Britain is currently experiencing a burst of interest in German culture. In London alone, several exhibitions featuring German artists have recently opened, including one on Dresden-born painter Gerhard Richter. Saxony has been quick to take advantage of this wave of enthusiasm and top it off with an exclusive event. Cellist Jan Vogler - a prominent and well-respected ambassador for the music of Saxony - agreed to put on an extraordinary spontaneous concert at the Victoria and Albert Museum on 29 October. Under the slogan "Simply Saxony", the virtuoso gave a very special musical performance, playing a selection of pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach amid the museum's exhibits. The surprise concert was an unforgettably moving and typically Saxon experience for visitors to the prestigious ! museum, which dates back to 1851.

As part of his visit to London, Jan Vogler also participated in a chamber music concert that evening at the German House.

Jan Vogler is an ideal ambassador for the "Simply Saxony" campaign. His appearances as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic have brought him international acclaim. As artistic director of the Dresden Music Festival and the Moritzburg Festival, he has made - and continues to make - an important contribution to promoting Saxony as a prime location for classical music enthusiasts from all over the world.

The background to "Simply Saxony." 

A promotional campaign for Saxony with the slogan "Simply Saxony" has been running since autumn 2014. The campaign focuses on the strengths of the Free State: its breathtaking landscape, world-famous sights and broad cultural offering. "Simply Saxony." also highlights Saxony as a leading location for business and science, and emphasises the typical Saxon traits of enthusiasm for innovation and investment, creativity, inventiveness, a down-to-earth attitude and strong commitment to family-friendly practices.
