December 10th – 12th, 2021
We have a wonderful new artistic advisor on the team, Mr. Numa Bischof Ullmann, which we are all excited about. And of course, the possibility of collaborating with the Luzern Symphony Orchestra is such an added value to the KLOSTERS CHRISTMAS CONCERTS.
Mr. Bischof Ulmann and Stephen Johns, Artistic Director of the RCM have been in touch for many months discussing possible programs. Because of the corona situation, and also because of logistical and artistic timings, this year, the LSO will not be coming to Klosters as a smaller concert program has been envisioned – in response to these uncertain times. The RCM ensemble will also not be coming to Klosters. The Saturday concert will feature soloists, with no orchestra. We are very pleased to announce that Felix Bagge and the Lund singers are all looking forward to returning to Klosters, as well as the female chorus.
There will be a string quartet from the RCM, with two great Swiss violinists – David Nebel and Laia Braun. David has already recorded two discs for Sony, and is a phenomenal young player. There will be a wonderful new Irish flutist, a young pianist/organist from the UK and very probably a solo harpist from Switzerland. And finally Julieth Lozano and Theodor Uggla will also be coming back.
So, in summary, the Friday concert at the Hotel Vereina will feature solo and chamber performances with seasonal songs and all the performers.
Saturday will also have solo and chamber performances, including more formal repertoire for chorus. And Sunday’s Christmas Concert will have Christmas music for choir, solo and chamber, including Swiss carols for audience participation.
