The young German pianist Alexander Krichel will be giving a Beethoven and Liszt recital this Saturday in the car park at the drive-in cinema at Iserlohn on the Seilersee, matching his music to the sunset over the lake.

Tickets are 32 Euros per vehicle, with maximum two people in each car plus children.

Bring your own popcorn.

Public toilets are avalable, it says.

    Waste of time. Should be rescheduled to 2026 after vaccine is found. The cars are known to be very contagious and car wipers are known to be super spreaders.

    Good that I have my record collection because no one plays piano today as good as mickey mouse did in 1860.

    • Bruce says:

      At least the grumps are so preoccupied with complaining about how stupid it is to try to give any kind of performance at all, that they have forgotten to complain about how young performers can’t possibly have anything to offer.

  • Brian says:

    I hope the the people using the car park like classical music. It is not everybody’s
    Taste the same as country music

    • Bruce says:

      Since they are charging for tickets, I would guess that the audience will consist of people who wanted to come.

  • Nina says:

    It would interest me very much to know how many people (or how many automobiles) actually attended this event.

    • Saxon Broken says:

      I doubt very many can get close enough for something not applified for many to hear anything much.
