Program notes

A towering figure of classical music in the twentieth century—and a titan of the Salzburg Festival, where he conducted more than 350 concerts!—the great Herbert von Karajan took pride in recognizing and fostering young talents. In memory of the maestro and in homage to his enduring artistic legacy, the festival is celebrating its 100th edition by renaming its conducting competition after him: the Herbert von Karajan Young Conductors Award! This year, three rising stars of the conducting world will each have a turn at the podium of the Mozarteum’s Great Hall, leading the Camerata Salzburg in three thrilling concerts, full of fire and passion. This won’t be the last time you see the names of Jonas Ehrler, Luis Toro Araya, and Joel Sandelson on the program...
