VivaCello Festival 2022 — Cello für Alle (Cello for Everyone)
After a four-year break, the fabulous VivaCello Festival is back! This edition, which is called "Furiant," will take place once again in the old town of Liestal with a total of 13 concerts, including atmospheric morning concerts in the Mooi restaurant, after-work concerts in the Kulturscheune, and symphony and chamber concerts in the Stadtkirche that tell of the rich musical culture of Bohemia. The Bohemian dance "Furiant," which means "enthusiastic," sets the standard for the music and protagonists of this festival that is all about the cello.
Cellists are considered sociable and cool. Nevertheless, they seldom appear in such large numbers as at this opening event of the VivaCello Festival. Many cellists responded to the call to participate in this opening event, and under the baton of Maximilian Hornung, the Stadtkirche Liestal will resound from many hundreds of strings. It’s the Proms and “Die Moldau” on 400 strings, “Bolero,” tango, and comedy.
Tickets are CHF 20 for adults, CHF 10 for students, and CHF 5 for accompanying kids up to age 12.
