Thanks a lot for your help!

I originally defined the variable in the customize interface, but it seems that I entered the wrong characters...
If I copy your code in the scratch buffer and evaluate it, it works and the agenda is formatted as defined. :-)

Why Do I need to type '?A' for priority 'A' ?

A little remark: the bold face has to be entered without double quotes:
':weight "bold"' has no effect, but ':weight bold' works well.

(setq org-priority-faces '((?A . (:foreground "red" :weight bold))
(?B . (:foreground "yellow"))
(?C . (:foreground "green"))))

This syntax is quite confusing for me
- is there a tutorial anywhere which explains how to do such customizations
- and what wildcards can/have to be used
- and what "car" and "cdr" and "cons" mean?

Kind regards

You should probably use customize to set the value. Setting it by hand
is possible (but not advisable) in this case, but you have to pay
attention to some details. The docstring of the variable says

| This is a list of cons cells, with priority character in the car
| and faces in the cdr. The face can be a symbol, a color as
| as a string, or a property list of attributes, like
| (:foreground "blue" :weight bold :underline t).

so you need to set it with something like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq org-priority-faces '((?A . (:foreground "red" :weight "bold"))
(?B . (:foreground "yellow"))
(?C . (:foreground "green"))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
