What would the Gastein summer be without music? Year after year, exciting concerts adorn the warm season and combine living tradition with a heart for modernity. Classic: Summer in Bad Hofgastein provides cultural highlights non-stop until September 27, 2019. The calendar of events is full, the program is inspiring – time for a preview of the top music events of the summer!
Gastein music in the mountains and in the valley
The concert summer turns numerous places and spots in the Gastein Valley into exciting venues. The extremely popular Alm: Classical concert series will move music enjoyment to lofty heights from the end of August. Several Gasteiner Almen combine folk music and classical ensemble enjoyment with culinary refinements and a fantastic view. Family concerts in the valley invite you to join in on eight summer Fridays. Big and small play together. The main venue, however, is the Kursaal Bad Hofgastein with three concerts per week – every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday from 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Schubert and the summer night gala
Of course, that’s not all that this year’s Classic: Summer in Gastein has to offer. On July 19, opera choirs will make the Alpenarena Bad Hofgastein the center of the Salzburg world of classical music from 8 p.m. The big summer night gala is presented by tenor Peter Sonn and the Salzburg Philharmonic with a fantastic program based on arias and overtures by Verdi, Puccini and Rossini. It is already worth taking a look at September, when “Schubert in Gastein” takes a detailed look at the composer’s work over four days. Several concerts and recitals invite you on a musical journey through time.
