Patron of The Rudolf Kempe Society

I am very flattered and delighted to be Patron of the Rudolf Kempe Society as successor to the late Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. I admire Cordula Kempe so much and think the work that she does is tremendous.

Do come to her wonderful programmes of word and music, Songs of Apollo - in which I have taken part myself and thoroughly enjoyed! And don’t miss the concerts given by the extremely talented musicians of the Rudolf Kempe International Young Artists Platform!

Also given at the uniquely congenial atmosphere of the KEMPE STUDIO at THE MUSES in Stratford, the Society's new series of creative and inspiring Public Master Classes awaits you, with an international line-up of great artists of today teaching the great artists of tomorrow!

You can get actively involved with our work in many ways. You can actually book our programmes for your own functions, public or private, in venues of your choice. Not only is the repertoire of great variety, it is expansive in presentation and can range from three musicians to chamber orchestra, and from two to four or five actors. Most programmes are adaptable to be given in venues ranging from salons to concert halls and from factories to churches.

You can even commission an individually tailored programme.

Performance fees depend on the size of cast, and are negotiable for charitable institutions.

For more detailed information please don’t hesitate to contact us.

We would be delighted to welcome you as Friends of the Society, especially at our own unique venue, the new KEMPE STUDIO AT THE MUSES at our UK base in Stratford-upon-Avon. It is situated between the RSC theatres, overlooking the park and the river, and has a very private, beautiful terraced garden.

Our series of intimate recitals, poetry readings and workshops as well as - British summers permitting – delightful garden concerts await you!
