The popular picnic concerts of Damtschach Castle, featuring the Prisma Ensemble, are dominated by Beethoven this year. After the two previous seasons focused on Haydn and Mozart, the time has come to turn to the third key composer of the Vienna Classic period. Thus, the Prisma Ensemble consistently goes their own way – it has been a long-standing wish of Thomas Fheodoroff, founder and conductor of the ensemble, to explore the universe of Beethoven’s works with the musicians. Moreover, the agile period instrument Ensemble Prisma will play veritable chamber music gems, such as Mozart’s clarinet quintet and Schubert’s quintet in a variety of arrangements. An entirely new work by Daniel Serrano, winner of the Fheodoroff composer prize, will be performed for the first time on the day.
