Miriam Kutrowatz


The freshness and expressiveness of her singing, combined with exceptional acting skills, predestine the 1997-born Viennese for opera. Her stunning Zerlina was a highlight of the semi-concert "Don Giovanni in Nöten" at the Styriarte 2020. Her repertoire already ranges from Handel to Humperdinck.

Margot Oitzinger


The mezzo-soprano has a love for early music: the Graz-born singer has made a name for herself both as a concert singer and as an opera interpreter and works with renowned conductors such as the exceptional talent Jordi Savall. Polyphonic and early baroque ensemble singing are as much a part of her daily routine as the works of high baroque masters as a soloist.

Daniel Johannsen


The Viennese learned from all-time legends such as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Christa Ludwig and Robert Holl. He is undoubtedly one of the most important interpreters of the Lied by Franz Schubert, with which he also delights and touches the Styriarte audience time and again. In addition, his lyric tenor is in demand internationally in oratorio and opera productions.

Damien Gastl


The youthful, vital baritone left a lasting impression on the Styriarte audience at his brilliant "Don Giovanni" debut in 2020. Only a little later, in autumn 2020, he made the leap into the opera studio ensemble of his hometown of Strasbourg. In addition, the young Frenchman has already made guest appearances in oratorio productions by renowned German orchestras.

Arnold Schoenberg Chor


The differentiation and plasticity with which Erwin Ortner's hand-picked ensemble of voices realises choral works from all epochs is unrivalled. The Arnold Schoenberg Choir, founded in 1972 and a regular guest at the Styriarte festival for decades, has won countless prizes - including the Grammy in 2002 for a St Matthew Passion under Nikolaus Harnoncourt.

Erwin Ortner


The doyen of Austrian choral music has been closely associated with the Styriarte festival for decades - also thanks to the congenial, "Grammy"- and "Echo"-award-winning collaboration of his Arnold Schoenberg Choir with Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Erwin Ortner is also Hofkapellmeister in Vienna and was the rector of the Vienna University of Music for many years.

Styriarte Festspiel-Orchester


Styriarte's orchestral "Supergroup" is made up of changing international star guests and musicians from the first-class fund of the Recreation orchestra, depending on need and occasion. The orchestra's tuning and choice of instruments follow the historical requirements of the works performed.

Michael Hofstetter


The Munich-born conductor, born in 1961, has been a very close friend of Styriarte since his highly acclaimed work as chief conductor of the Recreation Orchestra (2012 - 2016). His excellence in the historical practice of baroque and classical music as well as his inspiring enthusiasm on the podium are in demand on the world's great concert and opera stages.


a feast for heart and soul, ear and eye

Mozart’s “Coronation Mass“ in Stainz – a feast for heart and soul, ear and eye. And yet this 1779 mass was more revolutionary and provocative than the people of Salzburg at the time cared for. A new ideal was also emerging on the Rhine: “Then mankind climbed into the light, earth turned more happily round the sun” wrote the young Beethoven on the death of Joseph II. The proponent of Enlightenment on the imperial throne remained Beethoven‘s ideal of a humane ruler all his life.
