Fritz Kircher

With his two violins, the Carinthian covers the field of historical practice as well as that of modern sound. As first violinist of the Haydn Quartet and member of other chamber music ensembles, he performs on the major international stages. He is also closely associated with the Styriarte as guest concertmaster of the Recreation Orchestra.

Firmian Lermer

The solo violist and chamber musician Firmian Lermer studied in Vienna, Munich and Amsterdam and worked with the Camerata Academica Salzburg for many years. In addition to his virtuoso work on international stages, he is also a sought-after leader of master classes at the University of Auckland and at Yale University.

Luis Zorita

Violoncello

Born in Spain, the cellist studied in Oviedo, Chicago, Vienna and Graz. Luis Zorita made a name for himself with his interpretations of great cello concertos of world literature and with engagements at renowned ensembles such as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Camerata Salzburg.

Florian Birsak

The Salzburg native is one of the most respected specialists in historically informed performance practice on the fortepiano and clavichord. 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.

Chris Pichler

Countless theatre and film successes throughout the German-speaking world are on the CV of the actress born in Linz in 1969. She is also a singer, (opera) director and author and creates her own roles from the records of important women - from Beethoven's housekeeper to Empress Sisi and Jackie Kennedy.

“child prodigy” education experiment

When Mozart was a little boy of five, his father began the “child prodigy” education experiment with him: life-long learning through travel, listening, observing, composing and giving concerts. Chris Pichler reads from the words of Mozart’s father and his sister describing the rapid progress made by the little genius. Florian Birsak and his string ensemble play works that illustrate how Mozart’s creative accomplishments gradually developed in maturity – up to the great Piano Quintet in G minor, which he wrote when his own son Carl Thomas was one year old.
