Music in the Alps

Topics: Gastein TV | Concert

Information about the Event:

This year’s festival is dedicated to the strong, wistful yearning for reunion: “Together again/Wieder vereint” is the befitting motto of Music in the Alps 2022.

 

As the artistic director, New York concert pianist and music professor Dr. Irena Portenko invites audiences to attend the ninth edition of the “Music in the Alps” festival in Bad Gastein. Participating in the festival are musicians and artists such as international stars Tatyana Melnychenko, soloist of the New York Metropolitan Opera, and countertenor Jeffrey Palmer, as well as professors and students from around the world.
Fans of this festival series are greeted by passionate musical encounters – in a stylish setting, proverbially embraced by the mountains. The program includes a concert with Irena Portenko, at which it is actually the audience itself that determines the order in which the pieces are performed. Further concerts are entitled “Songs of Passion”, “Songs of Love” and “Songs of Paradise”, promising great emotionality: love stories, told through music.
