Classical concerts 2017
We are pleased to invite classical music enthusiasts to a series of intimate, unique classical concerts with selected artists in 2016.
The artists have been elected in collaboration with Jens-Christian Wandt, who will personally introduce the artists before each concert.
The concerts will take place in our atmospheric Salon, which was originally the salon of the guests at Skodsborg Bathing Sanatorium. Tea and coffee was served in the salon after dinner, and guests were entertained daily by music, reading aloud and the like. Nowadays the salon is furnished with the original console mirrors and chandeliers from the palace of Countess Danner.
During the intermission we serve a glass of bubbly.
Trio Vitruvi has played together since 2013 and won the P2 Chamber Music Competition in 2014, where they by the jury was characterized as “an extravagant ensemble”.
