Welcome to La Principessa 2016
Early Music Festival from May to September in Kassel and Hofgeismar
During the period between 1550 and 1630 Kassel was one of the important musical centres of Europe. Musicians from other European countries visited the city which was then the capital of Hesse-Kassel; the court orchestra of the landgraviate was regarded as one of the leading ensembles of the day. A unique collection of musical scores accrued during this period and has survived until the present day.
