Back to StradivariFEST «Winter Sounds at Lake Zurich»

After various celebrated international tours and acclaimed Stradivari festivals in Hamburg, Sils, Cremona and Gersau, we are playing a concert cycle with our fellow musicians in our home at Lake Zurich for the second time. After the first successful season with Schubert's chamber music, which far exceeded our expectations and was well received by the audience and the press, the second season of 2018/19 is dedicated to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's great chamber music works: in addition to his three "Prussian" quartets, a string quintet, his string sextet version of the Sinfonia Concertante, the horn quintet and the piano quintet will be played. In Stäfa an evening will be given on the subject of "Love duet", which will bring to light various arias from Mozart's operas.

The five concerts take place in selected halls around Lake Zurich: in Florhof Zurich, Schloss Au, Schloss Rapperswil, Gemeindesaal Obstgarten Stäfa and in the Vogtei in Herrliberg. In Herrliberg and Zurich there will be a concert introduction especially for children, where we will show them everything behind the scenes and explore Mozart's world with them.

After each concert, the musicians invite you to an aperitif. They also hold an artist dinner after two concerts – both in order to cultivate contact with the audience as intensively as possible.
