When/on which occasion
have you been in Grafenegg
for the first time?

In summer 2014, as an EUYO member. I remember the first time I saw the castle; the realisation that this
place was completely consecrated to music was a very breathtaking moment.

And when/on which occasion 
was the last time you
were there?

Last summer, 2018! I am very lucky because with the only exception of 2017 I came once a year to Grafenegg,
every time with a different role: EUYO member, Campus Orchestra tutor, EUYO alumnus for 
Grafenegg’s anniversary concert and finally as a member of the newborn Grafenegg Academy Orchestra.

I often say that there is always a new reason to come back to Grafenegg, 
but the old one is the unique atmosphere you can breathe here. Everyone and everything
is there to enable you to make great music and feel at home. 
Last year’s surprise was the opportunity to stay in the new Grafenegg cottages 
and again I thought: «There is not a place like this anywhere else.»

We all enjoyed the beauty of the place, also the great food and regional wines! The beauty of the place,
paired with the very demanding and inspiring lessons we had there, has left us many great memories.
We are very much looking forward to coming to Grafenegg again!

I had the most wonderful opportunity to experience Campus Grafenegg through the 2016 and 2018
INK STILL WET composer conductor-workshop.

comment on Campus Grafenegg:

My experience in this programme nurtured me as a composer, conductor, and overall musician, and provided
me with the unparalleled opportunity to work at a very high level with the incredible Tonkunstler Orchestra
and Composers in Residence. It was so exciting to discover new insights about our own pieces and collaborate
with such extraordinary musicians and colleagues in bringing them to life! I am always inspired by everyone’s
dedication and musicianship, performing music of every era – from Beethoven to Britten to world premieres of
our own – with such passion and joy. To have all of these shared experiences in the beautiful and inspiring setting
of Campus Grafenegg, from classes in the Castle to festival concerts in the gorgeous Wolkenturm and Auditorium,
and all with the support of such a kind administration as Team Grafenegg, is very special and rewarding!
Inspiration comes from everywhere on Campus Grafenegg!

Das Beste ist der riesige Park, um in der Pause zu entspannen, Sport zu machen, in den Liegestühlen zu
relaxen und die Natur zu genießen. Ein Konzert am Wolkenturm zu spielen, wäre ein Traum, für den ich
jederzeit wieder zurückkommen würde.
