About Klosters Music
Klosters Music takes place this summer from 26 July to 4 August 2019 at various venues in Klosters. Maurice Steger, Steven Isserlis, Christian Tetzlaff and The German Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra of Bremen have accepted invitations to Klosters once again and can be heard with Baroque works through to compositions by Thomas Adès. A particular highlight could be said to be the monumental recital by Sir András Schiff of the “Well-tempered Clavier, Volume 1” by Johann Sebastian Bach. What’s more, Klosters Music is welcoming other artists such as the Modigliani Quartet, Kit Armstrong, the Janoska Ensemble, the Azahar Ensemble, I Barocchisti and Diego Fasolis. In the new format “Form & Sound”, Swiss painter Christian Bolt and Austrian composer Wolfgang-Michael Bauer talk about the interconnectedness of painting, sculpture and music.
Art & Music, Klosters Foundation
The organiser of Klosters Music is the Art & Music, Klosters Foundation. The creation of the Foundation and the Patrons’ Association of the same name in Spring 2019 have created a professional and sustainable basis for developing a cultural offering of the highest standard and with great charisma. In future the Foundation will strengthen and broaden different styles and formats in the fields of art and music in Klosters, in Prättigau and beyond.
Various personalities from Klosters and those with a close relationship to Klosters collaborate as volunteers and with great commitment on the Foundation’s board. The purpose of the newly formed Foundation is as follows (extract from the Charter):
«The aim of the Foundation is to hold concerts, festivals, exhibitions, readings and other cultural events in Klosters or its environs. In this context, there can also be contributions to the training and encouragement of artists, musicians and authors, particularly of as yet unknown performers and creators, with no geographical restrictions. The Foundation can furthermore support all types of projects and programmes that further this purpose.
Any profit realised from the pursuit of the charitable purpose (proceeds of concerts and other events) is used exclusively for the pursuit of this purpose and the perpetuation of the Foundation. The Foundation exclusively pursues charitable purposes and is set up altruistically and not for any gainful activity. It fulfils its purpose charitably and is not profit-oriented.»
The Art & Music, Klosters Foundation and the Patrons’ Association of the same name have been tax-exempt since 17 April 2019 by decision of the Canton of Grisons tax administration.
