series & Edition


ublishing Authentic Classical Concerts entails for us capturing and recording outstanding performances and concerts for posterity. The performers, audience, opus and room enter into an intimate dialogue that in its form and expression, its atmosphere, is unique and unrepeatable. It is our aim, the philosophy of our house, to enable the listener to acutely experience every facet of this symbiosis, the intensity of the performance, so we record the concerts in direct 2-Track Stereo digital HD. The results are unparalleled interpretations of musical and literary works, simply - audiophile snapshots of permanent value. Flourishing culture, enthralling the audience and last but not least also you the listener, are the values we endeavor to document in our editions and series.

Music that is new, pieces worth listening to and well worth conserving, little treasures from the traditional and the avantgarde - music that is unimaginable anywhere else but in the hotbed of Europe - we capture these in our Castle Concerts Series of recordings in their original settings in cooperation with Volker Northoff.
