Festival: Klosters Music

Bringing early music to life and charging it with energy

that was what the members of the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra wanted when they founded it in 1987. Historical performance practice as a vitamin jab! The orchestra plays standing up. The musicians are involved with their whole bodies and move to the rhythms. Artistic director Gottfried von der Goltz is a man of the moment and, at the concert master’s desk, celebrates 800 years of Klosters and the orchestra’s 35-year anniversary with a lavish baroque festival. Francesco Corti, professor of historical keyboard instruments at the renowned Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, will make Johann Sebastian Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in D minor shine. Georg Friedrich Händel’s “Water Music” and other Baroque concerti are further highlights on the festive programme. This party is not to be missed.
