For more than 40 years St. Georgen, in the Attergau region, was home for Nikolaus Harnoncourt. It was also his retreat, the place that provided the atmosphere he needed for his work. Living in a village community is a powerful source of inspiration.

05 March 2016 was a sad day for the classical music world. It was the day Nikolaus Harnoncourt died. Family, close friends and musicians took part, together with the population of St. Georgen, in a touching and dignified requiem in the parish church of St. Georgen followed by a burial in the local cemetery. He was an important figure in the classical music scene.

Inspired by nature and wood
His life was dedicated to the struggle against the casual and the arbitrary. He understood music, nature, and people as parts of a creation greater than all earthly reason. Nikolaus Harnoncourt's life and art was fed by several sources of energy. One of these was his passion for wood. He once said that “In another time I would probably have become a carpenter”. His workshop, in his house, testifies to the highest level of professionalism, where visitors were able to admire wooden chairs, finished and unfinished, with delicate carvings in the backs.

Energy from the Salzkammergut
He was especially at one with nature. It was no coincidence that he chose the Salzkammergut as his source of energy. Even in his eighties he still liked to walk regularly. Earlier in his life, long walks with his family through woods, on mountains, or between springs (carrying water was taboo!), were important sources of energy in Harnoncourt's life. Harnoncourt's believed that “It is only when you have felt at one with nature, when you have breathed in the simplicity, modesty and melancholy of the local area that you can understand how the trio part of a scherzo or a triple-time aria needs to be written”. And, as paradoxical as it may sound, Nikolaus Harnoncourt brought folklore into classical music.

A great visionary, he and his wife Alice founded the Concentus Musicus Wien. He also conducted famous orchestras such as: the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, the Berlin Philharmonic, and the Vienna Philharmonic. He was also the recipient of many top awards and the author of many well-respected books, which have been translated into more than 20 languages. Despite this, he was always a straight forward man and remained faithful to a simple and humble life.

“The most imaginative, open hearted, and soulful in the music world” (Thomas Angyan) - his fire, experienced by musicians, organisers, journalists, and listeners alike, has changed the music world and shaped the tastes of an entire audience. His legacy will survive into the future.

International Nikolaus Harnoncourt Days and Attergauer Culture Summer
Mechthild Bartolomey, the artistic director of the Attergauer Culture Summer, is looking forward to the “International Nikolaus Harnoncourt Days”. Musicians and friends, those who worked with him, and those whose paths he influenced will, under the patronage of Alice Harnoncourt, ensure that his music style and his ideas live on, in concerts, artist talks, and workshops.
