    David Helbock's Random Control
    Tour d'horizon

    From Brubeck to Zawinul

    David Helbock, piano, electronics, toypiano, percussion
    Johannes Bär, trumpet, piccolotrumpet, flugelhorn, sousaphone, tuba, alphorn, beatbox, didgeridoo, electronics, percussion
    Andreas Broger, soprano sax, tenor sax, clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, recorder, flugelhorn, percussion

    More than two dozen instruments on stage, but only three musicians: David Helbock limits himself largely to those with keys. Johannes Bär is responsible for brass, from trumpet and bass flugelhorn to alphorn and tuba. Andreas Broger plays the woodwind instruments: saxophones, clarinets, flute. For the current CD, which will be released in autumn 2018 on the renowned label ACT Music, David Helbock has taken his favourite jazz pianists and arranged their most famous piece. Over the years, a wholly independent band sound has developed: completely independent of what David Helbock chooses as the source material - whether Austrian folk music as in the past or the current "Pianoplayer's Hits" - the band always sounds unmistakably like Random/Control. Music for the ear, and exciting for the eye.

    Sabine Meyer clarinet
    Alliage Quintet

    Daniel Gauthier, soprano sax | Miguel Valles Mateu, alto sax | Simon Hanrath, tenor sax| Sebastian Pottmeier, baritone sax | Jang Eun Bae, piano

    The "Queen of the Clarinet" is what they call Sabine Meyer - after all, she has been one of the great clarinet players for years and one of the most influential musicians of our time. It is also thanks to Sabine Meyer that the clarinet occupies a leading position on the concert podiums today. A long musical partnership connects the clarinetist with the Alliage Quintet, consisting of four saxophones and a piano. Together, the musicians can enjoy the intimacy of a chamber music formation and, in arrangements of large-scale works such as Borodin's famous "Polovetzer Tänzen" (Polovtsian Dances), also enjoy the symphonic possibilities of an entire orchestra - transferred to their instruments.

    Christel Lee violin
    Tatiana Chernichka piano

    Beethoven, Dvorák, Saint-Saëns

    After studying at the Juilliard School, the violinist Christel Lee studied with the famous Munich professor Ana Chumachenco, who also prepared Lisa Batiashvili and Julia Fischer for their world careers. In 2013, the American violinist of South Korean origin won second prize and the Audience Award at the ARD Competition and two years later won the renowned Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in Helsinki. With her piano partner, the German-Russian pianist Tatiana Chernichka, who has also won numerous competitions, she can be heard for the first time at Schloss Elmau.

    Omer Klein Trio

    Omer Klein, piano | Haggai Cohen-Milo, bass | Amir Bressler, drums

    The Süddeutsche Zeitung called Omer Klein, who was born in Israel in 1982, a "master pianist". His seventh album, which will be heard in Schloss Elmau, is entitled "Sleepwalkers" and was created with his excellent trio, consisting of bassist Haggai Cohen-Milo and drummer Amir Bresler. "With everything we play," says Omer Klein, "you can feel an enormous bond between us. Our long friendship has its very own sound. Amir and Haggai are not only important participants in this album; they ARE this music just as much as I am". Omer Klein now lives in Düsseldorf after studying in the USA. For his last album the trio was nominated for the ECHO Jazz Award.

    Satie

    After Erik Satie's death in 1925, his friends entered his apartment for the first time and were surprised to find two stacked concert grand pianos next to a chaotic mess. Pianist Tamar Halperin and producer Guy Sternberg were inspired by this picture: they dissect Satie's compositions into individual voices, play them on different instruments, stack the set pieces on top of each other again and in doing so investigate the question of how Satie's music would have sounded today. At the same time, their interpretations reflect Satie's influence on the following generations of artists. After all, Satie is far more than the archetype of the minimal pianist. As a composer, he blurred the boundaries between "classical art music" and popular styles and introduced a wide variety of aesthetic concepts such as minimalism, Dadaism and surrealism into music.

    Priya Mitchell violin
    Yefim Bronfman piano

    Brahms, Schumann et al.

    As one of the great pianists of our time, Yefim Bronfman can be experienced worldwide in piano recitals and with large orchestras. In addition to his solo commitments, the American-Israeli pianist with Russian roots also places great value on versatility and ever new musical challenges: these include contemporary music as well as song accompaniment or chamber music in new and changing formations. This is how the sonata evening with the excellent British violinist Priya Mitchell was created as a new formation especially for Schloss Elmau. Priya Mitchell, the "wonderful, highly emotional and intellectually curious violinist" (Süddeutsche Zeitung), runs the prestigious Oxford Music Festival.

