Culture in Eppan
Concert evening with the String Academy Bozen at Freudenstein Castle
The Bolzano String Academy can look back on almost 40 years of history. The renowned ensemble was founded in 1987 by its artistic director Georg Egger. It is mainly made up of South Tyrolean musicians who want to pass on their rich chamber music and orchestral experience to young musicians in important ensembles at home and abroad. At the invitation of KulturKontakt Eppan, they are now making a guest appearance at Freudenstein Castle.
The Bolzano String Academy will perform two extraordinary works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in a chamber music setting: Quintets in C major and C minor from 1788. Mozart himself spoke of "three new quintets à 2 violini, 2 viola and violoncello, beautifully and correctly written".
These were three quintets the likes of which had never been heard before in Viennese chamber music, as these three works were unprecedented in scope.
The C minor Quintet K. 406 is an arrangement of Mozart's great C minor Serenade for eight wind instruments. Incidentally, the original wind version of this "Nachtmusique", composed in 1782, will be performed on December 8 at the Heinrich von Mörl Prize Winners' Concert.
