    artists include Till Brönner, Nils Landgren, Renaud Garcia Fons & Antonio Sanchez

    Since 1998 Schloss Elmau has played host to over 2000 jazz concerts from the hottest international artists, establishing it as a key venue on the jazz circuit. On thousands of occasions the beautiful Al Camino Bar has become a jazz lounge for the most outstanding up and coming jazz musicians. Alongside the jazz greats, Till Brönner and Nils Landgren, other top acts have been announced for this year's festival, including the unique French bassist Renaud Garcia Fons with his trio and the highly-acclaimed Mexican drummer, omnipresent on the New York scene, Antonio Sanchez.

    "Nightfall"

    "With this project I realized a long-cherished dream of mine", says Till Brönner about "Nightfall" with pieces from Leonard Cohen to the Beatles. It's the trumpeter's first collaboration with bassist Dieter Ilg - even though their musical formation seems so natural and familiar to the listener, as if it had always existed. "Nightfall" is both the debut of their collaboration and the result of an intense collaboration between two great storytellers.

    Renaud Garcia-Fons Trio

    David Venitucci, accordion | Renaud Garcia-Fons, bass | Stephan Caracci, vibraphone, drums

    The "Paganini of the double bass", Renaud García-Fons, is one of the most extraordinary musicians of the jazz and world music scene. As one of the most virtuoso double bassists of our time, the Frenchman of Spanish origin "surpasses on the five-string [...] everything that seemed possible in jazz to date 'con arco' on the double bass," praised Martin Kunzler in the 2002 edition of the Jazz-Lexikon.

    Joachim Kühn Trio Beauty & Truth

    Joachim Kühn, piano | Chris Jennings, bass | Eric Schaefer, drums

    Joachim Kühn is one of the few German world stars of jazz. With his category-defying playing, the pianist distinguishes himself as a world-class musician. In contemporary jazz he has already left his mark and broken new ground. A musical citizen of the world, Kühn sees himself committed to the tradition of jazz, as well as to European concert music, but also to a contemporary language of sound. For the programme "Beauty & Truth" he has selected old, well-known and unusual pieces and recorded them in the new trio: "After many years I am returning to the classical piano trio. With Eric and Chris I have found a new dream team. It's very inspiring to play with them."

    Coulibaly - Lauer - Landfermann

    Moussa Coulibaly, balafon, ngoni, vocals, percussion | Johannes Lauer, trombone, percussion | Robert Landfermann, bass

    Moussa Coulibaly is a griot musician who grew up in a small village in Burkina Faso. He plays a variety of percussion and string instruments, sings, writes poetry and composes. Johannes Lauer's work ranges from New Orleans jazz to avant-garde, contemporary classical and experimental pop music and traditional music from Peru, Colombia, Brazil and the Alpine country. A close connection to the music of West Africa was formed during a six-month stay in Mali in 2008. Robert Landfermann is one of the most sought-after jazz musicians in Germany. His playing is documented on 80 CDs.

    Nils Landgren & Trio

    Nils Landgren, trombone, vocals | Lisa Wulff, bass | Eric Staiger, piano | Silvan Strauss, drums

    There is a synonym for the words versatility and curiosity: Nils Landgren. "Mr. Red Horn" - as he is called because of his red trombone - swings virtuously from perspective to perspective - also because he needs constant change. As a trombonist, singer, producer and entertainer, he is one of the most creative and successful figures on the European music scene.

    Antonio Sánchez & Migration Lines in the Sand

    Thana Alexa, vocals | Chase Baird, sax | John Escreet, keys | Orlando le Fleming, bass | Antonio Sánchez, drums

    The four-time Grammy Award winner Antonio Sanchez is one of the most important drummers and composers in the jazz world, as legends such as Pat Metheny, Chick Corea and Gary Burton confirm. As a bandleader, the drummer, who comes from Mexico and lives in New York, has been on the road for several years on all the major stages. With his top-class band Migration he brings pulsating jazz to Schloss Elmau.

    triosence

    Bernhard Schüler, piano | Omar Rodriguez Calvo, bass | Tobias Schulte, drums

    Ob in Brasilien, Taiwan oder in den USA - überall, wo die drei Musiker von triosence bislang aufgetreten sind, ließ man ein begeistertes Publikum zurück. Die Band hat einen unverwechselbaren Stil entwickelt, den sie selbst als songjazz bezeichnet. Die Melodie betonte Mischung aus Jazz, Fusion, Folk und World überzeugt nicht nur Kenner sondern auch jene, die mit Jazz bislang wenig anfangen konnten.

    Works composed and arranged by Morten Kargaard

    A fresh, new wind of today's contemporary music - a true hybrid of elements from classical and rhythmic music traditions occurs when these top musicians from both worlds meet in an innovative collaboration. The music, written by Morten Kargaard, highlights elements such as playfull rhythms, transparent lightness, exquisite dynamics, and pulls them all into a single expression. Performed by an unusual, new group of carefully selected instruments that makes the music come alive and breathe together. Music that creates a timeless atmosphere without preferences, and places itself in the middle of the oasis between the known and the unknown. All musicians are known for their accomplishments in different fields; from the DR Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Phil, Egberto Gismonti, each with a personal tone and an open minded approach to new music.

    COSMOS
    Arrangements of works by Beethoven

    "There is a genuine historical link between Beethoven and Indian culture: in search of the depth of this culture and fascinated by the translation of mystical Indian texts (the Upanishad), which was released in 1816 in Germany, Beethoven immersed himself in these texts and even wrote a Brahmanic Indian poem in his notebooks to put it to music.This relationship has never been explored in concert but recognized by the famous musicologist J.S.Shedlock in 1926. For Shani Diluka, originally from the Indian continent and from the German Piano School (teaching by Fleisher / Schnabel, Perahia / Schenker and Pressler), this link between Beethoven and India makes perfect sense. Beethoven has always been in perpetual pursuit of elevation and this search in Indian mystical lands is quite exceptional. A magnificent lesson of humanity and universality that shows that Beethoven, many centuries ago, looked at the East or the "stranger" as a sign of enrichment, inspiration and fraternity. This is the goal of this project through the great Beethovenian ideals. "
