|The International Fasch Society Zerbst
was founded in 1991. Its goals are twofold:
1) to research the lives of the Anhalt-Zerbst Kapellmeister Johann
Friedrich Fasch (1688—1758) and of his son Carl Friedrich
Christian Fasch (1736-1800), who was born in Zerbst and made a name for
himself in music history by founding the Singakademie zu Berlin; 2) to
popularize their neglected works by commissioning performing editions
and organizing music festivals. The International Fasch Society
contributes much to emphasize the importance of Central German Baroque
Music in an international context. The "Freundeskreis J. F. Fasch" and
later the "Arbeitskreis Johann Friedrich Fasch" in Zerbst and the
Musicological Institute at the Kloster Michaelstein (Blankenburg/Harz)
already promoted Fasch during the 1980s; the first Fasch Festival took
place in 1983.
We wish you reflective christmas holidays and you all the best in the New Year with these words.
The Twelfth International Fasch Festival ("Fasch and
Dresden") took place in Zerbst/Anhalt from 18-21 April 2013. Click
