Maria Kubizek

The violinist studied in Vienna, Salzburg and London and was particularly influenced by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. As a concertmaster and soloist, Maria Kubizek has been active with a wide variety of orchestras and formations, drawing her inspiration from projects that go beyond the normal concert setting.

Aki Saulière


The French-Japanese violinist has already appeared on the very grand stages of classical music and performed as a member of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe with Nikolaus Harnoncourt. After studying in London, Salzburg and Berlin, she returned to France to found the Capuçon Quartet with Renaud and Gautier Capuçon. As artistic director of La Loingtaine, Aki organizes concerts and master classes.

David Quiggle


David Quiggle has been a leading violist, chamber musician and teacher for more than 20 years. Born in the USA, he has spent time in Europe, Asia and South America teaching youth orchestras. In 2017 he took up the position of principal viola with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Raphael Bell


On stage, the U.S. cellist is a soloist with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra in Antwerp and has performed as a chamber musician at Suntory Hall in Tokyo and the legendary Carnegie Hall in New York. But Raphael Bell also brings his expertise to bear backstage, co-founding a chamber music festival in his native Virginia.

Christoph Steiner


As an actor, author, singer and Austrian poetry slam champion, Graz-born Christoph Steiner is at home on many stages and is convincing both as a musical performer at the Graz Opera and as a permanent ensemble member at the Next Liberty.


Travel with Antonín Dvořák

Antonín Dvořák loved trains, ships and everything related to travel. In just 36 hours the express train brought him from New York to Iowa, where he spent an unforgettable summer with his family. In the “American String Quartet” he captured for posterity the atmosphere of that time. His children also found a lot to interest them in the USA, from dancing indigenous peoples to the world exhibition in Chicago. Graz actor Christoph Steiner and violinist Maria Kubizek combine words and sounds to create an intimate “Symphony from the New World”.
