Musical Epiphanies

Gustav Mahler and Alban Berg spent their summers at the southcoast of the Woerthersee, Johannes Brahms composed in Poertschach, Anton von Webern lodged in Klagenfurt and Hugo Wolfs youth was characterized by the hilly landscape of the middle and south of Carinthia. A few generations later we remember this european inheritance and in 2002 the idea of connecting these five exceptional composers to one great festival was realized for the first time. The carefully aligned programe makes claim to a very high artistic quality and is completed through lectures and presentations on the subject.

The silhouettes of Otto Böhler became an incentive  for a wider range of composers for the festival. The most important factor in that case is a balance between classical compositions, works which are commissioned for the festival and at the same time honouring specific Carinthian artists.
