The Leipziger Auwald is one of the largest areas of natural riparian forest in Europe; however, as with almost all all areas of natural beauty it is being threatened by the ever increasing demands of our modern, civilised, world.
In order to raise money to help support efforts aimed at preserving and maintaining the Auwald, the Verein Naturschutz und Kunst Leipziger Auwald e. V. is organising a series of classic concerts: But not just any old concerts.
On January 26th 2012 the Grassi Museum for Musical Instruments will host the first so called Klassische Kartoffel Konzerte – a classical music concert, followed by a potato based meal.
Performed by the Leipziger Barock Consort the concert part of the evening will feature works by Georg Philipp Telemann, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Arcangelo Corelli, Gregor Joseph Werner and Georg Friedrich Händel.
We can’t confirm what form of potato will feature in the culinary part of the evening.
Tickets cost Euro 15,00 and all proceeds will go towards financing and supporting projects aimed at preserving and maintaining the Leipziger Auwald.
