On the occasion of the christening of Princess Amalia, Crown Princess of the Netherlands, in 2004, the municipality of Scuol and the regional tourism organisation named a nameless mountain after the princess.
The baptism of Piz Amalia was a sign of the close friendship between Switzerland and the Netherlands. In the spirit of this connection between Switzerland and the Netherlands, a young music festival has been held around Piz Amalia every year since autumn 2015. Young musicians from the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, under the direction of Thomas Herrmann, together with the Winterthur Conservatory, under the direction of Valentin Gloor, give a number of concerts at special locations in the mountain world around the Piz Amalia. The artistic director of the festival is Anthony Zielhorst. For this year's festival, two pieces of music were composed especially for this year's festival, which will be performed for the first time.
We are looking forward to the 6th Piz Amalia Music Festival 2020
