History

In the year 1963, to celebrate the 600th anniversary of Tyrolean apartenage to Austria, the Innsbruck musician Prof. Otto Ulf (1907 - 1993) presented the first Ambras Castle Concert, and every August since 1976 Innsbruck with its Festwochen has been a mecca for Early Music fans. Famous conductors such as René Jacobs, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, John Eliot Gardiner and Alan Curtis have performed here, opera stars such as Jennifer Larmore and the counter-tenor Derek Lee Ragin have enthralled audiences, musicians such as Jordi Savall and Sigiswald Kuijken have given spellbinding concerts in Innsbruck.

Since 2010 Alessandro De Marchi is the new artistic director of the Festival and took over this position from René Jacobs.
