On Monday April 13 at 5pm CET, Bernhard Fleischer Moving Images will broadcast live from Villa Seligmann in Hanover, Germany
Tickets for the online concert with Elisabeth Kufferath and Kiveli Dörken are sold for 25 euros and help to secure musicians’ fees
“Our new streaming channel QCHAMBERSTREAM.COM allows select soloists to perform live for an audience and for interested viewers to experience top quality concerts. In order to generate fees for the musicians, tickets for the live concert experience are sold at a price of EUR 25. I truly believe in a revival of chamber music and, together with our partners, we are already thinking about how to expand the format internationally. Given that we run an office in New York in addition to the one Hanover, it seems logical to continue there.” – Tanja Dorn, leading artist manager and founder of global artist management and production agency Dorn Music.
“Both the musical and the audiovisual quality enhance the viewer’s experience and subsequently, their willingness to remain with the stream. We work with the artists to simultaneously promulgate their music and create income opportunities.” – Bernhard Fleischer, leading producer of concert broadcasts.
Tickets are EUR 25 each at https://www.qchamberstream.com and allow the viewer to experience the concert once, either live on April 13 at 5pm CET or as catch-up on the streaming channel within the week after.

Elisabeth Kufferath on the program
“For us musicians, music is the language of our souls. I am looking forward to playing next Monday with Kiveli Dörken, wonderful musician and a dear friend, and hope that many people will accept the online concert offer. I will donate my fee to musicians who are currently in economic difficulties. The program opens with the passionate sonata in F Minor by the very young Mendelssohn, then follows a series of my favorite pieces, all of which have their very own language: the Violin Sequence by Berio, which begins in wild turmoil and in a large musical arc finds a delicate, conciliatory end. Further some miniatures by Kurtág, which seem to harbor a whole world in every note, and Bloch’s first solo suite, rich in romantic harmonies and rhapsodic gestures. The program ends with a sonata in the dark, tragic key of F Minor, a late work by Johannes Brahms, in which the mood evolves from deep darkness to radiant light. A hopeful finale.”
“These times are both unprecedented and unpredictable. We are forced to completely rethink our habits. Simultaneously, there is a completely new awareness of how important music is to us as human beings — to the listener, but just as much to the performing musician. The opportunity to be in direct contact with an audience despite social distancing measures is invaluable. I am very grateful for this, and very happy to be performing for you on Monday evening with Elisabeth Kufferath.”
“As House of Jewish Music and Culture, the Villa Seligmann stands more than ever for open encounters, enriching connections, high-end performances and outstanding quality. In creative collaboration with our partners, we will be the venue for a new concert experience and will keep pace with a time that will increasingly be shaped by change.” – Eliah Sakakushev-von Bismarck, Director of Villa Seligmann.
