The Danish National Broadcasting Corporation, DR, has scheduled a number of Andersen-related Castle Concerts in 2005 with the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra and a cast of international stars. The premiere will be at Egeskov Castle, which will host a DR Castle Concert for the first time. All the concerts will be televised by DR.

"The Castle Concert series will celebrate its 10-year jubilee this year with concerts at Ledreborg Castle and Marselisborg Castle. We take pride in the fact that our cooperation with the H.C. Andersen 2005 Foundation now allows us to include Egeskov Castle in 2005. We look forward to celebrating Andersen with a wide, popular palette - and to visit Egeskov for the first time," says Orchestral leader of the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Kim Bohr-Christensen.
