Lockenhaus has been inviting people to a large chamber music festival for 40 years

In Burgenland, music weeks of a special kind have been held for forty years. Without fees and constraints, the sometimes irrepressible pleasure in the game is lived out here.

When interpreting Iannis Xenakis’ “Aroura”, one in Lockenhaus feels surrounded by gigantic insects.

The much-invoked spirit of Lockenhaus is still alive today: interpreters who are friends come together in this “oasis”, as Gidon Kremer calls the chamber music festival he founded. They refresh themselves with the irrepressible desire to return to the origin of their profession. Without a fee and without the usual constraints and routines of the classical music business, they immerse themselves deeply in the music.
