ZEITREISE. A MUSICAL JOURNEY
From July 30 to August 7, 2022, the first-class classical concert series Klosters Music will take place for the fourth time in Klosters. In line with the 800-year anniversary of Klosters, the program of nine concerts takes the audience on a fascinating journey through time and space. Works are performed from the Renaissance, the Baroque, the Classical and the Romantic periods. With the famous musical “Singin’ in the Rain”, Klosters Music recalls the golden era of “Hollywood on the Rocks”, while in Atelier Bolt there is an exciting encounter between music and literature.
After only three performances, Klosters Music has already developed into a small but fine hotspot of classical music with national and international appeal. Once again, the exclusive concert series, which has become indispensable as a cultural and tourism factor for the region, will offer a programme with a superb cast next summer: a reunion with well-known masters of their craft, such as the pianist Sir András Schiff and the conductor Pablo Heras-Casado, among others. For the first time, the Munich Chamber Orchestra, the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg conducted by Riccardo Minasi, the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, the Ensemble Philharmonix, and the Hagen Quartet, known as a great performer of chamber music, will be present. However, much can also be expected from the soloists: for example, soprano Nuria Rial, who specializes in Baroque music, will perform together with internationally acclaimed recorder player Maurice Steger, while the multi-award-winning violinist Arabella Steinbacher and the technically and musically skilled pianist Francesco Piemontesi will be heard playing the great soloist works by Brahms and Schumann and orchestra. With the musical “Singin’ in the rain”, Klosters Music evokes the glamour of “Hollywood on the Rocks”. The evening will take the audience back to those days when the star of the musical, Gene Kelly, danced on the tables of the hotel bar in the Chesa Grischuna. The Lucerne City Light Symphony Orchestra will play live music from the famous musical, which will be shown on the big screen. An exciting encounter between literature and music will be provided by the writer Alain Claude Sulzer and the pianist Oliver Schnyder, who will go in search of traces of Switzerland as a “pioneer in tourism” in Atelier Bolt.
