Are there still orchestral works by Strauss to be discovered? You would be astonished! There are still genuine treasures slumbering in the composer’s estate! One of these is Strauss’ Concertouverture in b minor. Nobody has listened to any performance yet: The Camerata Salzburg will play another world premiere at this year’s Richard-Strauss-Tage.

Just like the Concertouverture, the young Strauss dedicated also his first Horn Concerto to his father. Richard Strauss knew how to write impressive music for this instrument, since his father was one of the most prestigious horn players of his time. The Camerata Salzburg will present the concerto with the renowned solo hornist Johannes Hinterholzer.

None other than Strauss’ mentor Hans von Bülow conducted the first performance of the Horn Concerto. A great admirer of von Bülow’s conducting, Strauss made notes on von Bülow’s conception in his own scores of Beethoven’s nine symphonies in the mid-1880s. The Camerata Salzburg will perform Beethoven’s 4th Symphony in Strauss’ set-up - a sensation not to be missed!

17:15 Introduction

In cooperation with the White Night 2021, which will take place from 4pm to midnight in the Michael Ende Kurpark, weather permitting. The dress code is white.

Camerata Sazburgis one of the leading chamber orchestras worldwide. Invitations to the most prestigious venues from New York to Beijing complement the orchestra’s concert activities in their hometown, Salzburg.
The CAMERATA is one of the core ensembles of the Salzburg Festival and Mozart Week since 1956. The subscription series in the great hall of the International Foundation Mozarteum is a pillar of Salzburg´s musical life and CAMERATA’s Festival “Schubert in Gastein” offers an annual “Schubertiade” in the alpine landscape.

At the center of the repertoire, in addition to the works of Joseph Haydn, Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Schubert, is of course the work of our genius loci Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It is above all the typical “Salzburg Mozart sound” that over the years has made CAMERATA an international ambassador and musical figurehead of the city of Salzburg.
Highlights in recent years have included appearances at the Festival de Pâques in Aix-en-Provence, BBC Proms in London, Enescu Festival in Bucharest, Beijing Music Festival  and Carnegie Hall in New York. The CAMERATA has a close cooperation with the Wiener Konzerthaus and appears regularly in the Tonhalle Zurich, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, the Kultur- und Kongresszentrum Luzern, the Prinzregententheater Munich as well as the Cologne Philharmonie and the Philharmonie de Paris.

Personalities like Géza Anda, Sándor Végh and Sir Roger Norrington have shaped the CAMERATA sound. Musicians such as Heinz Holliger, Alfred Brendel, Philippe Herreweghe, Franz Welser-Möst, Pinchas Zukerman, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Teodor Currentzis, Matthias Goerne, Fazıl Say, Renaud Capuçon, Yuja Wang and Hélène Grimaud, among others, have been prominent partners of the CAMERATA in past years.

When Bernhard Paumgartner founded the orchestra in 1952, the artistic credo of each individual member was clear: making music on one’s own responsibility within the CAMERATA community. A maxim that the orchestra and its members live to this day. Long time mentors Bernhard Paumgartner and Sándor Végh shaped the world-famous sound of CAMERATA. After Végh’s death, Sir Roger Norrington, as chief conductor, had a lasting influence on the orchestra. Today Sir Roger is the Director Laureate of CAMERATA. His successors as artistic directors were Leonidas Kavakos and the French conductor Louis Langrée. Since 2016, the musicians at CAMERATA have taken artistic direction into their own hands.

Led by their concert master Gregory Ahss as “primus inter pares”, the musicians work together to interpret sound and its subtleties and the music behind the notes. In this way, even in the seventh decade of its existence, CAMERATA maintains a “joy of playing that is contagious” (Neue Zürcher Zeitung). CAMERATA  concertizes regularly with its artistic partners Renaud Capuçon, François Leleux and Fazıl Say and guest conductors such as Andrew Manze, Lionel Bringuier and Ingo Metzmacher to collaborate with them this season.
Recordings of CDs and CDs by well-known labels such as Deutsche Grammophon, DECCA, Sony or Warner Classics – many of which have won important prizes – testify to the excellence and dedication to music of the CAMERATA musicians from more than 20 nations.
