Everything is new about the 2021 Salzburg Easter Festival! We are extraordinarily proud to be able to offer you an exciting programme, concentrated over the Easter weekend, with many of our long-announced artists performing a variety of works in new constellations:
 
Christian Thielemann and the Staatskapelle Dresden will open the Salzburg Easter Festival on Good Friday with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Requiem in d minor (K. 626). The Bachchor Salzburg will sing alongside the soloists Golda Schultz, Szilvia Vörös, Sebastian Kohlhepp and Alexander Tsymbalyuk.
 
On Easter Saturday, Denis Matsuev, one of the most in-demand pianists of his generation, will play Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto in a minor. The same concert, under the baton of Christian Thielemann, will include Ludwig van Beethoven’s renowned Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, op. 55, the Eroica.
 
On Easter Sunday, the Easter Festival will welcome Sir Antonio Pappano to the podium of the Staatskapelle. He will conduct Maurice Ravels suite for orchestra Ma mère l'oye and Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 in C major. Hilary Hahn, a former ‘Wunderkind’ who is today a celebrated international star, will play Mozart’s A-major Violin Concerto.
 
The Easter Festival will close on Easter Monday with a Gala Concert featuring Anna Netrebko, Golda Schultz, Yusif Eyvazov and Alexander Tsymbalyuk, who were supposed to sing in Puccini's Turandot. They will be joined by the Staatskapelle Dresden, once more under the baton of Christian Thielemann.
 

The Salzburg Easter Festival, Christian Thielemann and Nikolaus Bachler look forward to your visit in 2021.
