25. Moritzburg Festival in August (May 2017)
From 5 – 20 August 2017 the 25. Moritzburg Festival will take place.
Under the artistic direction of cellist Jan Vogler, the festival has established itself as one of the world’s leading chamber music festivals.
Every August, internationally renowned soloists and outstanding young artists from all over the world meet in idyllic Moritzburg near Dresden. Together they work on new interpretations of chamber music works and present them in dynamic, flexible formations.
On 5 August the opening concert will take place in Volkswagen’s “Die Gläserne Manufaktur” in Dresden, presented by the Moritzburg Festival Orchestra conducted by Josep Caballé Domenech. Violinist Mira Wang and violist Ruth Killius will play Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante E flat major KV 364.
Well-known musicians such as violinists Arabella Steinbacher, Ning Feng and Baiba Skride, violist Lawrence Power and pianist Lise de la Salle will follow the invitation to the Saxon idyll.
Composer-in-residence in 2017 will be Sven Helbig.
