Ensemble Zefiro


The top Italian ensemble is one of the Styriarte's closest friends - it is impossible to imagine our season-long project of rediscovering Fux's operatic jewels without it. Zefiro concentrates on the music of the 18th century and is considered a worldwide reference especially in the concert repertoire with solo wind instruments.

Alfredo Bernardini

Oboist & Conductor

His incredibly lively and sonorous performing has made the Roman Alfredo Bernardini the leading baroque oboist of our time. As a soloist and conductor, he appears worldwide with top ensembles such as Hespèrion XXI or the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra. His own ensemble Zefiro is also a celebrated public favourite at the Styriarte festival.


finest "Harmoniemusik"

This woman risks everything to save her husband’s life: Leonore, alias Fidelio, thwarts inhumanity by freeing Florestan from the dark dungeon of tyranny. The heroic language of Beethoven’s only opera comes over just as well in the arrangement for “Harmoniemusik” brought to us by Bernardini and his wind players. When the minister’s fanfare eventually announces Florestan’s deliverance, the Styriarte audience can move out into the park to enjoy a summer picnic.
