"Faith" was the motto of the 5th International Music Festival Hamburg, which would have take place from April 24 to May 25, 2020. Following its four forerunners in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2019, the music festival is thus once again setting course for an annual rhythm.
In the Elbphilharmonie, the Laeiszhalle and the Kampnagel, visitors can look forward to a varied programme with numerous concerts.
The International Music Festival 2020 has been opened by the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester. The figurehead of the music festival was the composer Sofia Gubaidulina. The composer confessed: "For me, composing is like a prayer". Her pieces contribute significantly to this year's motto "Faith".
