The Arenberg Foundation & Music

Every year in February the Lauenen Chamber Concerts celebrate music for music's sake in the beautiful snowy mountain chapel of Lauenen, since the first concert in 2003. Artistic director and co-founder is Maestro Joji Hattori. The Arenberg Foundation is one of the sponsors.

The Arenberg family has a history of music mecenate, as the discovery of forgotten Vivaldi sheet music in the Arenberg Archives in Enghien testifies.
