They’re everywhere. Angels surround us in people, in nature, in the Christian faith. They convey light, joie de vivre and universal love. In baroque architecture, friendly round faces smile at us from organs and columns, from frescoes and statues. They’re omnipresent in music.

And we have a luminary of baroque music in the form of Dorothee Mields to perform for us. Together with Romina Lischka and Giovanna Pessi, she immerses herself in the world of these divine figures and their influence in heaven and on earth. The intimate hall of Schloss Pielach offers the perfect setting for the jewels of baroque art – and its wall paintings are a treat for the eyes!
