classic

The symphonic programme is the centre piece of the südtirol festival - merano . meran. Here the performance starts already on the subtropical Kurhaus esplanade where festive music is playing while you are walking over the red Kurhaus carpet toward the magnificent Kursaal. The Kursaal is one of the most beautiful concert halls in the Alps which is also why renowned musicians and top music ensembles have been gathering here for over three decades to write musical history.

barocco

The liaison of südtirol festival - merano . meran and baroque music has existed ever since the beginnings of the festival. In the year 2000, in the course of his Bach Cantata Pilgrimage, John Eliot Gardiner performed in the Municipal Parish Church together with the English Baroque Soloists and the Monteverdi Choir; he played Bach cantatas for the Archiv record label of the Deutsche Grammophon. Cecilia Bartoli also visited the südtirol festivall with her Vivaldi programme. Today an entire concert series, held in the most suggestive locations of Merano and environs, is dedicated to barocco.

matinée classique

Refined chamber music in outstanding ambience: on Saturday morning the südtirol festival - merano . meran offers the ideal way to start the weekend.

vox humana

Voices put in perspective: this concert line is dedicated to a-cappella music performed by leading music ensembles from across the world. This is a unique opportunity to experience vocal music in the most impressive locations of Merano and environs, such as the Hall of Knights in Tirol Castle, the Hall of Tableaus in Schenna Castle or the Parish Church in Lana with its spectacular Schnatterpeck altar belonging to one of the main art treasures of South Tyrol’s late Gothic period.

Soirees in Tirol Castle

Every Thursday in mid-summer the ancestral castle of the Counts of Tyrol is brought to life, opening up its doors for music from all the world. The Soirees celebrated their debut in 1990, in occasion of the 850th anniversary of Tirol Castle. Ever since, all major music ensembles have performed here. Today, the Soirees offer all kinds of musical styles, ranging from medieval music to jazz. The premises are unique due to their extraordinary acoustics: the concert hall is set in a free-hanging wooden structure, creating a sound quality, similar to that of a string instrument.
