We are pleased to announce that Nicolas Altstaedt has won the prestigious Beethoven Ring 2015!
Congratulations to Nicolas Altstaedt, on being awarded the Beethoven Ring 2015. He was been chosen by written votes from the 1500-strong members called "citizens for Beethoven", out of the five youngest soloists who appeared at this year's Beethovenfest in Bonn and performed a major work by the composer.
The announcement of the festival stated that Nicolas Altstaedt was chosen because of his extraordinary interpretations of both classical and new compositions, reflecting Beethoven's own strive for pushing musical boundaries.

Founder of the Festival, Josef Herowitsch died

With deep sorrow, the Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festival announces the death of the founder of the festival, Msgr. Geistl.Rat Prof. Josef Herowitsch. As pastor of Lockenhaus, he founded the festival in 1981 together with Gidon Kremer, and acted as its organisational leader for 30 years. Without his initiative, support and enthusiasm, the festival would not have come to life. Since 2012, Josef Herowitsch was the festival's honorary president.

You can find the obituaries of Gidon Kremer and Peter Cossé in the "Josef Herowitsch" menu point under "LOCKENHAUS".

We take part from Josef Herowitsch on the following dates:
