    Author's reading & discussion

    Éric Vuillard reads "Die Tagesordnung"
    Prix Goncourt 2017

    Olga Mannheimer, publicist, moderation
    Reading in German

    February 20, 1933: At the invitation of the Reichstag President Hermann Göring, 24 high-ranking representatives of industry convene a meeting with Adolf Hitler to discuss possible support for National Socialist politics. Vuillard leads the reader into the backrooms of power, where history is written in terrifying randomness. With his own virtuoso urgency and satirical bite, Vuillard dissects the mechanisms of the rise of the National Socialists and makes it clear: The deals that are closed at the round tables of the world are lazy; our understanding of history is based on propaganda images. In "Tagesordnung" Éric Vuillard dissects these images and brings them together in a virtuoso way: a vital book that tells an overdue story and in doing so received the most important French literary prize.

    Robert Nippoldt und das Trio Größenwahn
    "Ein rätselhafter Schimmer: Das Berlin der 20er"

    Robert Nippoldt, live drawings | Lotta Stein, vocals | Christian Manchen, piano | Christoph Kopp, bass

    Artist meets trio. With live drawings, street songs and chansons by Marlene Dietrich, Friedrich Hollaender, the Threepenny Opera and the Comedian Harmonists, Robert Nippoldt and the Trio Größenwahn will take you on a journey through time full of images and sounds. A tempting voice, a fast bass, a swinging piano. This is music your feet want to dance to - and the brushes too! The brushes are led virtuously by Robert Nippoldt and are not the only drawing tools that make their appearance in this special interplay of music and art. With chalk, pencil and ink, the Berlin Palace is rebuilt in a few moments and the Memorial Church gets its roof back. Thanks to the camera and the large projection, the audience is very close to the action. The four artists, dressed in true style, commit themselves to the attitude towards life of a special city during the world wars.

    Discussion in German

    Professor Seeberger, Körber Prize Winner and Director at the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam, addresses the fight against hospital germs and malaria - both major challenges of our time - with a surprisingly simple approach: special sugar structures that soon serve as vaccines. Incidentally, antibiotic resistance as an increasing threat to public health was a key topic during the G-7 summit held at Schloss Elmau in 2015.

    Pablo Held piano
    Robert Landfermann bass
    Jonas Burgwinkel drums

    The Pablo Held Trio is currently one of the liveliest and most significant formations of European jazz. It transcends the boundaries between composition and improvisation by renouncing arrangements, a sequence of themes and a predetermined way of presenting them at concerts. "Investigations" is the title of the new album by Pablo Held and his longtime trio with Robert Landfermann on bass and Jonas Burgwinkel on drums, which will be released in April 2018. With this release, the trio finds a new musical home and begins a new chapter in its remarkable track record. Full of seductive elegance and lyrical sophistication, "Investigations" combines tradition with modernity, the familiar with the unknown and subtlety with passionate energy. After twelve years touring, nine acclaimed records and notable collaborations with jazz greats such as John Scofield and Chris Potter, "Investigations" is the next step.

Their fascination remains unbroken for everyone involved with them. Look forward to a relaxed talk under the motto "Sport meets culture".

    Ganes "an cunta che"

    Elisabeth Schuen, vocals, violin, synth | Marlene Schuen, vocals, violin, bass | Natalie Plöger, vocals, bass

    Ganes have been travelling their musical world together since they were children. The sisters Marlene and Elisabeth Schuen grew up in La Val, an enchanted village in the South Tyrolean Dolomites, Italy. So far away from sizzling cities, so close to the wild, untamed heart of nature. The big world was boxed in a small universe. And it called for each of them, encouraging them to explore it. They became those fairies, singing in many voices - they became GANES. With their roots in their Ladin home, united in their language, blessed with the opportunity to learn how to fly. Their latest album "an cunta che" released in 2016, is inspired by the Ladin world of fairies and magical tales. Deeply involved in the mystic world of the Fanes-saga, Ganes take the ancient vibes into today's world. Old and new are standing face to face, forever connected, but viewed from a new perspective.

