SHMF announces first concerts of the upcoming festival season (July 3 to August 29) in advance: Concerts by Giora Feidman, Katharina Straßer, the Philharmonix, Mnozil Brass, Lucas and Arthur Jussen, Bodo Wartke and Faltenradio are now on sale. Tickets for the music festivals in the countryside are also avaliable now. Advance sales start today, 27th of November, for members of the SHMF e.V. and Thursday, December 3rd, for all other festival friends.

All concerts, which are now on sale, take place open air. In addition, the SHMF's hygiene concept, which already proved its worth last summer, will be employed. The safety of the audience, the artists and the team has top priority.

The Ensemble Philharmonix consists of members of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, among others. They play music that is currently not to be found in the repertoire of their large top orchestras - including their own arrangements in which they cross genre boundaries. The Philharmonix has also taken on the SHMF-focused composer Franz Schubert and play their version of the famous string quartet "Death and the Maiden", in which they experiment with sound aesthetics. With their new programme the musicians will be on stage in Kiel, Norderstedt and Pronstorf.

A pianist duo also pays tribute to the composer retrospective: The Dutch Lucas and Arthur Jussen, 24 and 27 years old, are guests at the SHMF for the first time and place Franz Schubert at the centre of their programme in Plön and Rellingen. Regardless of their young age, the brothers are attracting international attention.

The Austrian brass ensemble Mnozil Brass presents a musical cabaret of traditional brass music, pop, jazz, pop, opera and operetta. The seven musicians present their new programme "Phoenix" in Kiel and Norderstedt.

For over a decade, the Austrian ensemble "Faltenradio" around the clarinettist Matthias Schorn has been delighting audiences with alpine folk music combined with swing, jazz and classical music. The "Faltenradio", a Styrian harmonica, is also used at the concerts. The new programme of the four clarinettists "Landflucht" is performed in Rellingen and Plön.

The 84-year-old clarinettist Giora Feidman is considered a legend on his instrument. A welcome guest at the SHMF, Feidman and his trio are celebrating the 100th birthday of his Argentinean compatriot: "Happy Birthday Astor Piazzolla - Klezmer meets Tango" is the title of the programme to be heard in Elmshorn and Altenhof.

With concerts in Altenhof and Elmshorn Bodo Wartke also returns to the festival. In his sixth piano cabaret programme "Wandelmut" the chansonnier tells of wise and wrong decisions, of love and of small and big missteps.  With casual nonchalance he combines virtuosity with clever humour.

The Tyrolean actress and singer Katharina Straßer gives a deep insight into the Austrian soul in her stage programme.True to the theme "Austria for beginners" not only evergreens of the cabaret legend and Grand Dame of Viennese chanson Cissy Kraner will be performed, but Katharina Straßer also invites you to a musical tour through 50 years of Austropop. The programme will be presented in Haseldorf and Kappeln.

Tickets for the music festivals in the countryside can now be ordered: On five weekends in July and August the most beautiful estates in Schleswig-Holstein will open their doors again and become an idyllic scenery for concerts, picnics and walking acts. Next year, the estates in Hasselburg, Stocksee, Pronstorf, Emkendorf and Wotersen will be part of the festival.

An overview of the concerts can be found here.
