    On April 21st 1983 Dr. Günter Bendorf and some like-minded people founded the “Freundeskreis Haus Marteau” (friends of Haus Marteau). Bendorf was its first chairman until his death in 1995. The purpose of the “Freundeskreis Haus Marteau” is to give moral support and financial aid to Haus Marteau for its endeavours in the musical education and the enrichment of the Upper Franconian cultural life. Thus the “Freundeskreis Haus Marteau” particularly supports young, talented and financially weaker artists who participate in the master classes.

    On the occasion of Henri Marteau’s 125 th birthday the “Freundeskreis Haus Marteau” decided to establish an “International Henri Marteau violin competition” for young violinists to support young musicians and – in the spirit of the great violinist – to promote understanding between nations and to introduce the unique music retreat “Haus Marteau” to the world.

    The violin competition, which was to take place every three years, was a great success in 2002. After the second, again very successful “International Henri Marteau violin competition” in 2005, the ‚Freundeskreis’ passed the responsibility for the competition on to the Upper Franconian District and the ‚Hofer Symphoniker’, who will host the competition in 2008. The ‘Freundeskreis’ will continue to support the violin competition as far as its resources allow.

    In order to meet its goals, the “Freundeskreis Haus Marteau” has to rely on many members (currently about 300) and sponsors who support its efforts in maintaining the great violinist’s heritage. It would be much appreciated if you were able to help support the work of the ‘Freundeskreis Henri Marteau’ by becoming a member.
