Musikdorf Ernen | The Magic or the Festival History | Part 1

In 1887, in the very small, yet magical municipality of Ernen in the Swiss Alps, the great Hungarian Pianist Gyrgy Sebök founded a chamber music festival. Since then, in August every year, a special and inspiring meeting for chamber music takes place. Performing musicians, composers, and an audience of nature and music lovers from around the globe meet. Affinity with nature, profound music and the exchange of ideas are the focus. In the beautiful Church of Ernen are 5 chamber music concerts and 2 orchestral concerts to be heard, as well as many rehearsals and lectures. The cellist Xenia Jankovic has been the artistic director of the festival since 2008.
