Rosendal Chamber Music Festival 10-13 August 2017

Following the huge success of the first Rosendal Chamber Music Festival, which takes place in an idyllic and remote valley in the Hardanger Fjord in west Norway, Leif Ove Andsnes announces the programme for the festival’s second year with a celebration of the chamber music of Mozart.

Joining Leif Ove Andsnes on stage in August are Kristian Bezuidenhout (fortepiano) and Francesco Piemontesi (piano), Swedish artists Anne Sofie von Otter (mezzo- soprano) and Martin Fröst (clarinet), Mizuho Yoshii (oboe), Audun Halvorsen (bassoon), José Vicente Castelló (French horn), as well as long time chamber music partners, Tabea Zimmermann (viola) and siblings Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff (violin and cello) who will also perform with quartet partners Elisabeth Kufferath (violin) and Hanna Weinmeister (viola).

The Rosendal Chamber Music Festival extends deep thanks to the Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Foundation, whose meaningful financial support has made the festival’s ambitious artistic goals attainable.
