Visitors enjoy a varied programme, from the award ceremony of the “Goldener Bogen” (golden bow) during the Meiringen Music Festival
to the Swiss Chamber Music Festival in Adelboden
. The event in Adelboden is very much influenced by the “Orpheus Competition”, which honours the best chamber music ensembles. Symphony orchestras, modernised versions and classical concerts bring a bit of variety to the noble type of music. In Gstaad, fans of classical music even get to gather twice a year thanks to the Gstaad Menuhin Festival & Academy
and the Sommets Musicaux
. The village of Wengen has decided to focus its classical programme entirely on Mendelssohn
to pay tribute to his achievements as conductor and representative of the early Romantic Era. Thun
create a festive atmosphere with their castle concerts.
