As one of the most renowned festivals of its kind, Innsbruck’s Festival of Early Music attracts the most illustrious artists of the early-music scene. In addition to many original-instrument ensembles, opera stars such as Jennifer Larmore and countertenor Derek Lee Ragin also make appearances.
The festival is accompanied by a varied supporting programme. Backstage events provide a glimpse behind the scenes, and at the lunchtime concerts in the Hofgarten visitors can eat and drink while enjoying the music. Festive music fills the city’s squares, just as it did in the days of the Tirolean archdukes. And the golden age of the Renaissance is brought back to life during the Castle Fest at Ambras Castle.
