In spring 2019, David Holzinger joined the “Beethoven plus Festival” as its artistic project director in Bad Aussee, Styria. The success of the Beethoven Chorus Fantasy, featuring the renowned soloist Ariane Haering under the direction of David Holzinger at the Congress Hall in Bad Aussee led to the artistic connection of the conductor and chairman of the organization “Musikfreunde Inneres Salzkammergut”, Karolos Trikolidis.
As a former scholar of Hans Swarowsky, Tangelwood-Fellow, winner of numerous competitons, winner of the renowned Besancon Conducting Competition – among others, and honorary prize holder of the “Goldenes Ehrenzeichens für Verdienste um die Republik Österreich”, Maestro Trikolidis commits himself tirelessly not only as a conductor but even more so as mentor and teacher to the authentic preservation of our musical heritage.
The artistic collaboration of these two conductors led to the organization of concerts at the “Beethoven plus” summer festival in the geografical middle of Austria with renowned artists such as:
L. v. Beethoven: Mass in C mit der Capella Savaria and the Schola Cantorum Vienna, June 8 2019, St. Paul’s Curch, Bad Aussee
