«It takes a combination of nature and art and friendship.»
In 1974 the pianist György Sebök (1922-1999) found in Ernen the ideal place to engage with music. Over the following fifty years, his renowned master classes developed into a unique oasis of culture. The Festival Musikdorf Ernen is distinguished by the outstanding quality of its music making, the ambitious and imaginative programming, and its intimate and welcoming environment. Every summer, the mountain village of Ernen transforms itself into a cultural kaleidoscope: exciting concerts, master classes, innovative art, readings, and a writing workshop attract artists and audiences from all over the world. The Musikdorf becomes a meeting place. Between inspiration and relaxation. Innovation and originality. Food and drink. Sound and silence. Ernen is enriching - it is quality of life.
Only the best for you.
The musical summer is saved. On May 27th, the Federal Council announced that events after June 6th for up to 300 people will again be permitted. Now nothing stands in the way of the Festival Musikdorf Ernen, as we confidently look forward to the upcoming concert season in this challenging year!
The festival will take place almost entirely as planned. Due to these new federal regulations, we have decided after all to present each concert just once, without interval. We will adhere to the new safety regulations with reduced audience density - your health is at all times our priority! Please note that the programmes in the series «Chamber music compact» and «Chamber music plus» have been redesigned.
As the concert introductions in the Tellensaal will not be possible this year, there will instead be online introductory videos for the piano and chamber music plus concerts, while the baroque concerts will be presented by the musicians from the stage.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Music Village Ernen this summer!
