    Grigory Sokolov piano
    Why you must attend this concert:
    "Among all the pianists who have existed and still exist, Grigory Sokolov is in a category of his own." (Jan Brachmann, FAZ)

    Concert with interval.
    Concert-experienced children aged 10 and above, who can sit still during the concert, are welcome to attend.

    Due to high demand, hotel guests can only be guaranteed a concert visit with prior reservation.


    BOOKING OPTIONS:

    WHITSUN PACKAGE
    arrival Fr, 6th June
    incl. concert ticket, breakfast, spa, yoga and more
    Book your room here!

    The unique character of music played live is a crucial aspect of understanding the expressive beauty and compelling honesty of Grigory Sokolov's art. His poetic interpretations, which come alive with mystical intensity in the concert hall, are based on an in-depth knowledge of the repertoire. His programmes span the entire history of music: from transcriptions of sacred polyphony of the Middle Ages and works by Couperin, Rameau and Bach, to the Classical and Romantic repertoire and key compositions of the 20th century. Now Grigory Sokolov returns to Schloss Elmau – with what is sure to be a compelling and impressive concert evening.

    Building Bridges – Sir András Schiff presents young pianists

    The famous pianist Sir András Schiff presents young pianists at the beginning of a great career. Even after graduating from a renowned music academy, it is not easy for young musicians to position themselves successfully on the music market. Regardless of talent and technical excellence, there is usually a lack of performance practice and important networks. This is where Sir András Schiff's mentoring programme Building Bridges comes in, with which he has been providing targeted and sustainable support for young pianists since 2014.

    Schubert: Rondo A major for 4 hands
    Rachmaninov: Six Morceaux Op 11 for 4 hands

    Dutch duo Lucas & Artur Jussen are among the most sought-after piano duos of our time and are a breath of fresh air in the world's biggest concert halls. With their energetic, almost symbiotic playing, their great refinement of sound and their gripping interpretations, they are celebrated by press and audience alike. “It's like driving two BMWs at the same time,” said conductor Michael Schønwandt about the two pianists after a joint concert.

    Belcea Quartet string quartet
    Quatuor Ébène string quartet
    Why you must attend this concert:
    The two best string quartets in the world united in an octet

    Mendelssohn: String octet
    Enescu: String octet

    Two world-class string quartets: the Quatuor Ébène and the Belcea Quartet are among the best string quartets ever. For this concert, they unite to form an octet and interpret two of the great works for this instrumentation – Mendelssohn's youthful work full of luminous melodic ideas and the darkly glowing, dense work by the nineteen-year-old Romanian Enescu.
