November 2015

Kantor Dr. phil. Elisabeth Schmiedeke schenkte ihr Günter Raphael Privatarchiv an das Museum der Christine Raphael Stiftung in Berlin- Zehlendorf .

Sie schrieb eine Staatsarbeit und eine Dissertation über Günter Raphael. Siehe auch auf dieser Webseite unter Bibliographie.
1998 wanderte sie nach Norwegen aus. Hier nahm die Musikbücherei in Bergen gern ihre Doktorarbeit an, jedoch nicht weitere wichtige Quellen zu ihren Arbeiten, die nun Eigentum der Christine Raphael Stiftung sind. Darunter Drucke der Musik von Albert Becker und Arnold Mendelssohn und alle veröffentlichte, vergriffene und handschriftliche Chornoten Günter Raphaels. Interessant ist hierbei auch ihre Korrespondenz. Sie überliess ein detalliertes Werkverzeichnis in Katalogform.

After the musicologist and organist Mikhail Mishchenko’s first contact with the Foundation in March 2013 two of Günter Raphael’s works were performed for the first time in St. Petersburg.

Saturday March 1, 2014 at 7 pm in the Smolny Cathedral, St. Petersburg:

The program of this chamber music concert included works by Joh. Seb.Bach, Kjell M.Karlsen, Yngve Sköld, Gabriel Faure, Camille Saint-Saёns, Benno Ammann and:

Günter Raphael’s Sonata F-major, op. 68 and his
Sonata for cello and organ (without opus, composed in 1937)

The performers of this concert were:
Mikhail Mishchenko (organ)
Boris Barinov (viola)
Andrey Ivanov (cello)

The concert was very well attended. Chairman of the Foundation, Fredrik Pachla, decided at relatively short notice to combine his first trip to St. Petersburg with his attendance at the concert and was impressed.

Mikhail Mishchenko, who is Professor at the Conservatorium, gladly took the time to take his foreign visitor through the building and concert halls with its wonderful architecture, and which are rich in tradition. Along with his instrumental colleagues Mikhail Mishchenko would like to perform further works by Günter Raphael in the future.

The new premises for the Christine Raphael Foundation have been officially opened.

The official presentation of the Christine Raphael Foundation’s new premises took place at Bogenstr. 4, in Berlin-Zehlendorf on the 30th April 2013 at 6:30 pm.  The occasion also celebrated Günter Raphael’s upcoming 110th birthday. Amongst many other guests were his daughter, Dagmar Pieschacon- Raphael, whose family travelled from Madrid and Munich, four members of the composer Kurt Hessenberg’s family, guests from Switzerland and Meiningen, along with Professor Dr. Matthias Herrmann from Dresden, and several renowned artists and the representative for the district Steglitz-Zehlendorf Frau Richter-Kotowski.

They were informed by the chairman of the board Fredrik Pachla about the first years of the foundation and that the musical heritage from Albert Becker, Georg Raphael and Günter Raphael along with their very important cultural legacies have returned to Berlin.

A house concert with works by Günter Raphael subsequently took place at 8 PM.

Bernhard Hartog and Ilja Sekner played excerpts from the Dialogues Part I and II (from 1951 and 1957) for 2 Violins. The Duo Tatjana Blome/ Frank Lunte then performed the Récitatif and the Sonata opus 74 A for alto Saxophone and piano.

Günter Raphaels return to Berlin

The Christine Raphael Foundation shifted from Husum to Berlin in April 2012.
The new address can be found under the pages News / Kontakt and Foundation.

The Foundation's new house incorporates the extensive archives of Günter Raphael's estate and also the estates of his father Georg Raphael and his grandfather Albert Becker.
It is, as it were, a return of Raphael's to his birth place Berlin that was reinforced by moving his grave from Meiningen to Berlin. A family grave was purchased at the cemetery Onkel Tom Straße in Zehlendorf where Christine Raphael was reburied at the end of March and Günter und Pauline Raphael on the 5th of August.

The city of Meiningen, that generously provided a memorial grave at the Waldfriedhof from July 2005 onwards, repected the family's decision for the reburial in Berlin.
