    Jazzrausch Bigband
    Still! Still! Still!

    The Munich Jazzrausch Bigband have a very special year behind them. In 2018 they performed over 100 concerts at the Philharmonie Munich, the Rheingau Music Festival in Wiesbaden and the JZ Festival in Shanghai. After their phenomenal techno concert in July this year, the Jazzrausch Bigband is looking forward to presenting their Christmas program "Still! Still! Still! at Schloss Elmau. It embeds the melodies of well-known European Christmas songs in a swinging big band aesthetic á la Count Basie. At the same time, Leonhard Kuhn's arrangements offer a lot of humour, irony and ingenuity. The Jazzrausch Bigband is led by Roman Sladek.

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

    Whether in Brazil, Taiwan or the USA - everywhere where the three musicians of triosence have performed so far, an enthusiastic audience has been left behind. The band has developed an unmistakable style, which they themselves call songjazz. The melody, a mixture of jazz, fusion, folk and world, convinces not only connoisseurs but also those who could do little with jazz so far.

The Van Kuijks have won several first prizes, most recently at the Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition in London in 2015.

Gemeinsam sind die beiden Musiker nun in einem erstklassigen Duo zu erleben. Im Zentrum ihrer Matinee steht Ravels grosse Sonate für Violine und Violoncello.

    Mozart: Sonate für zwei Klavier D-Dur KV 448 & Rachmaninow

    Bitte beachten Sie die Besetzungsänderung!

    Unfortunately, Víkingur Ólafsson had to cancel this engagement because of a South American tour. We are very happy that Denis Kozhukhin has agreed to take over his part.

    The concerto's programme includes works for two pianos: Mozart's extremely demanding sonata, whose "exuberant joy suddenly merges into a wild pathos that exposes that secret foundation", as one pianist judged. Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances op. 45 are his last work, which he composed for orchestra in the USA in 1940 and which he himself composed for two pianos. The works will be performed in Schloss Elmau by Denis Koszhukhin and Julien Quentin, who are regular guests at all major festivals and concert halls as well as in Schloss Elmau.

    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.

    Dina Bolshakova on cello and Katharina Polivaeva on piano bring together their interest in 20th century music. Their concert at Schloss Elmau features popular pieces by Arvo Pärt as well as less frequently performed works by Schnittke and others. The ensemble name they chose, duoUNRUH, contains a play of words: the balance, the precise heart of a clock and unrest, as a state of living, driven restlessness.

    This trio around the Viennese bassist Georg Breinschmid is at home in all styles: from Balkan Jazz and Gipsy Swing to Waltz and Viennese Song, the musical spectrum of the trio ranges, in which again and again a whole wealth of quotations from music history flashes up. A stunningly comical, highly virtuosic and casually grooving concert evening with a simply brilliant trio.

    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. "

    Paolo Fresu, trumpet, fluegelhorn | Richard Galliano, accordion, accordina | Jan Lundgren, piano

    Paris trifft auf Fjorde, mediterrane Gestade und die Basin Street auf New Orleans. Mit "Mare Nostrum III" präsentiert die "Troika des europäischen Jazz" ihr nunmehr drittes Programm - klangmalerisch, bittersüß und schlicht hinreißend. Der sardische Trompeter Paolo Fresu, der französische Akkordeonist Richard Galliano und der schwedische Pianist Jan Lundgren sind Poeten des Klangs, die mit ihrer grenzüberschreitenden Musiksprache den "Sound Europas" erklingen lassen.

    „Die lupenrein strahlende Fatma Said ist eine Entdeckung“, schrieb die FAZ über die ägyptische Sopranistin, die zu den interessantesten jungen Sängerinnen gehört.

    STEGREIF.orchester

    The Improvising Symphony Orchestra
    #freebrahms


    Das STEGREIF.orchester eröffnet dem Publikum ganz neue Herangehensweisen an klassische Musik. Erst hat das Orchester Beethoven "befreit", dann Schubert, jetzt kommt Johannes Brahms' 3. Symphonie an die Reihe. Seine Version ist gewürzt mit Jazz, Weltmusik und Techno. Das Ensemble spielt weder mit Noten, noch mit einem Dirigenten. Die dadurch gewonnene Freiheit schafft Raum für Improvisation und Bewegung, die Musiker bewegen sich durch den Raum, ohne Scheu, irgendwem mit ihrer Musik zu nahe zu kommen. ”Es wäre absurd, diesen Virtuosen musikalisches und interpretatorisches Stilbewusstsein aberkennen zu wollen. Im Gegenteil: Sie definieren es neu", so die ZEIT.
