36th International Jazzfestival 2015
Melodies with flexibility and style at the Jazzfestival
For the 36th time, musicians and visitors from around the world came together at the International Jazzfestival Saalfelden. No two concerts were alike. An Austrian group traditionally opens the concert series, which took place at the main stage of the Congress Saalfelden. This year, and for the first time, a woman had this honour. Viennese artist Maja Osojnik, who also has Slovenian roots, got proceedings off to a good start. With bright, electronic tones, she impressed the crowd of 700 with her fantastic voice. The free concerts that took place on Alpine pastures and at the Citystage featured not only fantastic jazz, but also bright sunshine and an enthusiastic atmosphere. 162 artists performed over the weekend.
