Love Tree Sharing Heritage Ensemble

Eleven excellent musicians form all over Europe invite to a unique concert with surprising sounds of European folk music.  Singer Helene Blum and violinist Harald Haugaard, two of the most famous Danish musicians, are ambassadors for the European Year of Cultural Heritage and founded the Love Tree Ensemble upon initiative of SHARING HERITAGE. The participating artists stand for a diverse mix of traditions – ranging from Finland’s Karelia to Northern Ireland, the High Tatra and the Alps as well as sounds from Sicily and Portugal.

 

The Cultural Heritage Music Gallery:

In celebration of the European Cultural Heritage Summit 2018, Dutch, German, Irish and Luxembourgish members of the European Union Youth Orchestra (EUYO) perform compositions from Austria, Germany and Russia in four rooms of Berlin’s Neues Museum. Bringing together the intangible sounds of iconic classical music and the very tangible spaces and exhibits of the Neues Museum’s justly world famous classical collection, the EUYO’s Music Gallery project comes to Berlin for the first time as part of 2018, European Year of Cultural Heritage and a partnership with Europa Nostra.
