Renowned conductor, performers, support Bratislava “music house”

BRATISLAVA has historically been a town/city with a rich musical life. One of the venues connected with music – and also social life – is the house of the famous Albrecht family, renowned musicians.

The house in the core of historical Bratislava has been dilapidating for some time already; and the initiative to save it came just shortly before the damage became irreversible. The Albrecht Fórum civic association strives to collect money, apart from state grants, not just to stop the decay but to breathe new life into the picturesque building.

Part of the wider effort is also a concert on May 14 which will offer not only works of composers somehow connected with the Slovak capital (Haydn, Mozart, Ján Levoslav Bella, Ernö Dohnány and Alexander Albrecht), but also some of the famous solo performers – piano virtuoso Marián Lapšanský, soprano Simona Houda-Šaturová and British/US conductor James Judd – with the Slovak Philharmonics.

All proceeds from the concert (taking place in the Reduta building of SF in Bratislava on May 14 at 19:00) go for the renewal of the Albrecht House. Tickets cost €35 and can be purchased via Albrecht Forum, Na Vŕšku 1 (weekdays 10:00-18:00); 02/5443-0998, 0908/709-895. Those who cannot attend the concert can donate via 2925894965/1100 (IBAN SK5711000000002925894965). More information can be found at www.albrechtforum.eu.
