Midsummer's Music will present their 29th season of chamber music in the Door County area of Wisconsin.  The theme this year is "Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Much, Much More," with music from not only those composers, but also Brahms, Schubert, Schumann and others.

Classiclectic host Kurt Hauswirth spoke with the festival's founder Jim Berkenstock (who is also the Artistic Director) about what audience members can expect this year:

Gernot Wolfgang is a composer, born in Austria, who moved to Los Angeles with dreams of becoming a film composer.  He started his life in Austria in the jazz scene, but also began composing.  Over the years, he became well-versed in jazz, chamber music, and film score music; his newest album, "Vienna and the West," reflects this background through his compositional output.

Classiclectic host Kurt Hauswirth had an opportunity to speak with Gernot on the phone about his new collection, dubbed "Groove Oriented Chamber Music."
