    Chamber Music Festival Bad Ischl


Chamber Music Festival Bad Ischl 2017 "KLANG"

KMF Bad Ischl 2017

The most exquisite classical music from 14th to 15th October at 7.30pm and 11am, respectively in PKS-Villa Rothstein!

The Festival

The chamber music festival Bad Ischl was founded in 2005 under the artistic direction of the violist Lena Fankhauser. Since then the festival has invited renowned artists from Austria and abroad to Bad Ischl in the beautiful Salzkammergut - where Johannes Brahms once wrote some of his most beautiful chamber music pieces. It offers a highly diversified program of music from classical to modern. The association "(CH)AMBER - Association for New Chamber Music", founded by the initiators, is focusing on contemporary composers, and there have already been some world premieres presented at the festival. It is important for the artists to perform in different formations in order to offer chamber music in all its diversity. Thus, there are always works in the program, which are rarely to be heard in other events. Performances are done in beautiful concert halls, which like the PKS Villa-Rothstein, the Lehártheater or the Bad Ischl "Trinkhalle" have a close relationship to the cultural roots of Bad Ischl and can convey.

A special highlight this year are the newly arranged Beatles songs by Martin Wöss and Monika Ballwein accompanied by string quartet. On the same evening of the concert the Brahms String Quartet no. 2 in A minor Op. 51 no.2 as well as the contemporary piece from Heitor Villa Lobos "Andante trio for Strings" (1945) will be presented.

On the second day of the festival there is a matinee with the Aron Quartet. The program includes the string quartet No. 1 "Kreutzersonate" (1923) by Leoš Janáček and Mozart's string quartet in G minor together with the violist Lena Fankhauser as well as the world premiere of a piece from Jörg Ulrich Krah "Strukturen für Streichquartett (2017)".
