Be The Change

"Be The Change" is the theme of the Easter Festival Psalm 2022 in Graz and draws on "17 Sustainable Development Goals" of the United Nations. What can we all do to create a world that is fair, free and safe for everyone? Psalm 2022 seeks the answer with the help of seven of these goals, which are illuminated with great music.

Karl Markovics


The superstar of national cinema fascinates his audience with ever new facets. His career, which began in 1994 with "Kommissar Rex" and was crowned in 2008 with the leading role in the Oscar-winning Ruzowitzy film "The Counterfeiters", he now also continues as a stage director. Styriarte loves his incredibly impressive guest performances as a reader.

Leia Zhu


The British violinist made her debut at the age of just four and has since been highly praised for her musical maturity, expressive interpretations and impressive technical skills. Born in 2006, Leia Zhu is already considered a future star.

Recreation - Das Orchester


Recreation is special in many ways: consisting of musicians whose nationalities range from Japan to Venezuela, most of the members received part of their training in Graz. After its formation in 2002, the collective played unique halls such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt and worked with outstanding conductors.

Patrick Hahn


Opera composer at the age of twelve, general music director at 26. This very young Graz native is a much-admired phenomenon on the international classical music scene. In addition to fresh charisma and concentrated competence, he is extraordinarily versatile: as a profound accompanist and jazz pianist, Patrick Hahn knows no boundaries.


best film scores and exciting ballads

He stole from the rich to give to the poor. Whether or not the stories about the legendary robber and benefactor Robin Hood are made up or true, the message is quite clear: in Sherwood Forest things are shared out fairly. Erich Wolfgang Korngold wrote one of his best film scores for the famous Hollywood classic, and this is the music to which Karl Markovics reads excerpts from the exciting ballads about Robin, Maid Marian, Friar Tuck, and that nasty character the Sheriff of Nottingham.
