An outstanding vocal line-up, featuring Mojca Erdmann, Ian Bostridge, Gerald Finley and the Arnold Schoenberg Choir, promise an evening of festive glory under the direction of Andrés Orozco-Estrada.
The choir’s words «Und es ward Licht» announce the beginning of Creation, so masterly set to music by Joseph Haydn. Before the great oratorio, a fanfare by 2012’s composer in residence James MacMillan will sound at the opening of the Music Festival. Both works translate spiritual content into music.
There’s a special feeling in the air when you step through the gates of Grafenegg to plunge into the open atmosphere of this Music Festival. Here is a fascinating combination of past and future, tangible in the contrast between the old castle and the modern open-air stage, Wolkenturm. On mild summer evenings, performances are in the open; in poor weather, the Auditorium opens its doors.
