big mass in Stainz

Nie hat Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart gewaltigere Chöre geschrieben als in seiner c-Moll-Messe. Jordi Savall und der Arnold Schoenberg Chor kosten die Macht der Musik in jeder leidenden Dissonanz aus, in wuchtigen Chorblöcken und riesigen Fugen. Die vier Solist:innen brillieren im heiligen Belcanto, das Styriarte Festspiel-Orchester hüllt den Gesang in die Weihrauch-Wolken des Originalklangs. Eine Votiv-Messe sollte sie sein, die große Messe, die nie fertig wurde. In Stainz wird sie durch Jordi Savall zum großen Gebet.

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.

Marianne Beate Kielland


The Norwegian Marianne Beate Kielland is a sought-after interpreter of baroque opera roles and has already been nominated for a US Grammy in the category "Best Vocal Classical Album”. She is one of the leading mezzo-sopranos in Europe and is invited, for example to the Philharmonie Köln as a Lied singer.

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.

Manuel Winckhler


The sought-after Munich concert singer studied singing at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and at the University of Music and Theatre in Munich. He was a scholarship holder of the Richard Wagner Association Munich and received the Deutschlandstipendium. His repertoire ranges from the oratorios of J. S. Bach to Mozart's Requiem and romantic works such as the Brahms Requiem.

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.

Jordi Savall

Viola da Gamba & Conductor

There is no early music fan who does not know the name Jordi Savall. There is no award that the "Ambassador of the European Union for Cultural Dialogue" has not won in the course of his world career. So it is all the more enjoyable that the Catalan, born in 1941, has been one of the Styriarte's closest and most loyal friends for decades.
