Event Davos Klosters
Tastentage Klosters 2023
on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday
The concerts present keyboard musicians, international stars as well as local greats, who play on piano, organ and accordion from folk and world music to jazz and classical music. The motto "Music up close" is no empty phrase, as the concerts take place in small venues where you can literally watch the musicians perform.
The festival will start on Wednesday evening with the young, still unknown pianist Laurent Nicoud, who will open the concert series with his trio in the Kulturschuppen. On Thursday, the second innovation will be "put into operation": the festival center in the old primary school building Klosters Platz. Free concerts will be given there on four evenings at 6 p.m., starting with local drummer Gieri Beivi, who will perform with his trio.
This will be followed in the Kulturschuppen already the first highlight of the festival with the two French world stars Vincent Peirani on accordion and Emile Parisien on tenor sax. Their performance in 2016 will remain unforgettable, the upcoming one is not to be missed!
Good Friday awaits another world star, Latvian accordionist Ksenija Sidorova, one of the leading instrumentalists when it comes to interpreting classical works on the accordion. She has worked with great conductors and orchestras, but also with musicians such as Sting and Herber Pixner. She will perform a program colored by Piazolla pieces at the Atelier Bolt.
The following free concert in the festival center will be performed solo by the young Austrian pianist Martin Listabarth, who knows how to play the classical as well as the jazz keyboard.
For the first time in the history of TASTENTAGE, the largest keyboard instrument, the church organ, will appear in the program on Good Friday evening. Elisabeth Berner knows how to play it virtuously and does this together with the saxophonist Reto Suhner - new beautiful sounds in the church of St. Jakob.
The Frenchman Laurent Nicoud will give a solo concert early on Saturday evening in the festival center, and afterwards the funk-fusioin group "Blizz Rhythmia" will bring the workshop, which has been converted into a concert hall, to a boil.
Easter Sunday afternoon will then bring another world star to the Arena stage, the "Grand Old Lady" of the Hammond organ, Rhoda Scott. She will be accompanied by no less than seven women - the "Lady All Stars" - all of them themselves leaders of their own formations.
The free concert in the Festival Center will be given by the creative Albin Brun and Kristina Brunner, both on the Schwyzerörgeli, he also on the saxophone, she on the cello with tunes from folk and world music. Afterwards, the melodious pianist Martin Listabarth can be heard again in the Kulturschuppen, this time with his trio.
Easter Monday morning belongs to the traditional brunch in the Chesa Grischuna, in the restaurant of course wonderfully accompanied by the duo Brun/Brunner.
The festival closes just as traditionally with the final concert of the workshop that the students of the group "Kanti-s-wings" have completed from Friday to Monday under the direction of saxophonist Lisa Cat-Berro, member of the "Lady All Stars".
Funds for this beautiful festival are always difficult to raise. That is why a donation campaign, a "wemakeit" crowdfunding, will be launched again:
From Friday, Oct. 21, 12 p.m., until Monday, Dec. 5, CHF 20,000 should and must be collected. Tickets and gifts are in store for everyone who takes part in the campaign: www.wemakeit.com/projects/tastentage-klosters-2023
