Summer Festivals Part II

Who is where? Find out!

We continue our virtual journey through summer festivals to see where our members are performing this summer all around the globe looking at all sizes of festivals.

This is today’s pick:

Tanglewood - the summer home and academy of the Boston Symphony orchestra opened it’s doors since mid june. Concerts in their amazing venue looking out on the famous lawn are in full swing. I found this little gem on their website for the foodies amongst us.

It is a special summer season for the festival as it marks it’s 75th Anniversary, but it might even be more exiting for HELLO STAGEr Moritz Gnann. The Berlin based conductor will start his two-year term as assistant conductor to the Boston Symphony Orchestra there. He has previously also assisted their music director Andris Nelsons at the Bayreuth Festival when preparing for the new production of Lohengrin. During the Tanglewood time of the Boston Symphony Orchestra he will give his US debut conducting them at the festival.
But you can still also catch Moritz’s performances in Germany - he will be conducting Roméo et Juliette, Il Barbiere di Siviglia and the Magic Flute for multiple times at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin as well as make his debut at the Semperoper Dresden in the 15/16 Season.

From huge scale to small and intimate: the renown Lockenhaus Kammermusikfest just closed it’s doors with a concert In memoriam Josef Herowitsch, the wonderful co-founder of the festival and Priest of the Church which acts as main venue every year. Nicolas Altstaedt had gathered his musical friends around him for 10 days of exquisite chamber music - amongst them HELLO STAGErs Barnabas Kelemen on his own and with the Kelemen Quartet, Alexander Lonquich, Reto Bieri and Johannes Fischer to explore music in Volkston asking themselves how it can be defined in terms of origins, ethnicity and stylistic elements from the past until the present. I still wonder how they were able to choose from the huge variety of music so that they could get through it within only 10 days!