    Eine "Vokalsensation" nennt sie die Fachpresse. In ihrer Wahlheimat Frankreich ist die Koreanerin Youn Sun Nah längst zum Jazzstar avanciert, mit ihrer individuell artikulierten Stimmakrobatik schreitet sie den chronologischen und geografischen Gesangs-Horizont ab. Ihre Vokalkunst reicht von der vulkanischen, eruptiven Ausdrucksweise bis hin zur feinsten Ziselierung einzelner Klangfacetten.

    Conversation in English

    Der dänische Philosoph Vincent Hendricks leitet das weltweit einzige Institut zur Erforschung von Fake News, Shit Storms und Filterblasen. Er warnt, wir werden Gefahr laufen, hinter das Zeitalter der Aufklärung zurückzufallen. Falschmeldungen gab es schon früher, bestätigt Hendricks, doch heute werden sie übers Internet und die sozialen Medien in Sekundenschnelle geteilt und erzielen eine ungeheure Reichweite.

    "100% Scooter. Piano Only."

    Variations of Scooter Songs arr. Sven Helbig

    SCOOTER, the most successful formation in the history of the German single charts, and the world-famous pianist Olga Scheps have worked together on a very special project. The ECHO Klassik winner exclusively interpreted 11 scooter songs on her piano for the 25th anniversary of the band. The 11 songs were arranged and produced by the double ECHO classical music winner and composer Sven Helbig. He belongs to the younger generation of composers, for whom the boundaries between the classical orchestral world, experimental art and pop music no longer exist. He is Composer in Residence at the German National Theater in Weimar, at the University of Leipzig and the National University of San Martin in Buenos Aires. He maintains long-term creative partnerships with artists including the Fauré Quartet, opera singer René Pape, conductor Kristjan Järvi and the Pet Shop Boys.

    Andres Lepik Nicht nur Königsschlösser: Architektur in Bayern unter König Ludwig II

    Prof. Andres Lepik, Direktor Architekturmuseum der TU München

    Das populäre Bild des weltentrückten "Märchenkönigs" Ludwig II, das schon zu seinen Lebzeiten einsetzte, steckt noch immer in allen Köpfen. Doch die Vorstellung, der König habe sich für die Probleme seiner Zeit nicht interessiert & seine politischen Pflichten vernachlässigt, ist angesichts neuer Forschungen grundsätzlich zu revidieren. Denn in Wirklichkeit hat er zeitlebens seine Amtsgeschäfte geführt, sich für soziale Reformen eingesetzt, den technischen Fortschritt befördert & sich gerade im Bereich des Bauens aktiv für zahlreiche öffentliche Projekte eingesetzt: vom Waisenhaus über das Kinderspital, vom Kanalisationssystem, den Brückenbau & die Industrieausstellung bis hin zum Bahnhof & zur Synagoge. In der öffentlichen Wahrnehmung haben die Königsschlösser bislang alle anderen Aspekte der Architektur in seiner Zeit komplett überstrahlt. Es ist also höchste Zeit, das Engagement von Ludwig II für die Architektur seiner Zeit anhand der vorhandenen Dokumente & Bauten zurecht zu rücken.

    My Favorites

    Kristallklar, dynamisch, lyrisch und erdverbunden ? ihre Stimme ist die vielleicht brillanteste aller skandinavischen Jazzsängerinnen. Wenn Tolstoy einen Song vorträgt, interpretiert sie ihn nicht einfach, sie formt und prägt ihn auf einzigartige Weise. Bei aller Vielseitigkeit zieht sich Leichtigkeit wie ein roter Faden durch ihr musikalisches Werk. Für Schloss Elmau traf Viktoria Tolstoy eine besondere Auswahl ihres großen Repertoires, darunter unvergleichliche Interpretationen von Jazz-Klassikern des Great American Songbook.
