Whitsun Festival 2017

1 to 5 June 2017

Anne-Sophie Mutter meets Daniil Trifonov, Sir András Schiff performs a piano recital, Diana Damrau sings with Nicolas Testé, and we’ll also be treated to Thomas Hengelbrock, Michael Volle, and Le Concert Spirituell under Hervé Niquet – the artists and concerts at the 2017 Whitsun Festival are once again worth a trip to Baden-Baden. Richard Wagner conjured up evocative songs from the Rhine in his “Rheingold”, infusing them with sounds of fire and brimstone – Marek Janowski will be leading a concert performance of the opera, contrasting beautifully with Handel’s celebrated “Water Music” and “Music for the Royal Fireworks” the following day. Tenor Daniel Behle will present songs from his native Hamburg, inaugurating the first of the three master concerts.
