About Klosters Music

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.

Reserve the dates for Klosters Music today: Saturday 30 July to 7 August 2022. Online ticket sales will start on 1 March 2022. Advance orders can be made in writing from December 2021 via the flyer.

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.»
