With Sir András Schiff, Maurice Steger, Steven Isserlis and the ‘Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen’, renowned artists will be performing in Klosters this summer. In addition, Klosters Music presents new formats: ‘Form & Klang’ and a jazz concert at the Madrisa-Alp.
"I am delighted to once again be able to present versatile concert events at the highest level in Klosters," says artistic director David Whelton. And rightly so: two ‘Bach Discovery Days’ will give visitors an insight into the musical work of Johann Sebastian Bach. Violinist Christian Tetzlaff interprets the second and third sonatas as well as the Partita in D minor with the famous Chaconne, which Menuhin has described as ‘the greatest structure ever created for violin’. And as a highlight Sir András Schiff performs the solo recital called ‘Das Wohltemperierten Klavier, Band 1’.
Jewels of Baroque Music
Further jewels of baroque music are in the centre of the Klosters Summer Concerts. The charismatic Swiss recorder player Maurice Steger presents his new album ‘Mr Handel's Dinner’, which he recorded with the La Cetra Barockorchester Basel. The second weekend will be dedicated to classical orchestral works such as Mozart's Jupiter Symphony, Haydn's Piano Concerto No. 11 or Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen with Kit Armstrong, piano and Christian Tetzlaff, violin.
Premiere: ‘Form & Sound’
With the new format ‘Form & Klang’ Christian Bolt and the Austrian composer Wolfgang-Michael Bauer will give an insight into the creative process of a work on 27 July 2019. Three Swiss premieres and a world premiere of works by Wolfgang-Michael Bauer will be performed. The programme also promises concert experiences at the highest level: the Modigliani Quartet, the Janoska Ensemble, the Azahar Ensemble, I Barocchisti with DiegoFasolis, Adam Laloum, Connie Shih and Benjamin Righetti will perform from the end of July to the beginning of August in Prättigau.
Jazz on Madrisa, folk music in the festival tent
Another premiere: South African jazz trumpeter Ian Smith and his band Virtual Jazz Reality will be guesting at an open-air concert on the lake stage on the Madrisa-Alp on 28 July 2019. The festival tent on the Bahnhofplatz in Klosters also offers a platform for musical creation and the musical tradition of Graubünden for three days. Artists from the fields of classical music, jazz and folk music perform here - admission is free.
