38th International Jazzfestival 2017

37 Concerts and 2 new venues

The International Jazzfestival brings contemporary and experimental sounds to the heart of the Salzburger Steinberge, and has been celebrating its 38th anniversary from 24 to 27 August 2017. A total of 37 concerts were played on seven venues and four stages.

The event was officially opened on Friday evening at the Mainstage of the Congress House. Director Mario Steidl, together with Michaela Mayer, presents the opening project to an Austrian musician or an Austrian musician. This year, this honorary saxophonist Gerald Preinfalk and his neoclassical ensemble of the "Prine Zone. This year, the Jazzfestival Saalfelden was able to welcome not only a large number of visitors but also a few honored guests: Federal Chancellor Mag. Christian Kern, State President Dr. Wilfried Haslauer, Deputy Chairman of the Landeshauptmanns Astrid Rössler, Walter Steidl and Mayor Erich Rohrmoser enjoyed the concerts on Friday evening. The experimental soul of the four festival days represented the shortcuts at the Kunsthaus Nexus. They are a decoupling of the main concerts and prove how multifaceted Jazzmusik can be. Great musicians like the bassist Manu Mayr, saxophonist Briggan Krauss or the David Helbock Quartet were enthusiastic about the jazz fans with slanting tones and free improvisation. In addition to the mainstage and shortcut concerts, there were also a number of free stages. Since this year, the NEXUS + stage has also been an integral part of the Jazzfestival program. These concerts were particularly popular with the young audience and also took place free of charge. In addition to the popular 5 / 8erl in Ehr'n, Yasmo & the Klangkantine, Café Drechsler, the Express Sketches as well as the Wortklauberei, which aroused with a Poetry Slam for the thought.
