KLOSTERS MUSIC 30 JULY – 7 AUGUST 2022
In its fourth edition, Klosters Music celebrates the 800th anniversary of the founding of Klosters with a journey through time with concerts from the early Re- naissance to the present day. At the opening concert, the Munich Chamber Orchestra and Swiss Pianist, Francesco Piemontesi, conducted by Pablo Heras- Casado will take you back to the Romantic era with Mendelssohns’s “Italian Symphony” and Schumann’s Piano Concerto. The following evening, the interna- tionally renowned Freiburger Barockorchester – a guest in Klosters for the first time, – awaits you with masterpieces from the Baroque and early Classical periods. On Swiss National Day the ensemble Philhar- monix – The Vienna Berlin Music Club will entertain with a refreshing mix of classical, jazz, folk and pop. During the week, the flautist Maurice Steger and the Spanish soprano Nuria Rial will take the audience on a journey to the Middle Ages and thus to the founding era of Klosters in the Church of St. Jakob.
The second weekend of Klosters Music begins with a special event. In the 20th century, Klosters was also known as “Hollywood on the Rocks”. Inspired by great film stars of the day, the musical “Singing in the Rain” with Gene Kelly will be shown on the big screen on Friday, 5 August, again with live orchestral music by the City Light Symphony Orchestra. This will be followed on Saturday by the outstanding orchestral concert with the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg conducted by Riccardo Minasi with the overture from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by Mendelssohn, Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 and the violin concerto by Brahms with Arabella Steinbacher. The crowning finale of the 2022 concert series will be the piano recital with Sir András Schiff on Sunday, 7 August.
