Great success for Klosters Music

From July 31 to August 8, Klosters Music took place for the third time under the motto “Heimat. My Homeland”. The audience experienced an exciting and energetic journey into the fascinating and rich world of Bohemian music from the 18th and 19th centuries. The interpreters of the eight concerts gave the more than 3,000 listeners in front of an almost sold-out audience unforgettable and unique musical moments.

The planning and performance of Klosters Music was again associated with high risks this year due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, the audience and organizers were rewarded with musical delights and a smooth running of the events. This summer, the concert series has once again proven to be a qualitative highlight in the Swiss classical music season as well as an equally great enrichment for the destination of Klosters. Within the framework of the attractive programming of the artistic director David Whelton, former director of the London Philharmonia Orchestra, a true firework of music history was ignited. The international stars Sir András Schiff (piano), Christian Tetzlaff (violin), Steven Isserlis (cello), Hanno Müller-Brachmann (bass-baritone) and the sopranos Giulia Semenzato and Julie Fuchs allowed an enthusiastic audience to participate in the top-class musical performances with tangible immediacy and intensity. In addition to numerous solo performances, ensembles and smaller orchestral works, large-scale symphonies by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Antonín Dvořák and Johannes Brahms also made their appearance.
