36th International Saalfelden Jazz Festival
August 27 to 30, 2015
Hand-in-Hand. Saalfelden Jazz Festival and ideenwerk present a new visual leitmotif.
Known as a playground for free spirits, the Saalfelden Jazz Festival has been a fixture on the international jazz circuit for more than three decades. Each year at the end of August, musicians from all over the world gather in the small town of Saalfelden to delight listeners with refreshing and colorful sounds in a magnificent Alpine setting.
From August 27 to 30, 2015, Saalfelden will once again become the center of the European jazz world. Over a period of four days, 32 concerts will take place at seven venues. Once again, artistic directors Michaela Mayer and Mario Steidl have put together a diverse musical program. Slovenian-born artist Maja Osojnik will perform a work especially commissioned by the festival directors. A resident of Vienna, Osojnik draws musical inspirations from jazz, contemporary music, free improvisation, and composition. Over the next few weeks, the organizers will reveal the entire line-up of Osojnik’s band.
Headed by interim president Katharina Auer, the Saalfelden Tourism Board will handle the administration and finances of the festival. Cultural manager Daniela Neumayer will assure that operations run smoothly.
The idea behind Hand-in-Hand, this year’s visual leitmotif:
Dreamed up by the ideenwerk public relations agency, musical hand gestures provide a visual leitmotif for the 2015 festival. These hands symbolize both the individuality of each musician and the genuinely artisan aspects of jazz, a music still played by hand.
