    Works by Bach, Hildegard von Bingen et al.

    “His reputation as a guitarist is almost mystical” (New York Times)

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    “His reputation as a guitarist is almost mystical,” says the New York Times about Habib Koité, “he combines rock and classical techniques with Malian tunings that make the guitar sound like a kora or n'goni.” It is mainly because of his rousing live performances that he has become one of the great stars of world music: a musician and storyteller who makes his musical roots accessible to a wide audience with charisma and skill.

    Author's reading & discussion

    Thomas Hüetlin
    “Berlin, 24. Juni 1922”

    "Rathenau and Hitler have been the two phenomena that have provoked the imagination of the German masses to the utmost: the one by his incomprehensible culture, the other by his incomprehensible meanness" (Sebastian Haffner).

    With Rathenau, German history would have taken a different course, but his assassination on 24 June 1922 robbed the country of this highly gifted Jewish bourgeois who was committed to peace and economic cooperation. Journalist and bestselling author Thomas Hüetlin resurrects the tragic events - and draws parallels to the present. "A brilliantly narrated book of our time" praises the Süddeutsche Zeitung, "a fulminant reportage" the ZEIT.

    Excerpts from Malakoff Kowalski's own compositions “Piano Aphorisms”, “Onomatopoetika” und “My First Piano”

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    Pianist and composer Malakoff Kowalski is – as Igor Levit puts it: “Brilliant. Brave, naked, intense, raw. Ultimately, that's what real art is about: when the artist talks about himself and the listener feels he's hearing his own story.” Kowalski makes you fell like home. Somewhere sacred between classical, jazz and theater.

    „Fluchtpunkte der Erinnerung. Über die Gegenwart von Holocaust und Kolonialismus”

    Moderation: Michael Wolffsohn

    What distinguishes racism and anti-Semitism? About the relationship between the Holocaust and the Crimes of Colonialism.

    in German

    Internationally, the relationship between colonial crimes and the Holocaust has long been debated. Are Jewish victims favored in memory over African victims? The debates surrounding the Humboldt Forum are now also forcing Germany to confront its colonial past. What distinguishes racism from anti-Semitism? Will it ultimately be possible to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and colonialism without relativizing history?

    Stephan Malinowski
    “Preußen, die Hohenzollern und die Nazis”

    Alexander Gorkow, writer and head of the feature section of the Süddeutsche Zeitung, introduces the book and the author.

    in German

    The devil and the nobility only exist if you believe in them, said the romantic revolutionary Heinrich Heine. After 1918, there was neither monarchy nor nobility in Germany - but did the Hohenzollerns become Hitler's stirrup holders? And what has been the truth since then about the German myth of the “king sleeping in the mountain”? Stephan Malinowski, one of Germany's leading historians and professor at the University of Edinburgh, published the “non-fiction book of the year” (SZ) with his “groundbreaking” (FAS) study “Die Hohenzollern und die Nazis” 2021.

With an average of 120 concerts a year, it is one of the busiest big bands in Europe and brings together jazz fans and dance fans with “power of sound, groove and enormous stage presence” (FAZ) like probably no comparable ensemble currently. Groove with brains, electro with horns, jazz in a frenzy.

    „Ich schreibe Filme.
    Ingmar Bergmans Arbeitstagebücher 1955-2001“

    Renate Bleibtreu, Übersetzerin & Herausgeberin
    Jens Harzer, Lesung & Gespräch

    Im Anschluss an die Lesung wird Ingmar Bergmans Film „Wilde Erdbeeren“ gezeigt.

    Sein langes kreatives Leben über führte Ingmar Bergman Arbeitstagebücher: kleine Spiralhefte, in denen er erste Entwürfe seiner Geschichten niederschrieb und auch während der Arbeit an einem Film oder Buch weiter Notizen machte. Diese Auswahl aus den Heften bietet nun einen einzigartigen Einblick in seinen kreativen Arbeitsprozess, zeigt aber auch den Menschen und Künstler Bergman noch einmal ganz neu. Es ist nicht zuletzt ein Bericht darüber, wie ein großer Künstler seine unvergesslichen Geschichten und Bilder zum Leben erweckt.

