From 22 May until 25 September, classical music will once again be in the air of Gastein Valley. Klassik:Sommer 2020 in Gastein treats music lovers to an array of memorable moments - from the big Summer Night's Gala in July, to Alm:Klassik along with delightful family concerts.
A marvelous selection of music to enjoy, in the valley as well as up on the alpine pastures – that's what Klassik:Sommer in Gasteinertal is all about! Live music and Gastein look back on a long tradition. One reason why this particular musical highlight in Salzburger Land will once again be a highlight of the event calendar in Bad Hofgastein. As in the past, Philharmonie Salzburg will be putting on some truly extraordinary concerts. Under the direction of conductor Elisabeth Fuchs, this beloved orchestra will present orchestral music that will spark your dreams and your imagination, and might even get your toes tapping as well – at venues that include the Alpenarena in Bad Hofgastein. The program of Klassik:Sommer 20120 is colorful and full of joie de vivre.
With “Symphonic Rock", Philharmonie Salzburg and Sharon Levy will open Klassik:Sommer 2020 in Bad Hofgastein. On Friday, 22 May, the audience in the Kursaal will have their ears treated to a selection of rockhits from Deep Purple, the Rolling Stones or Paul Simon.
The musicians do what they do with a true passion, and you’ll quickly see: the joy they get from making music is infectious. Music touches people and brings them together – something you’ll get to experience for yourself at this opening concert of Klassik:Sommer in Gasteinertal.
The absolute highlight of our summer of classical music will be the big Summer Night’s Gala at the Alpenarena in Bad Hofgastein. When, on 17 July 2020 beginning at 8 p.m., Beethovens 9th Symphony are given their dues at the Alpenarena, the magic will be palpable to everyone in the audience.
A magnificent evening of classical music in the splendid setting of Alpenarena Bad Hofgastein – this year’s summer concert highlight in Gastein Valley!
The family concerts in Bad Hofgastein are a true celebration for all music fans, both the young and the young-at-heart. Philharmonie Salzburg, under the baton of conductor Christine Fuchs, will once again ensure during summer 2020 that guests of all ages are in for a special musical treat – with the help of such classics as Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” and the “Carnival of the Animals” by Camille Saint-Saens.
At these children’s concerts, kids and teens are actively involved in the performance itself and thus playfully introduced to the fascination of music. You can experience the family concerts in Bad Hofgastein on eight Fridays during the summer, between 17 July and 28 August 2020.
Klassik-Sommer concludes with "Schubert in Gastein". From 18 to 20 September, beautiful Schubert melodies will be floating in the air of Bad Gastein – music that continues to fascinate and inspire countless people to this very day
