Ouverture spirituelle · Lacrimae
Since 2012, Ouverture spirituelle, which takes place during the first few days of the Salzburg Festival, has been dedicated to the centuries-old tradition of sacred music. Though consistent with the series’ own theme, the content of these concerts is also closely related to that of the overall Festival program.
