Klosters, still David Whelton’s artistic home
It is with great pleasure that we can tell you that Klosters Music has secured the services of its artistic director, David Whelton, for a further two years. Himself an organist and pianist, Whelton was for some 30 years the director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and has been awarded many honours for his work in Great Britain. In the course of his impressive career, during which he has worked with world-renowned conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Valery Gergiev, Andris Nelsons, Paavo Järvi and many others, David Whelton has built up an irreplaceable global network on the classical music-making scene. As well as these personal contacts, Whelton has an immense musical expertise and an infallible instinct for putting together high-quality, exciting, sensitive and creative programmes. The decision to continue our musical journey with David Whelton means that Klosters Music can in the coming years continue to look forward to programmes and performances of unrivalled international quality. “His whole personality, his knowledge, his creativity and his vital international network are a significant cornerstone in the continued development and success of Klosters Music. David Whelton is an absolute godsend, not only for Klosters Music, but for the whole region”, says Heinz Brand, President of the Foundation Art & Music, Klosters.
