Felix Klieser

Felix Klieser is an exceptional artist in several aspects. At the age of 5, he took his first horn lessons, at the age of 13 he enrolled as a junior student at the University of Music and Theater in Hannover. In 2014 Felix Klieser was awarded the ECHO Classic prize in the category best young artist and published an autobiographical book about his fascinating life story. In 2016 he received the prestigious Leonard Bernstein Award of the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.

Highlights of the 2021/2022 season are the beginning of Felix Klieser’s two-year residency with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and his US debut as part of an extensive tour with the Basel Chamber Orchestra and tenor Ian Bostridge in spring 2022. Among others Felix Klieser will be performing with the London Mozart Players at the Enescu Festival in Bucharest and with the Festival Strings Lucerne in the Munich Prinzregententheater. Other highlights of the season are appearances at music festivals such as the Gezeitenkonzert, the Staufener Musikwoche and the Moselmusik festival. Felix Klieser will present his current album Beyond Words with transcriptions of baroque vocal works in several concerts with the CHAARTS Chamber Artists before his new recording with the Zemlinsky Quartet will be released on the Berlin Classics label in early 2022. In December he will be the soloist at this year’s Audi Christmas Concert in Ingolstadt.

In exciting chamber music projects, the young horn player will appear in various line-ups at the Brahmstage Baden-Baden, the Beethovenhaus Bonn, the Schubertiade Hohenems, the Dubrovnik Music Festival and the Heidelberger Frühling. His chamber music partners include the Danish String Quartet, Sebastian Manz, Andrej Bielow, Martina Filjak, Boris Kusnezow, Tanja Tetzlaff, Dag Jensen, Dominik Wagner and Klieser’s long-time piano partner Christof Keymer.

As a member of the project ensemble “The Impossible Orchestra” of the conductor Alondra de la Parra, Felix Klieser will play in the first edition of the Pax Festival in Mexico in the summer of 2022. The cast of the virtual orchestra created during the corona pandemic includes Rolando Villazón, Alisa Weilerstein, Edicson Ruiz, Albrecht Mayer and Maxim Vengerov. In Mexico, the musicians of the “Impossible Orchestra” can be seen live together for the first time after their digital success. The contemporary composer Rolf Martinsson is dedicating a horn concerto to Felix Klieser, which will be premiered and recorded with the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern in spring 2022.

In March 2019 Felix Klieser’s recording of the complete Mozart horn concertos with the Camerata Salzburg (with the label Berlin Classics) was released, represented in the Top 10 of the German classical music charts for 3 months. His debut album Reveries with works for horn and piano, which was released in 2013 and was awarded the ECHO-Klassik, was followed in 2015 by Horn Concertos, Klieser’s first orchestral CD with works by Mozart and the brothers’ Joseph and Michael Haydn, which he performed together with the Württembergisches Kammerorchester Heilbronn under the musical direction of Ruben Gazarian. In September 2017 he published his third CD Horn Trio, recorded with the violinist Andrej Bielow and the pianist Herbert Schuch at the Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) in Munich, on which the horn player not only devotes himself to the profound trio for horn, violin and piano by Johannes Brahms but also to lesser-known works for this exciting line-up.

Christof Keymer

Christof Keymer studied in his hometown of Cologne as a young student with Eckart Sellheim, later with Bernhard Ebert and Bernd Goetzke in Hanover, where he passed the concert exam. He also received pianistic impulses from Vitaly Margulis. He was a guest at festivals such as the Berlin Festival, the Bayreuth Festival and the Lower Saxony Music Days. He made radio recordings for a large number of German broadcasters. Various CD productions document Christof Keymer's work. These include the recording of all of Moritz Moszkowski’s piano transcriptions, published by Berlin Classics, which has received considerable attention in the specialist press and on various European radio stations, and a complete recording of Hermann Goetz’s piano works on two CDs, which was released by cpo in 2014. He has also released numerous chamber music productions, including recordings of the Aura Ensemble, consisting of wind quintet and piano. As editor, Christof Keymer was responsible for a first edition of the previously unprinted piano music by Hermann Goetz in Amadeus-Verlag, which was published in 2014. Christof Keymer is a lecturer in piano at the Hanover University of Music.

New year's concert - Cuartedo Soltango

Iconic Tango from the Golden Age

MARTIN KLETT Klavier und Arrangement

The four of »SolTango« are classically trained musicians who, however, play the tango »as if they were born for it«, as the magazine »The Strad« once wrote about them wrote. Authentic tango with orchestral sound and chamber music esprit - that's what the Cuarteto SolTango stands for. The musicians interpret in the unique line-up Classic tango of the "Golden Era" by Aníbal Troilo, Horacio Salgán, Osvaldo Pugliese and many more in artistic instrumentation by Martin Klett. They have already been heard at the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Rheingau Festival, Heidelberg Spring and concert series of the BR and Deutschlandfunk.


Admission: 7.00 PM
Start: 7.30 PM



Cuarteto Soltango

The Cuarteto SolTango epitomises the next generation of authentic tango, combining the luscious sound of a traditional orquesta típica with the verve of true chamber musicianship. With the unique combination of violin, cello, bandoneón and piano, they connect the Argentine Tango of the „Golden Age“ with the tradition of chamber music concerts. They interpret a wide variety of classic tango styles ranging from icons Aníbal Troilo, Juan D'Arienzo and Lucio Demare right up to the pioneers of the Tango Nuevo, Osvaldo Pugliese and Horacio Salgán, in alluring arrangements by Martin Klett.

Since it was founded in 2008, the quartet was invited to perform repeatedly at the music festivals of Schleswig-Holstein and Oberstdorf, thereby launching their musical brand at outstanding classical venues. Since then, the four have played at a number of international festivals – most recently at the innovative Grachtenfestival in Amsterdam, the Heidelberg Spring and the Studio Concert series at Bavarian Broadcast, Munich.
