The familiar and the unknown, the innovative and the traditional meet at the Carinthian Summer, whose goal it is to break free from the constraints of the conventional music repertoire. That new music, if perfectly played, has the ability to captivate audiences, as is demonstrated each year by the Carinthian Summer. Austrian premières, composers in residence, and – as a central element of the festival – the performance of a different church opera each year testify to the passion for innovation and experimentation that characterize this festival. Founded in 1969, the Carinthian Summer has a knack for skilfully mixing the familiar with the unfamiliar, and it is not unknown for a tango to find itself paired with a traditional Austrian folk song. For the festival organizers, the dialogue between composers, performers, and audiences is a vital factor, as are the classes and events for and with children. Dare to be diverse this year at Carinthian Summer!