    „Persona“
    von Ingmar Bergman

    Juliane Köhler und Evgenia Dodina in einer Inszenierung von Amélie Niermeyer

    Gastauftritt. Mit freundlicher Genehmigung des Residenztheaters.

    Die Schauspielerin Elisabet Vogler ist während einer „Elektra“-Vorstellung plötzlich verstummt. Sie hat seit drei Monaten nicht gesprochen und wird der Pflege einer Krankenschwester anvertraut.
    Zwischen den beiden Frauen, der schweigenden und der sprechenden, entwickelt sich eine intensive Beziehung bis an die Grenzen der absoluten Identifikation, der Identitätsauflösung. Da Elisabet als körperlich und geistig gesund gilt, muss ihr Verstummen als ein willentlicher Akt, als Widerstandshandlung verstanden werden. Das Problem von Sprache als Mittel der Verständigung steht im Zentrum des Films „Persona“ von Ingmar Bergman aus dem Jahr 1966.

    Eigentlich klingt es ganz leicht: Frau ist begabt und klug, also kann sie ganz nach oben kommen. Aber oft genug ist der eine Platz schon besetzt, es scheint nämlich ein dämliches Gesetz zu geben, das lautet: Eine Frau reicht, mehr brauchen wir nicht. Die Komikerin, Schauspielerin und Feministin Carolin Kebekus stellt ihr neues Buch vor - pointiert, unmissverständlich und gleichzeitig urkomisch: Dass die Zeit überreif ist, alte (Männer-) Gesetze auf den Müll zu werfen.

    The new show, not only promises the return of the “Big Hands” and other classics of the duo's penmanship that involve the Russian giant, such as “Rachmaninov by Himself”, but also new mash-ups and songs that will include “They Call Me Sergei” – a humorous autobiographical song about the composer's hardships, and more recent numbers such as “Staying at Home”, blending the music of the Bee Gees with Rachmaninov.

    Franui Musicbanda
    Die Strottern Wienerlied-Duo

    Franzensfeste – eine Schubertiade
    Music by Franui and the Strottern based on Franz Schubert

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    The Musicbanda Franui from the inner alpine region and the duo from the Viennese lowlands have long since agreed on a summit meeting. “Franzensfeste” is the title and it promises to be a great celebration for Franz.
    “Franzensfeste” is the latest in a series of programmes in which the East Tyrolean Musicbanda dedicates itself to classical and romantic composers, including Schubert, Franui's “soul mate”.

    Ulrich Tukur & Christian Redl Rezitation
    Olena Kushpler Klavier
    „Vom Zauber einer verwehenden Sprache –
    Deutsche Gedichte und Balladen“

    Gedichte, Balladen und Texte von Goethe und Schiller über Heine und Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger
    Musik von Schumann, Liszt et al.

    in German

    Ulrich Tukur und Christian Redl wollen an die Anfänge, an den Ursprung von Theater erinnern: Den Text, die Sprache mit der man eine gute Geschichte erzählt. Neben ihren Lieblingsgedichten haben sich beide dazu noch eine fast in Vergessenheit geratene Form ausgesucht: Die Ballade. Wie der Kriminalroman lebt sie von Spannungsmomenten und Knalleffekten. Und wie in diesem verwandten Genre geht es immer um Mord, Ehebruch, Verführung, Kindsmord und unerwiderter Liebe. Nur mit ihrer Stimme und ihrer Mimik zaubern Tukur und Redl mit Texten von Goethe über Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger phantastische Welten auf die Bühne, die, weil es immer um Schicksale von Menschen geht, tief berühren. Die Pianistin Olena Kushpler reagiert am Klavier auf die Texte mit Musikstücken u.a. von Liszt, Satie, Schönberg und Schumann, die oft zeitgleich zu den Gedichten entstanden.

    One of the great voices of Portuguese Fado

    Luís Figueiredo, piano, eletronics
    Bernardo Couto, portuguese guitar

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    Cristina Branco is one of the most important Portuguese voices: countless concerts all over the world and in major concert halls from the Elbphilharmonie to the Vienna Musikverein speak for themselves. Fado is the traditional song of her homeland - and it is, also traditionally, rather melancholy. In her neo-fado, she breaks with this tradition and also sings a lot about the beauties of life. “Fado is like tango”, she says, “the music of those who have a great soul”.
