Bruckner Lives!, the voestalpine Klangwolke musical event, took place on September 7, 2013, attracting 110,000 visitors to Linz’s Danube Park where they experienced a breathtaking light and laser show and wonderful dance performances.
After the official welcome given by voestalpine CEO Wolfgang Eder and Hans-Joachim Frey, artistic director of the LIVA, the voestalpine Klangwolke 2013 commenced at 20:45. The focus of the production was Linz’s own Anton Bruckner, the composer who conquered the international music world. Following the script written by Oliver Spiecker, Harald Serafin, taking the part of Anton Bruckner together with dancer Markus Eggensperger and accompanied by 75 other dancers, brought the musical genius to life. The dancing itself was the work of internationally-renowned choreographer Marc Bogaerts, and the performance was directed by Titus Vadon.
The musical accompaniment to the voestalpine Klangwolke 2013 was produced by Parov Stelar and sound designer Peter Kreuzer. The soundtrack includes thrilling sequences from Bruckner’s work together with the unmistakable sounds of Parov Stelar.
Exclusive voestalpine employee area
voestalpine is the main sponsor of the Linz Klangwolke. From the beginning, the company has been actively involved in the production, creating the voestalpine Klangwolke tram, the installation at Linz’s Tabakfabrik and the “Dancing Flashlight” in Linz’s main square. 800 voestalpine employees from ten company sites in Austria and six other countries enjoyed the excellent support program which included factory tours, a visit to voestalpine Stahlwelt and a wonderful premiere—the voestalpine Stahlwert was linked to the Tabakfabrik Linz by two shuttle trains for the first time. Our employees were able to enjoy their evening at the voestalpine Klangwolke 2013 from the comfort of our own exclusive employee tent, the “voestalpine area”.
