Fresh off the festival circuit in Germany: DW's picks of the season with host Rick Fulker.
There are those festivals that take place in the cities where the composers were born or worked and thus stake a special claim to authenticity: the Handel Festival in Halle, the Bach Festival in Leipzig and of course the Beethoven Festival in Bonn. Others capitalize on the beautiful surroundings or special atmosphere, like Heidelberg Spring and Tensions in Heimbach. But whatever the backdrop, the performances are all of electrifying artistry and the recordings of superb "made in Germany" quality. Rick Fulker loves nothing more than sharing the wealth, which includes the artists' own voices.
