To hear and expe­ri­ence sophisti­ca­ted cul­tu­re in Ger­man here on the Cos­ta Blan­ca was the wish of many resi­dents and guests. After all, the­re is not­hing on offer here. Clas­si­cal music, but also theat­re and caba­ret were on the wish list.

This was the impe­tus for the first sum­mer sere­na­de in the clois­ter of the Ermi­ta las Rotas in Dénia in 2003.

From the begin­ning the­re was a clo­se col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with Pro­fes­sor Vicen­te Giner, espe­ci­al­ly at his organ fes­ti­val Ped­re­guer. His organ stu­dies in Aus­tria not only brought him clo­ser to the Ger­man lan­guage, but also to our cul­tu­ral understanding.

His organ con­cer­tos, for exam­p­le, fea­ture important com­po­sers such as Bach, Han­del, Haydn, Mozart, Soler and Vival­di, making them par­ti­cu­lar­ly fami­li­ar and sought-after for our ears. This coope­ra­ti­on and the gre­at popu­la­ri­ty resul­ted in fur­ther cont­acts, which rea­ched a spe­cial cli­max with the New Year’s con­certs. Big-name artists always enjoy coming to Dénia. For exam­p­le the gre­at con­duc­tor and lea­der of the Rus­si­an Cham­ber Phil­har­mo­nic Orches­tra St. Peters­burg Juri Gil­bo, or G. Feid­mann, M. Gershwin, R. Kol­lo, G. Emmer­lich, B. Cramm, M. Schlu­b­eck… and many more.

In Decem­ber 2004, the asso­cia­ti­on was offi­ci­al­ly ente­red in the regis­ter of associations.

Ger­man-lan­guage per­for­man­ces, such as con­certs, theat­re, caba­ret, all at a high level – and all on your door­step: That’s what the Kon­zert­freun­de offer you!

We want to con­ti­nue on this path: for the bene­fit and enjoy­ment of the Ger­man-spea­king resi­dents and guests living here.

About us

The task and aim of the regis­tered asso­cia­ti­on Kon­zert­freun­deis to offer music and theat­re cul­tu­re from Ger­man-spea­king count­ries to resi­dents and guests living here on the Cos­ta Blanca.

We the­r­e­fo­re orga­ni­se con­certs on our own, but also sup­port other artists and cul­tu­ral repre­sen­ta­ti­ves in the regi­on. We want to offer the many clubs repre­sen­ted here a com­ple­men­ta­ry cul­tu­ral plat­form that the clubs alo­ne can­not or do not want to take on to this extent.

For the sel­ec­tion of the per­for­man­ces, your wis­hes are just as important to us as the qua­li­ty and ori­gi­na­li­ty of the per­for­mers. We put a lot of ide­as, cont­acts and our full ener­gy into plea­sing and enri­ching the con­cert fri­ends here on the Cos­ta Blanca.

All mem­bers of the asso­cia­ti­on, as well as the board, work on a vol­un­t­a­ry basis. The cos­ts for the events such as fees, tra­vel and accom­mo­da­ti­on cos­ts are cover­ed by ticket sales.

To keep the per­for­man­ces afforda­ble, we are gra­teful for patrons and sponsors.

Our aim is to finan­ce the events in a self-sup­port­ing way, i.e. wit­hout public subsidies.
