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:
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
the foodies amongst us.
It is a special summer season for the
festival as it marks it’s
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
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.
had gathered his musical friends around
him for 10 days of exquisite chamber music -
amongst them HELLO STAGErs
on his own and with
the Kelemen Quartet
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!
