The Klanglabor is a concept for visionary training for young musicians that was brought to life by Daniel Geiss, the musical director of the Brixen Classics, and has been applied in projects all over the world. The core of the concept is that music is communication without words, and therefore many of the most important technical and musical basics can be passed on in the simplest and most effective way through playing. For this reason, Daniel Geiss works on his projects with voice leaders from leading orchestras.
For the Klanglabor@BrixenClassics there will be a first-class collaboration: musicians from the Bavarian Radio (concertmaster Stanko Madic), the Deutsche Oper Berlin (solo cellist Arthur Hornig), the Belgrade Philharmonic, the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra, as well as pianist Julia Okruashvili (Cologne University of Music) will form the "Brixen Classics Festival Orchestra" under the direction of Daniel Geiss together with academy students selected throughout Europe. Together they will develop the extensive musical programme of the festival, which will feature Wagner's "Flying Dutchman" and orchestral concerts as well as numerous chamber music concerts.
Under the motto "Stars and Education", highly talented students can apply to become academists and play side by side on equal terms with the professionals, making music with world-famous singers such as Piotr Beczala and Camilla Nylund.
