Mozart! Rosendal Chamber Music Festival

The programme is created around the chamber music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Despite all the wonderful chamber music Mozart wrote, only a few pieces are regularly performed in chamber music festivals. So I would like 2017 to be an intense Mozart celebration in which we perform not only the really famous works – such as the Clarinet Quintet and Piano Quartet no. 1 – but also show the diversity of Mozart’s extraordinary music. How often does one actually hear his great string quartets and quintets or his piano sonatas in concert, or when did you last hear his pieces for two pianos or his lieder? Together – as both musicians and audience – we look forward to delving into this wealth of repertoire in what is a uniquely, perfect setting for chamber music – Rosendal.

To your information about the ticket links:

The ticket links above have no direct link to our booking system, we have to update them manually. Therefore, some tickets may be sold out even if the button is grey.

About the concert walks:
The concert walks at the Manor Saturday at 14.00 and 16.00 are unfortunately only included in the large 4-day packages due to limited capacity at the Manor.

About the Festival packages:

A handy Festival Pass will be your ticket during the festival. You will receive the card upon arrival in Rosendal. There is no numbered seating plan in the Great Hall, but our experience is that the sound is excellent in all parts of the Hall due to the state of the art digital acoustic system.

 

Mozart! Rosendal Chamber Music Festival

Following the huge success of the first Rosendal Chamber Music Festival, which takes place in an idyllic and remote valley in the Hardanger Fjord in west Norway, Leif Ove Andsnes announces the programme for the festival’s second year with a celebration of the chamber music of Mozart. Guest artists include Kristian Bezuidenhout, Martin Fröst, Anne Sofie von Otter, Francesco Piemontesi, Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, Sonoko Miriam Welde and Tabea Zimmermann.

“One of the joys of creating a festival programme is that it allows you to focus in depth on a particular aspect of a composer’s life and music” commented Festival Founder and Artistic Director, Leif Ove Andsnes.  “In 2016, for the 1st Rosendal Chamber Music Festival we focused on 1828 – the year of Franz Schubert’s death which was also a year in which the composer wrote some of his most poignantly beautiful music.  Now, for the 2nd Festival I have put together a programme around another big passion of mine – the chamber music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Despite all the wonderful chamber music Mozart wrote, only a few pieces are regularly performed in chamber music festivals.  So I would like 2017 to be an intense Mozart celebration in which we perform not only the really famous works – such as the Clarinet Quintet and Piano Quartet no. 1  – but also show the diversity of Mozart’s extraordinary music.  How often does one actually hear his great string quartets and quintets or his piano sonatas in concert, or when did you last hear his pieces for two pianos or his songs?”

“One of the ingenious aspects of Mozart’s music is his innate understanding for each instrument he writes for.  He really knew the strength of how a clarinet, viola or any other instrument could sound.  So I have asked several of this year’s guest musicians to pick out 20th century solo works that also show the real expression of their instrument including Ligeti’s Sonata for viola (1991 – 94), Esa Pekka Salonen’s Yta III (1987) for cello, Olav Berg’s Vertigo (1992) for bassoon, Takemitsu’s Entre Temps (1986) for oboe and strings, and Ravel’s Sonata for violin and piano (1923 – 27).  Topping them all is Messiaen’s deeply moving Quartet for the End of Time (1941) which will be the focus of a concert in its own right.  Together – as both musicians and audience – we look forward to delving into this wealth of repertoire in what must be a uniquely, perfect setting for chamber music – Rosendal.”

Joining Leif Ove Andsnes on stage in August are Kristian Bezuidenhout (fortepiano) and Francesco Piemontesi (piano), world famous Swedish artists Anne Sofie von Otter (mezzo-soprano) and Martin Fröst (clarinet), Mizuho Yosji (oboe), Audrun Halvorsen (bassoon), José Vicente Castelló (French horn), as well as long time chamber music partners, Tabea Zimmermann (viola) and siblings Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff (violin and cello) who will also perform with quartet partners Elisabeth Kufferath (violin) and Hanna Weinmeister (viola).

As with the 1st Rosendal Festival, 2017 will introduce upcoming young Norwegian artists. This year the Opus 13 String Quartet will perform with Sonoko Miriam Welde, Edvard Erdal (violins) Michael Grolid (viola) and Frida Tharaldsen Skaftun.

The Rosendal Chamber Music Festival extends deep thanks to the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation, whose meaningful financial support has made the festival’s ambitious artistic goals attainable.

– Leif Ove Andsnes
