Due to the current situation the concert is unfortunately cancelled. We hope that it can be made up at a later date.

We ask for your understanding!

Dear friends of music,

Knut Hanßen is no longer an unknown person in Bonn and it is a great pleasure for me that he is teaching in the music studio again!

On this occasion and simply because it is always nice to hear Knut Hanßen play a piano concert. On the program are two sonatas by Beethoven and one sonata by Franz Schubert.

Anyone who has attended one of our last concerts will already know that we take all security precautions to protect you and us! For this reason the number of available seats had to be reduced accordingly.

We also insist on wearing a facemask during the concert. There will be no break. The length of the concert is about 70 minutes. We kindly ask you to pay for the tickets in advance by bank transfer. You will receive the account information with the confirmation email. If you want to pay in cash, please have the appropriate sum with you.
