Stockhausen-Stiftung für Musik 51515 Kuerten

On November 14th 1994 the Stockhausen Foundation for Music was ratified as a non-profit foundation having as its purpose "the advancement of musicology including the stimulation of music culture based on the creative oeuvre of Professor Karlheinz Stockhausen" (paragraph 2.2 of the foundation statutes).

The Stockhausen Foundation for Music is in a position to fulfil this mandate due to the fact that the biographical and musical stations of the composer are documented in its archives by way of composition sketches, scores, recordings, instruments, costumes and requisites, photographs and films, and comprehensive written sources, and accessible to scientific research.

In addition, one of the responsibilities of the foundation is to continue the Stockhausen Concerts and Courses Kürten, which have taken place every summer since they were initiated by Stockhausen in 1998. The uniqueness of this event lies in its combination of concerts, master classes, composition seminars and scientific symposia aimed at a large, international audience. In order to be able to mediate Stockhausen’s music and art of interpretation, ideas, thoughts and observations in this way, the support of friends and patrons is needed.

Therefore, the Stockhausen Foundation for Music would like to ask you to make a contribution to help fulfil its mission, so that the Stockhausen Concerts and Courses Kürten, its most ambitious project to date, can be continued.

Due to the non-profit, cultural, and scientific nature of the foundation, donations are tax-deductible. Donors automatically receive receipts.

Thank you very much for your kind attention and support.
