Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia is proud to announce a prestigious project in collaboration with the 2024 Salzburg Easter Festival, founded in 1967 by Herbert von Karajan, which over the years has seen Berliner Philharmoniker and Staatskapelle Dresden take turns as resident orchestras. The Easter Festival immediately came to the world’s attention for its high prestige and the quality of its artistic offerings. After Karajan, who led the event until his death, the Festival (which had Berliner Philharmoniker as its orchestra in residence from 1967 to 2012) came under the leadership of Claudio Abbado, followed by Simon Rattle. In 2013, Staatskapelle Dresden, conducted by Christian Thielemann, became the Orchestra in residence. With the 2022 edition, the Dresden Orchestra concluded its stay at the Easter Festival which, starting in 2023, will host a different international music institution every year.
