Båstad Chamber Music Festival
We will celebrate our 25th anniversary and it will also be my last year, after 12 year as artistic director. As usual our Festival is full of unusual colourful concerts with chamber music from baroque- until contemporary music. A musical feast! The theme this year will be ”Ursprung” (Roots/Origin)- Folk music in the art music focused on reflections, but also to new times and new thinking, something that has always been an important component in the festival. We often find strong influences from the traditional folk music in the European art music. Many composers relate to their own or other country’s folk music traditions and are therefore contributing to create something new from the old. The theme also includes the message „music – the global language”, expressing the understanding and interest in other cultures and therefore the respect for all mankind, an important message for a 25 year jubilee!
Welcome to unforgettable musical moments in Båstad on the beutiful penninsula Bjäre!
