Experience the Audi Sommerkonzerte 2021 live online

Under the concert title "Let's celebrate music!", violinist Lisa Batiashvili, together with the legendary Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia-Roma and music director Sir Antonio Pappano, celebrated the return of culture to the big stage with Audi. The concert, hosted by world-class horn player Sarah Willis, was live streamed from Ingolstadt's Klenzepark on 2 July at 8:30 p.m. (CET). Afterwards, Paul van Dyk, one of the world's best-known DJs, created a perfect crossover between classical and electro with his electronic dance music.

The location of this purely digital concert was also unusual: the EMC hall with its futuristic-looking absorbers, where Audi usually tests all of its vehicles' electronics against electromagnetic waves. Music that crosses borders and connects people in Europe and all over the world through livestream.

Audi Sommerkonzerte bring people together

International artists and classical music bringing people together – that has been the mission of Audi’s summer concerts for over 30 years. Since they began in 1990, the concerts have attracted more than a quarter of a million visitors to the concert halls and transformed Ingolstadt into a festival arena.

 

The Audi Sommerkonzerte embody a leitmotif, and each year something new is created. This year, the overall theme was “Lights of Europe”. Sharing music with people and bringing the international stars of classical music close to the audience. The summer concerts were still able to keep this promise in 2020 despite the pandemic and fulfilled their mission digitally for the first time.

 

We are convinced that music belongs on the stage and to the people, especially in these difficult times. That’s why, under the festival motto “Lights of Europe”, the Audi Sommerkonzerte took place this summer, too. All the concerts were also free of charge. As our artistic director Lisa Batiashvili said: “We need music more than ever. Working with high-calibre artists, we will light up Europe again.”

The artists

Lisa Batiashvili – artistic director and an exceptional talent

“Europe is not only the cradle of classical music, but also a place that is constantly re-inventing itself through the peaceful interaction of different cultures.”

Lisa Batiashvili, Star violinist

There’s no doubt about it, Lisa Batiashvili is one of a select group of world-renowned star violinists. She works regularly with orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Vienna Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra.

 

Since 2019 Batiashvili has been artistic director of the Audi Sommerkonzerte, where at the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, she moved an audience of millions with a digital ‘Solidarity Concert’ held in the press shop at Ingolstadt  In 2020 the festival, under the motto “Together for Music”, was live streamed around the world for the first time.

 

Earlier this year, the star violinist established the LISA BATIASHVILI FOUNDATION with the aim of supporting culture and, above all, talented young musicians from her homeland of Georgia. She recently brought out her album City Lights – a musical journey through eleven cities that have a special significance in her life. Her previous recording, Visions of Prokofiev, won an Opus Klassik Award in 2018 and was shortlisted for the 2018 Gramophone Awards.
