Winter Sounds at Lake Zurich – Schubert (2017/18)
After having successfully organized StradivariFESTS in multiple countries and cities that have resulted in great interest and feedback we would like to create something similar in our home at Lake Zurich. In doing so we want to meet the needs of our loyal audience and work with the communities.
We are starting our «Winter Sounds at Lake Zurich» event in the 2017/2018 season with the support of various partners and event organizers. The focus will be on a different composer every year, the first of which is Franz Schubert. The Stradivari Quartet play his wonderful chamber music literature accompanied by other musicians. The concerts include several String Quartets, the String Quintet, the Trout Quintet, Piano Trio, String Trio, the Arpeggione Sonata and the Winter Journey in a version for baritone, quartet and right up to an octet. For one of the concerts we will even come together as a small chamber orchestra to accompany the Rondo for Violin and adding an overture.
The concerts are taking place in beautiful venues around the lake, e.g. Florhof Zürich, Au Château, Rapperswil Castle, Schinzenhof Horgen and various churches around the lake.
Each event starts with an artist talk, hosted by Ludwig Hartmann, who has carried out this concept very successfully at the German NDR Kultur radio station in the form of various concert talks. Upon request you can personally continue the conversation with him after the concert with a glass of wine. The interaction with the audience is very important to us.
We are also offering the opportunity to have dinner with the artists after the events in Herrliberg, Horgen and Rapperswil.
