Tirol Festival Erl

Erl, 20.06.2020 - 02.08.2020

The annual Tirol Festival of Erl has invested this tiny Tirolean resort with the status of an international venue for lovers of classical music. New festival artistic director in 2020 is Bernd Loebe.

From June 20 to August 02, 2020 the annual festival will present a rich and varied program of contemporary compositions, chamber concerts and operas. The Tirol Festival Erl will officially be opened on July 09, 2020 with Johannes Brahms and Alexander Skrjabin. The prestigious festival has held many premieres since it started in 1998. Another premiere this year will be a special version of Wagner’s “Lohengrin” opera under the baton of Swiss conductor Titus Engel. Another highlight of this year’s event will be Engelbert Humperdinck’s opera “The King's Children”.

Moreover, the 2020 Tirol Festival Erl celebrates the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven in collaboration with Camerata Salzburg. All of his five piano concerts will be played by highly acclaimed piano player Paul Lewis, along with Symphonies No. 4 and No. 5. Plus, the program will feature works by Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Gustav Mahler, Jazz by Christian Mythspiel and Orjazztra Vienna as well as performances by Franui and Edith Wien’s International Master Singer Academy.

Since its beginnings in 1998, the Tirol Festival Erl has developed into an internationally recognized event, drawing music lovers from across Europe as well as the USA and Japan. An extraordinary new structure was built as an addition to the traditional Passion Play House in 2012. With a design full of sharp angles and straight lines, this visually stunning building rises from the ground as if it was a mirage and draws both architecture and music lovers to Erl in droves.
