As early as in 1660 music for wind instruments was played on board boats cruising Lake Wörthersee to entertain Emperor Leopold I. Händel staged his Water Music for King George I. with wind instruments galore on the River Thames. Renald Deppe composed a new Water Music for the opening event; musical elements playfully refer to each other like the parts of a mobile. The interaction between the ships slowly gliding along on the water and the music in a marvellous landscape is irresistible – this has not changed a bit over the centuries.
Observation points for the audience are located on the lakesides at Ossiach and Bodensdorf.
With support by Gemeinde Ossiach, Gemeinde Steindorf Bodensdorf, Kärntner Landesfeuerwehrverband.
