Rosendal Chamber Music Festival

10 – 13 August 2017

Leif Ove Andsnes, Artistic Director

Four Days of Musical Paradise

he first Rosendal Chamber Music Festival is over and I am overwhelmed at the quality of performances, the magnificent new concert hall (Riddersalen) and the impact of Schubert`s deeply touching music.  I would like to thank all of our guest musicians for their commitment and enthusiasm which was shared by audiences and journalists alike.  The whole festival atmosphere was a dream come true and even the rain couldn’t dampen our spirits!

Later this season we will announce the programme for next year but meanwhile we hope that you are able to mark the dates in your diary and join us for the second Rosendal Chamber Music Festival which will take place from 10-13 August 2017.

Leif Ove Andsnes

“This is a Utopian place for Utopian musicians.”

The Arts Desk, UK

“Rosendal simply must be experienced!”

Klassik Radio, Austria

 “The intensely beautiful landscape of the stately Rosendal Barony was filled with music. And not just any music, but with chamber music of the highest level.”

Dagbladet, Norway

“With the new hall and Andsnes’ impetus and stardom, the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival has got off to a flying start.”

Aftenposten, Norway

“The Rosendal Festival sold all of its tickets in a just a few days over the winter. The recipe is simple: core chamber music programming, no pandering to appeal and with bold touches of contemporary music.”

Vårt Land, Norway

“With the Rosendal Chamber Music Festival Leif Ove Andsnes has set a standard that – already in its opening year – has established itself as one of the most important events of its kind. The high sky expectations were supremely rewarded.”

Klassisk Music Magzaine, Norway

“In addition to the intelligence of its programming and the high level of its performers, the festival benefits from what is often lacking in the most exclusive of locations: authenticity and atmosphere –  truly magical.”


“A festival that is both intimate and full of character, idyllic and with depth.”

Bayerische Rundfunk
