Salzburg Festival 2015



Dirndl-mania, 2013

 
Tomorrow, I shall fly to Salzburg. With performance, one never quite knows what will happen, but I am quietly confident that I should find a few things to enjoy from the following:


9 August – Maurizio Pollini: works by Beethoven and Schoenberg

10 August – Wolfgang Rihm, Die Eroberung von Mexico (Skovhus, Denoke, ORF SO/Metzmacher; dir. Konwitschny)

12 August – West-Eastern Divan Orchestra/Barenboim: works by Debussy, Boulez, and Tchaikovsky

13 August – Fidelio (Kaufmann, Pieczonka, VPO/Welser-Möst; dir. Guth)

14 August – West-Eastern Divan Orchestra/Barenboim: works by Beethoven and Schoenberg

14 August – Mackie Messer – Eine Salzburger Dreigroschenoper (arr. Martin Lowe; dir. Julian Crouch and Sven-Eric Bechtolf)

15 August – Mutter/VPO/Muti: works by Tchaikovsky and Brahms

15 August – IRCAM/EIC/Pintscher: Boulez, Répons (my first ‘live’ performance)
