A frisky faun, a bewitched broom, and a girl-gone-goose! We all remember how lifelike characters like these appeared in our childhood fairy tales. Now, with the help of Debussy, Dukas & Boondiskulchok we bring stories like these to life – and to the stage – with a touch of magic.

About the festival
The Linos Festival is back and the theme this year is Stolen Music. The Linos Piano Trio explores this concept, derived from their transcriptions project, with the scintillating choice of music which has come to be expected from them. Alongside their guests this year Herdís Anna Jónasdóttir (soprano) and Simone von Rahnden (née Jandl - viola), they will navigate a colourful programme of chamber music standards, orchestral works, new music and more, including selected works from the trio’s second studio album “Stolen Music”, which will appear this summer, released by CAvi music and the Bayerischer Rundfunk. The Linos Festival is the only chamber music festival of its kind in Cologne and was founded by the trio in 2019. It is an expression of the musicians’ artistic vision: to expand the borders of classical chamber music as we know and experience it.
