Kirchklang (Church Sound) Festival 2022
The high-quality music festival in the scenic and historically influenced cultural area in the heart of Austria is unique with its focus on the entire region and its intensive dialogue with it. Let yourself be seduced around the deepest lakes of our country and immerse yourself in music - in the most beautiful places of a region that, from early on attracted numerous composers, inspired them with its spectacular mountain panoramas and quiet lakes and to this day has lost none of its fascination.
We look forward to your concert visit and invite you this time to a musical listening pleasure with the following artists:
Mozart Festival Wolfgangsee - The Magic Flute - Opera and Mystery
The immense success of The Magic Flute led to countless adaptations, with those for Harmoniemusik, popular in Austria, being particularly successful. Georg Druschetzky, military bandmaster and "appointed regional timpanist" of the province of Upper Austria, arranged the opera for wind instruments in a sophisticated way.
In a highly acclaimed book, Jan Assmann has convincingly decoded the diverse messages of the opera. His lecture takes us into the realm of the nocturnal queen, describes trials and the great mysteries and deals with place and time, unity and multiplicity of opera.
