Reichersbeuern. Music festival "Clavis" in Bavaria

International Music Festival 2017 "Clavis"

Bavaria is considered the most beautiful federal state in Germany. The mountains of Bavaria inspired many great artists such as Richard Wagner, Carl Orf, Richard Strauss, Thomas Mann, Franz Marc, Albrecht Dürer, Ludwig Thoma; even the last Pope, Benedictus the 16th, was from Bavaria. The close border with Austria and Italy puts Bavaria very close to world cultural history.

Reichersbeuern is the home of the music school "Napamarum". This is a smallish town with about 3,500 inhabitants, but with a train connection to Munich, its own football, ice hockey, fencing and riding clubs. Reichersbeuern is not culturally poor: the male voice choir Liedertafel, the theater and drama group and the traditional costume associations which populate the cultural landscape.

Church music is represented by the church choir and orchestra. Reichersbeuern has its own 1000-year-old castle where the majority of the festival "Clavis" will take place.

Schloss Reichersbeuern is the Max Rill private secondary school. The castle is owned by the noble family von Sigritz.

Max Rill Gymnasium in Reichersbeuern / International Music Festival 2017 "Clavis"

The school is situated on spacious terrain in countryside at the edge of Reichersbeuern. The Gymnasium increasingly attracts young people from abroad, who spend their lives here at the boarding school and prepare for university entrance qualification. With over 20 nationalities and cultures represented by our students (e.g. Brazil, China, Denmark, England, France, Italy, Croatia, Morocco, Nepal, Poland, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine), common intercultural learning is self-evident.
The Max Rill School is one of the smallest secondary and boarding schools in Bavaria and in Germany. It has very generously opened its doors for the festival, as the school also has musical and aesthetic departments. In addition to one large and several smaller concert halls, the school has practice and warm-up rooms with grand pianos from Bösendorfer, Blüther and other German high-quality instruments. In the building you can still feel the spirit of 1000 years of history. Participants, passive and active will surely be musically inspired and enjoy the landscapes!

The beginning of the festival, master classes and some seminars, as well as the first round of the piano competition, will take place in these old walls. Age group D, the gala concert and award ceremony will take place in another old castle Hohenburg in Lenggries on Sunday, April 2nd. We are looking forward to abundant registrations and believe that this weekend will for all, whether passive or active participant, be a great experience!

Lenggries. Piano Festival "Clavis" in Bavaria

In Bavaria at the foot of the Alps and on the border with Austria lies the town of Lenggries, where the "Clavis Bavaria 2017" festival takes place from the 31st of March to the 2nd of April.

All interested parties can register here for the Piano Festival "Clavis Bavaria 2017".

Lenggries is, after Bad Tölz, the main town of the Isarwinkel and the largest rural municipality in Bavaria. The world famous Brauneck cable car welcomes guests with a panoramic restaurant and one of the best ski areas.
The most important sights are the Baroque castle of Hohenburg, built in 1718, and the ruins of the old Burg Hohenburg, which can be found on a wooded hill, about 300 meters above the castle.

The castle, which is not open to the public, is home to a girls' secondary school and a girls' junior high school. In the old castle the ramparts, the keep and the well shaft are preserved.
The "Mädchengymnasium Hohenburg" with its musical classes extends a very warm welcome to the "Clavis Bavaria 2017" piano festival, providing the rooms and auditorium for seminars, masterclasses and international piano competitions. The school has a chapel with a small organ and a beautiful courtyard where the participants of the festival will doubtless feel comfortable. The opening of the festival takes place in a Baroque church. Here the audience can at once admire three keyboard instruments.

Jurors from the piano competition, themselves renowned pianists from Europe, Asia and Russia will also take part in the Gala Concert at 7 p.m. on the 2nd of April.
