Festival goes ahead open air and without musical restrictionsmain
Jan Vogler’s Moritzburg Festival will go ahead next week with 26 international soloists giving open-air concerts on the north terrace of the Moritzburg Castle, near Dresden.
Lise de la Salle, Baiba Skride and Alessio Bax are among the attractions. The long-lost original version of Bohuslav Martinů’s 2nd String Quartet will receive its world premiere.
Vogler says: ‘Musicians and audiences are yearning for live concerts. The crisis-born idea of the romantic open air stage on the terrace of the Moritzburg Castle is a stroke of luck. We are looking forward to reuniting with the audience.’
The audience will observe safe distancing.
