“klassik shorts” is a three-minute video format that presents information in an entertaining way. Presenter Maximilian Maier inspires the viewers with his own enthusiasm by telling subtle, anecdotal stories of the particular piece of music.
Director Michael Wende ("Der Taktstock") supports this pointed style of explaining classical music by primarily using his unique graphic representations and sound effects. With the help of all these elements, the "klassik shorts" intend to draw the viewer closer to the music and deepen his musical experience.
