Performances in Millstatt and the Salzkammergut Classic Festival
Thomas Hampson returns to the stage this month, with a concert at the Stiftskirche Millstatt, and two performances at the Salzkammergut Classic Festival. Beginning on August 2 in Millstatt, Hampson will perform lieder by Gustav Mahler and Johannes Brahms with pianist Christian Koch, and the Carinthia Chor Millstatt will sing Carinthian songs under the direction of Bernhard Zlanabitnig.
At the Salzkammergut Classic Festival, Hampson will sing a concert with the Orchester Wiener Akademie on August 8 at the Brucknerhaus in Linz featuring works by Beethoven, Schubert, and Offenbach. The performance will also include violinist Benjamin Schmid playing Beethoven’s Concerto for violin and orchestra in D major, op.61. On August 9 at the Trinkhalle Bad Ischl, Hampson and Martin Haselböck, who trades in his baton for the organ, will perform a program of Brahms’ Vier ernste Gesänge, op. 121 and Wolf’s Four Mörike songs for baritone and organ. Completing the program are works by Mendelssohn, Schmidt, Bruckner, and Haselböck.
