Open Classics on the Rhein — Notte Italiana
On August 12 and 13, the Hochrhein Music Festival is organizing the first edition of the open-air festival "Open Classics am Rhein" on the Rhein Inseli (small island) between Rheinfelden/Switzerland and Rheinfelden/Germany. The Inseli, which can be reached from the bridge between the two Rheinfelden, represents the geographical border between the two cities and the countries. This unique location in the middle of the Rhein and the natural limitation of the playable area make the place an ideal open-air stage. The combination of classical music and the direct experience of nature will ensure unforgettable concerts at the Open Classics am Rhein. The motto of the concerts is "Longing for Italy."
On this Saturday evening, the Kammerorchester Basel, along with violinist Bomsori Kim and mandolinist Avi Avital, will be playing works by Antonio Vivaldi, Ottorino Respighi, Giuseppe Tartini, Niccolò Paganini, Giacomo Puccini, and Hugo Wolf. The concert will be accompanied by varied culinary offers, which are provided on the Rhein bridge two hours before the start of the concert and during the break.
Tickets are CHF 39-79.
