The styriarte Festival was founded in 1985. Johann Sebastian Bach was in the centre of the first Festival programme, later years focused on Monteverdi, Haydn, Schubert, Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn. Since 1992 the styriarte Festival has explored themes like "Summer Night Dream", "Sites and Sounds", "Fractures and Links", "Traces of the Mythical" or "Simply Classical!". In 1998/99, the styriarte Festival launched a new series of themes with "Paradise Lost?" and "Tell me, Love" which culminated in "The power of music" in 2003. In 2004 ("From time to time"), in 2005 ("Sensual") and in 2006 ("Finally happy") the styriarte festival started to question models of world explanation. The following years saw themes dedicated to water (2008), to the dignity of mankind (2009) and now, in 2010, it deals with the “homeland”, focussing, in particular, on the Austrian homeland. In 2011 styriarte took a closer look on “The Difficult Easy” in music. This year the Festival tells a story of “Family People”.
