    Martin Tingvall piano

    Nach einer Rekordposition in den Deutschen Popcharts geht Martin Tingvall nun wieder auf Solo-Tournee. Egal, wie oft man ihn schon live erlebt hat – man hört niemals etwas zweimal. Tingvalls Solokonzerte spiegeln nie „nur“ die Stücke wieder, die es auf seine beiden Alben geschafft haben. Er spielt mit dem Klavier, lässt sich treiben, arrangiert spontan neu, verliert sich in der Musik.

    Herbert Kapfer
    "1919. Fiktion"

    1919. Deutschland unmittelbar nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg. Aufstände. Räterepubliken. Freikorpskämpfe. Versailler Vertrag. Dolchstoß, politischer Mord, Revanche und Nazismus: Hätte Geschichte anders verlaufen können? In „1919“ fließen hunderte von Splittern, Szenen und Handlungsverläufen aus zeitgenössischen Romanen, Berichten und Aufsätzen zusammen. Ein kühnes, überraschendes, ungeheuerliches Werk wider Geschichtsvergessenheit, Fatalismus und blinden Gehorsam. Ein wegweisendes Buch über ein Weltende, das eine Zukunft war.

    Yonathan Avishai piano

    Jazz pianist Yonathan Avishai, born and raised in Israel, has lived in France for a long time. He became famous in several ensembles of the New York-based trumpeter Avishai Cohen. Recently he released his first CD with the title “Joys and Solitudes” on the ECM label, which is currently receiving high praise from the press. The “freedom to move within and between genres” is the great art of this musician, according to Thomas Steinfeld recently in the SZ, and his “awareness that at least half of the music has to consist of pauses”.

    Nino Haratischwili spürt in ihrem neuen Roman den Abgründen nach, die sich zwischen den Trümmern des zerfallenden Sowjetreichs aufgetan haben.

    Dassoum Fané | Naba Aminata Traoré | Marie-Virginie Dembélé, backing vocals
    Mamadyba Camara | Mamah Diabaté, instrument players (N’goni & Kora)

    Her voice is one of the most important in Africa. Literally: Amazingly changeable, the singer from Mali pulls out all the stops from velvety to rough, from guttural chanting to radiant soprano. And in a figurative sense: with a pointed and progressive musical language, political and personal lyrics - in English, French and her mother tongue Bambara - and a boundless desire to experiment, Rokia Traoré is a modern ambassador for her continent far away from all world music conventions.

With "Mare Nostrum III", the "Troika of European Jazz" presents its third programme - a sound painting, bittersweet and simply enchanting. The Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, the French accordionist Richard Galliano and the Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren are poets of sound, who let the "sound of Europe" resound with their cross-border musical language.

    Heute hier morgen auch - über den Reisewahn

    "Das ganze Unglück der Menschen rührt allein daher, dass sie nicht allein in einem Zimmer zu bleiben vermögen." Das wusste Blaise Pascal schon vor 350 Jahren: Reisen gilt als horizonterweiternd. Dabei finden wir am Ende der Welt auch nicht mehr als uns selbst - und die anderen. Cordula Stratmann und Annette Frier feiern mit Texten von Reisegegnern und Reisezweiflern von Thomas Mann, Kurt Tucholsky, Susan Sontag bis David Foster Wallace eine im Zeitalter des Mobilitätszwangs anrüchig gewordenen Tätigkeit: das Zuhausebleiben - kommen Sie bitte trotzdem!

    BMW Welt Jazz Award Winner 2018

    Ihr Sound ist facettenreich, dabei stets angetrieben von einer pulsierenden Kickdrum. Ihre Musik ist eine Reise nach innen, lädt zum Träumen genauso ein wie zum ekstatischen Tanzen. Im Modern Jazz groß geworden, nimmt das Leo Betzl Trio seine große Liebe zur Improvisation ernst. Da wird mal zart am Klavier phrasiert oder die Saiten mithilfe eines Plektrums bearbeitet, der Bass sanft gestrichen oder schier in Stücke gehauen und das Schlagzeug von feinem Geraschel bis zu mächtigem Groove voll ausgeschöpft.

    STEGREIF.orchester

    The Improvising Symphony Orchestra
    #freebrahms


    The STEGREIF.orchestra opens up completely new approaches to classical music for the audience. First the orchestra "liberated" Beethoven, then Schubert, now it's the turn of Johannes Brahms' 3rd Symphony. His version is spiced with jazz, world music and techno. The ensemble plays neither with music nor with a conductor. This creates freedom: the musicians move through the room without being afraid to get too close to anyone with their music. "It would be absurd to want to deprive these virtuosos of their musical and interpretational sense of style. On the contrary: they redefine it", says ZEIT.

    Arabella Steinbacher violin
    Robert Kulek piano

    Strauss: violin sonata E flat major, Bach & Pärt

    Zu einer spannungsvollen Zusammenstellung ihres Programms haben sich die junge Geigerin Arabella Steinbacher und ihr Klavierpartner Robert Kulek inspirieren lassen. Die beiden Bach-Sonaten BWV 1019 und BWV 1020 (heute meist seinem Sohn Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach zugeschrieben) verströmen spätbarocke Eleganz und empfindsame Melodik. Sie kontrastieren wirkungsvoll mit der einzigen Violinsonate Es-Dur (1887/88) des 23jährigen Richard Strauss – eine stürmische Talentprobe, die auf spätere Sinfonische Dichtungen und sogar den Rosenkavalier vorausweist. Arvo Pärt ist der bekannteste estländische Komponist. Seine Werke entstehen für renommierte Orchester und Musiker. Fratres ist das Ergebnis Pärts Beschäftigung mit der Musik des Mittelalters: Archaischem Klang beginnend findet die Komposition schließlich zu friedvoller und spiritueller Ruhe.

    in cooperation with Louis Vuitton Foundation

    Drei Tage lang wird Cello-Großmeister Gautier Capuçon öffentliche Meisterkurse und Konzerte in Schloss Elmau abhalten, die für alle Gäste zugänglich sind. Mit Unterstützung der französischen Fondation Louis Vuitton wird heranwachsenden Profi-Cellisten das Musizieren mit ihren arrivierten Vorbildern nahegebracht, zur Einstimmung ein Konzert unter Mitwirkung von Capuçon, der seinen zahlreichen Schülern wie seinem internationalen Publikum als das Maß der Dinge gilt.
