The Enchantment of the Night at Petronell Castle: Cellist Harriet Krijgh Thrills with Virtuoso and Sensitive String Play


On June 1, 2024, the unique “Notturno” gala concert took place at Petronell-Carnuntum Castle, organized by the Haydn Region of Lower Austria.

“The internationally acclaimed Dutch cellist Harriet Krijgh took the stage to shine during the technically demanding 2nd  cello concerto by Joseph Haydn.”

“The romantic ‘Nocturne’ by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, performed by Krijgh, moved the audience so deeply that a profound silence prevailed in the hall long after the last note, before the musicians were celebrated with standing ovations and bravos.”

Don’t miss her next performance on November 16 during a concert by the Hainburg Haydn Society at the Kulturfabrik.
