Season Sounds


Music is always

in season at Grafenegg

Once again, Season Sounds 24/25 features the most beautiful orchestral music, new and unheard works, and fine chamber music, just for you. The Tonkunstler-Orchestra of Lower Austria showcases its excellence in a total of nine different concert programmes. 

    Loyal visitors will observe that the 24/25 season is characterised by the people who have made a significant impact on the Tonkunstler Orchestra and Grafenegg, including current Music Director Yutaka Sado, former Music Director Fabio Luisi, and future Music Director Fabien Gabel, who will conduct the Midsummer Night's Gala for the first time. 

    Season opening

    Things get underway with a performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's monumental 3rd Symphony «Eroica» in the auditorium. At its first performances it broke through all conventions and was longer, grander, and more powerful than anything the public and heard before. The season opener is rounded off by Alexander Arutiunian's Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra and an orchestral work by Georg Friedrich Haas. 

    Festive concerts

    For Christmas, you can expect a festive and rousing programme with works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Arcangelo Corelli and Georg Friedrich Handel. Baroque specialist Laurence Cummings is joined by soprano Nardus Williams, winner of the International Opera Awards, and the virtuoso Emma Black, principal oboist in several leading period-instrument orchestras. 

    The Easter weekend features a degree of innovation - instead of the usual concerts on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, works by Joseph Haydn breath musical life into Holy Saturday. Conductor Alessandro de Marchi directs the extremely moving orchestral version of «The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross». The vocal works on the programme concert are performed by Emily D'Angelo, who in 2019 was the first singer ever to receive the prestigious Leonard Bernstein Award from the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival. 

    Chamber music

    Every year, the ECMA (European Chamber Music Academy) makes a stop in Grafenegg, this time not in the Riding School, which is currently undergoing remodelling, but in the inspiring surroundings of Grafenegg Castle. The historic library will serve as an intimate concert hall for both the evening 'Best of' concert and the matinee given by the Chaos String Quartet - an experience not to be missed!
