The string trio, invented by Mozart, is an even more difficult genre for composers to handle than the string quartet. Classical musical thinking is four-part, which is why the trio is missing a voice, so to speak. This absence has to be dealt with creatively, resulting in highly original masterpieces. Schönberg's late trio is also one of his most important works. Schubert's early trios, on the other hand, are still entirely indebted to Mozart - and here and there also to Rossini, whom the composer so admired.

Can I exchange or return tickets?
Art is dynamic and artists are only people after all – musicians continue their development and rethink their programs, an opera diva can suddenly fall ill… In such cases we do our best to react in an accommodating way, but as a matter of principle, the program and performers are unfortunately subject to change; this is in the nature of things and does not entitle one to a refund of tickets already purchased. In addition to the ticket, we recommend that you purchase ticket cancellation insurance for € 5 per ticket. This insurance allows you to withdraw your ticket purchase in case of illness or accident preventing you from attending.

Where can I park at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden?
Depending on the event and the season, the parking situation at the Festival Hall can be problematic. In order to avoid the traffic rush after events, we recommend rounding out the evening with dinner at the Festival Hall. There are other parking garages nearby (between 5 and 15 minutes walking distance) that are best suited for concerts in the city center. Of these, the Wagener shopping center parking garage is the closest to the Festival Hall.
