This year, the International Music Festival Hamburg once again heralds the end of the season.
What had to take place in the digital space in 2021 now returns to the Elbphilharmonie and the Laeiszhalle. For more than a month, from 28 April to 01 June 2022, you can once again experience numerous concert highlights live. The motto of the 6th International Music Festival Hamburg is "Nature". First-class guests will create programmatic highlights and, at the end of the concert calendar, ensure that you are shown the grace of nature before your eyes (and ears).
The 2022 program – these are the themes
This year's International Music Festival will be opened on 28 April by the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra conducted by Alan Gilbert with a performance of Joseph Haydn's "The Creation", taking a look at the bigger picture. The festival, which lasts about four weeks, not only presents a selection of the most beautiful nature compositions, but also ties in with current social discourses, including the environment and climate as the dominant themes of our time.
Other highlights of the festival include Strauss' "Alpine Symphony", presented by the Gewandhaus Orchestra, and a concert performance of Weber's "Der Freischütz" by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra.
