Silke & Joachim Kunath
In 2017, the Becker couple handed over the overall economic responsibility for the festival to Silke and Joachim Kunath. For many decades, the two have cultivated an internationally widespread and multi-layered network in the music world. Among other things, they initiated the internet radio station recorder-radio.com and the community blockfloete.eu.
As the daughter of Gerhard Voss (Melos Quartet Stuttgart), Silke Kunath gained an early insight into the organisation of international festivals and concert events. Today she runs Blockfloetenshop.de, one of the largest specialist shops for everything to do with the recorder.
Through the training events she organises, close friendships with artists and ensembles have developed in some cases.
Joachim Kunath is a master woodwind instrument maker. He is the founder of the company Kunath Instrumentenbau. In the meantime, the instruments of the brands Paetzold by Kunath and FEHR Blockflötenbau are also made and further developed in the Fulda workshop.
