"Moritzburg Festival 2015”to Open August 15
Artistic Director Jan Vogler Invites Musicians, Music Lovers to "Mecca of Chamber Music" in Dresden
Jan Vogler

This year's "Moritzburg Festival for Chamber Music" will take place from August 15 to 30, 2015 in Dresden, Germany.

The Moritzburg Festival Orchestra under the direction of Milan Turkovic will open the chamber music festival.

The high-quality chamber music festival will be moderated by the world famous German cellist Jan Vogler.

Vogler is the organizer and artistic director of “Moritzburg Festival,”a famed German chamber music festival.

More than 20 young and talented musicians have been invited by Jan Vogler, to rehearse and to perform together besides the tranquil lakes of the baroque Moritzburg Castle.

The musicians include ECHO Klassik Award winning horn player Felix Klieser, violist Lawrence Power, cellist Johannes Moser, and pianist Francesco Piemontesi.

This year’s composer in residence is Matthias Pintscher, whose "Now II" for solo cello will be premiered by Jan Vogler on August 26, 2015. MDR Figaro will broadcast the concert live on the ARD Radiosommer.

Participants can enjoy the high-quality chamber music in the unique atmosphere of the Proschwitz Castle Gardens.

Guests are invited to bring your own picnic baskets as well as picnic rugs as alternative seats and rugs can be rented on site.

There will also be the opportunity to buy drinks at the venue. Invitees should note that there is no concert seating.

In case of bad weather the event will take place in the Proschwitz Castle.
