The audience strolls through the palace gardens to listen to night music by Mozart, Glenn Miller and Tárrega before coming together in the Planet Hall for the most beautiful moon Lieder of the Romantic era. Marie-Claude Chappuis, who gave an unforgettable performance as Idamante in Harnoncourt‘s Idomeneo in Graz, is accompanied by the silvery tones of the fortepiano, played by Florian Birsak.

Pacific Quartet Vienna

String quartet

With its sensitive, warm sound, the international quartet delights its ever-growing audience worldwide. Highlights of past seasons include concerts at the Vienna Musikverein, Wigmore Hall in London and the Brucknerhaus in Linz. Successful tours have already taken the quartet to Italy, Japan and Taiwan.

José María Obeso


José María Obeso belongs to a generation of Mexican guitarists who are active in Europe today. His interpretations of the repertoire from Latin America in particular characterise his concerts. José María Obeso has been teaching classical guitar and electric guitar at the Gleisdorf Music School since 2017, where he also conducts the local guitar orchestra.

The finest sense of sound and artistic mastery characterise the interplay of this sworn quartet, which is made up of established soloists and chamber musicians. With their almost inexhaustible palette of colours, they celebrate a symbiosis of classical and jazz, of pop and contemporary music.

Marie-Claude Chappuis


The singer, who trained in her native city of Fribourg in Switzerland and in Salzburg, is one of the most sought-after mezzo-sopranos of her generation. She has twice been nominated for a Grammy Award, received a nomination for the Swiss Music Awards and won the Prix du Midem. She is regularly invited as a soloist and collaborates with renowned conductors.

Florian Birsak


The Salzburg native is one of the most respected specialists in historically informed performance practice on the fortepiano and harpsichord. His outstanding basso continuo playing makes him a sought-after continuo partner for numerous top orchestras, and he also shines as a stylistically confident soloist and chamber musician in baroque and classical music.
