We are very pleased to invite you to a special live concert in the Swiss mountains: Maurice Steger will play for you and conduct the phenomenal orchestra Il pomo d’oro, the young Christoph Croisé will interpret Haydn’s first cello concert, Mozart’s Kleine Nacht Musik will be heard and many more surprises on the theme of Sturm und Drang will shake us awake.
Maurice Steger about his concert at KLOSTERS MUSIC 2020:
I am really looking forward to the concert in my home country – I grew up only a few minutes away from Klosters. And I am very happy and proud that we will be able to perform the concert, this with protective regulations for you, dear audience, which we will be able to implement perfectly in this wonderful mountain village. Our health comes first and therefore I am especially happy to welcome you live, even real, in Klosters.
Together with the phenomenal orchestra il pomo d’oro, which plays on original instruments of the time, I present a Viennese program with a lot of Sturm und Drang. Do you know La Tempesta di mare by Carlo Monza? Or the virtuoso symphony by Wagenseil? These are discoveries of the first order, I can hardly wait for these stormy moments. It is also a special pleasure for me to play the wonderful recorder concerto by Beethoven’s contemporary Anton Heberle, what music! Funny, inviting, naive, virtuosic, sometimes voluptuous, sometimes folksy (there are a few ländler hidden away), so appropriate to the folk festival in the Grisons.
To experience once the Kleine Nachtmusik of Mozart played inspired at the highest level, far away from memories of shallow background music, belongs to the greatest of the classical period. And it is a great pleasure for me to be able to present to you the young and aspiring Swiss cellist Christoph Croisé: in Haydn’s magnificent Cello Concerto, all affects and emotional states are probably awakened, virtuoso, solemn, playful and enchantingly beautiful.
Welcome to Klosters Music 2020!
