The Lower Rhenish Music Festival was one of the most important festivals of classical music, which happened every year with few exceptions between 1818 and 1958 at Pentecost for 112 times. In the year 1817 Johann Schornstein, the musical director at Elberfeld, organized a music festival in his town, in which he was assisted by the musicians from D sseldorf under their conductor Friedrich August Burgm ller. During this festival the idea was born by Schornstein and Burgm ller to repeat this event every year alternately between their cities. In the year 1821 the musicians from Cologne and 1925 from Aachen participated, but with the performance 1827 the responsible persons of Elberfeld decided to stop their commitment, because the town was not up to manage the rush of musicians and guests. This festival continued up to 1958 and took place 112 times. Only during the period of the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states and the First and Second World War the meeting was interrupted.show more
