Lech Classic Festival
Classic concerts during a summer holiday in Lech
Fans of classical music have every reason to be cheerful at the start of August in Lech am Arlberg. After all, that is when the new church in Lech is wholly devoted to classical music. Concerts by international renowned musicians, as well as the Festival Orchestra and Festival Choir, specifically put together for the event, provide six full days of a highly cultural programme of events. One that is far removed from the mundane.
The event location of Lech also provides really special cultural delights. The breath-taking mountain backdrop is a unique companion for the resonant sounds.
A special classical festival
Since its founding in 2012 by Marlies Wagner Artist's Management team, the festival in Lech, which started off small initially, has made a name for itself well beyond the region. The concerts bring together local people, people from near-by areas and guests in the Arlberg, all of whom share one thing – a passion for classical music. Works ranging from Viennese classics to outstanding compositions from the Romantic and Late Romantic eras can be heard. Each year a measured selection is made, and gems from musical history that are often ignored are often performed. The pieces are presented as part of gala concerts as a series of musical highlights. There is a specific theme each evening.
International soloists and up and coming artists
Every year international soloists are invited by Lech Classic Music association. Accompanied by the orchestra they bring wonderful sounds to New Church Lech. Up and coming pianist Elisa Wallnöfer, orchestra leader Martin Emmerich, violinist Edwin E.S. Kim and Ain Anger on bass, have already been part of the proceedings.
Tickets for the Lech Classic Festival
The concerts start at 5 p.m., with the cash desk opening half an hour before the start.
After the concerts everyone meets up to enjoy a convivial close to the proceedings in the bar in the Romantic Hotel Krone. Give your holiday in the Arlberg a musical note. Along with classical music, a music-filled summer in Lech also features top-notch Jazz concerts during Jazzbühne Lech, which his held a week later.
