A particularly atmospheric Sunday afternoon can be experienced by lovers of classical music from 7 April every month at the Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt. Because then the new event series "Kempinski Concertini" will start at 3:30 pm, where young up-and-coming musicians will present themselves in a very special atmosphere. In the British-elegant ambience of the K-Lounge, selected soloists from Frankfurt's music academies will give an exclusive concert of about 30 minutes every month. Guests enjoy a classical tea time with the music. The first Concertino will be given by 20-year-old violinist Stella Marie Homberg, who studies at Dr. Hoch's Conservatory - and will play publicly for the first time at the Kempinski Hotel Frankfurt on a violin dating back to 1749.
"Concerts on a small scale are an intense experience that we want to make a tradition at our hotel," explains hotel director Karina Ansos. "The country club atmosphere of the K Lounge is an ideal setting for this." Stella Marie Homberg, born in Radebeul in 1999, has been playing the violin since she was in kindergarten and won the Jugend musiziert competition when she was ten. Since 2015 she has been studying at Dr. Hoch's Conservatory in Pre-College Frankfurt (PCF) in the class of Yvonne Smeulers. The Deutsche Stiftung Musikleben recently provided her with a master violin by Carlo Ferdinando Landolfi, which the Italian violin and cello maker crafted in 1749.
The Concertino in the K Lounge will be Homberg's first time playing this violone in public. The following pieces will be heard: Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita III in E major, 1st Preludio; Johannes Brahms' 3rd Scherzo in C minor from the F.A.E. Sonata; Fritz Kreisler's "Liebesleid" and Pablo de Sarasate's "Zigeunerweisen," Op. 20.
Concertino and Tea Time are EUR 39 per person. Tea Time includes selected teas, sandwiches, scones, tea cakes and a glass of champagne. Reservations can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 069 389 88 676.
Other dates for Kempinski Concertini are May 5 and June 2.
