Co-sponsors from the region are supporting the Rheingau Music Festival
The Prince von Metternich Sekt Winery, the Hessian-Thuringian State Bank (Helaba) in conjunction with the Hessian-Thuringian Savings Bank Cultural Foundation and Adam Opel AG, are supporting the Rheingau Music Festi- val as co-sponsors.
Oestrich-Winkel, 27 January 2011 – Musical highlights performed by international virtuosi combine with the aesthetic charm of the Rheingau to create the distinc- tive profile of the Rheingau Music Festival, which meanwhile ranks among Europe’s major showcases for classical music. Organising 153 glittering events at 43 different venues would be inconceivable without the immensely welcome sup- port of the sponsors. This year, too, companies from the region will be proactively involved in funding one of the year’s cultural highlights.
The Prince von Metternich Sekt Winery from Johannisberg in the Rheingau has enjoyed close ties with the Rheingau Music Festival ever since it was inaugu- rated back in 1987. Both share primarily a fondness for sophisticated pleasures and the finer things in life. There is hardly anything better than exhilarating music and some exhilarating Riesling sekt – enjoyed against the backdrop of the Rheingau, the cradle of exquisite wines and since 1816 the residence of the Princes von Metternich. The Prince von Metternich Sekt Winery is proud to have been for 24 years a host to one of Europe’s best-known and prestigious music festivals, and to be able this year, too, to help organise exquisite cultural events for discerning audiences. Almost a third of the concerts will be held at Johannis- berg Palace, the former residence of the co-founder and long-serving Chairper- son of the RMF’s Board of Trustees, Tatiana Princess of Metternich-Winneburg, who died in 2006. This year, too, crowds of visitors will be enjoying the summer party, which ranks among the festival’s acknowledged highlights, against the pic- turesque backdrop of the palace, one of the most beautiful settings in the Rhein- gau. So we can all look forward to the Rheingau Music Festival’s 2011 season.