    Prokofjew: Sonate für Violoncello und Klavier C-Dur op. 119 Rachmaninow: Trio élégiaque Nr. 1 g-Moll et al

    Optimism, vitality and exuberance belong to the personality of the young French-Belgian cellist Camille Thomas, who last year signed an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon. For her, the most important thing in a concert is "the immediate experience, the here and now. The artist gives and conveys, the audience experiences and reacts. That's the magical thing about it". Together with the violinist Lorenzo Gatto and the pianist Julien Libeer, Camille Thomas forms an exquisite trio, with whom she can now be experienced in Schloss Elmau, followed by an extended tour with Beethoven's Triple Concerto. A reunion in Schloss Elmau with Camille Thomas will take place in November at the Verbier Festival@Elmau.

    Clara-Jumi Kang violin
    Yeol Eum Son piano

    Schumann, Prokofiev, Strauss

    Clara-Jumi Kang, a violinist of Korean origin born in Mannheim, became the youngest student of all time at the Mannheim Musikhochschule at the age of four, moved to the Juilliard School in New York at the age of seven and today performs with many major orchestras. On the programme of her concert evening in Schloss Elmau, together with pianist Yeol Eum Son, is the only violin sonata by Richard Strauss alongside Schumann and Prokofiev. The then 23-year-old composer, who lived in Garmisch in later years, succeeded with this work in creating one of the great violin sonatas of the Fin de Siècle, full of virtuosity and colourfulness.

    Eivind Aarset guitar
    Audun Erlien bass
    Wetle Holte drums
    Erland Dahlen percussion

    The music of the Norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset shimmers between jazz, electronics and postrock with spherical to psychedelic sounds reminiscent of a science fiction film of the seventies. Aarset captivates with his fabulous guitar playing in this quartet, without dominating his renowned colleagues Audun Erlien, Wetle Holte and Erland Dahlen - first class!

    Lisa Batiashvili violin

    Jean-Yves Thibaudet piano

    Schostakowitsch, Ravel, Mendelssohn Bartholdy

    Three great musicians of our time, soloists celebrated all over the world, but also passionate chamber musicians, come together in a trio for this concert and they discover - besides the string quartet - this central genre of chamber music. In addition to Mendelssohn's Second Trio, the programme includes two works of the 20th century: Shostakovich's Late Romantic First Trio and Ravel's refined and poetic only work of this genre.

    Author's reading & discussion

    Johann Scheerer reads
    "Wir sind dann wohl die Angehörigen: Die Geschichte einer Entführung"

    Felicitas von Lovenberg, moderation

    Johann Scheerer tells of the 33 days around Easter 1996, when his father Jan Philipp Reemtsma was in the hands of kidnappers and the home became a police operation centre. How do you endure the uncertainty, fear and agonizing boredom? How do you fill the days when anything can happen at any time, but you can't even go to school or meet friends? And even the doctors, Green Day and your own electric guitar can't help?

    Symposion

    The Truth & Nothing but the Truth -
    Truth in the age of fake, fiction & ideology criticism

    Conception and direction: Prof. Dr. Christoph Schmidt (Hebrew University, Van Leer Institute Jerusalem)
    The lectures and discussions will take place on the 8th and 9th November from 9:00-10:45, 11-13 and 14:30-16:30.

    This dialogue does not only open the abyss between skepticism and belief, truth and fiction, objective truth and subjective truthfulness, truth and text, but also between power and commitment, society and the individual, politics and religion, as well as Jewish, Christian and Greek notions of truth. Often these relations are based on a dramaturgy of truth, which point to the moment of the revelation, discovery or the act of telling the truth. Truth can be tragic, but it might be revealed in irony or comedy, too.

    Participants:
    Elliot Wolfson, St. Barbara | John Milbank, Nottingham | Mosche Halberthal, Jerusalem & New York | Raef Zreik, Tel Aviv | Amit Kravitz, München | David Heyd, Jerusalem | Michael Roubach, Jerusalem | Peter Trawny, Wuppertal | Nicole Hochner, Jerusalem | Christoph Schmidt, Jerusalem | Dan Avnon, Jerusalem | Daphna Saring, Jerusalem | Antonios Kalatzis, Berlin | Ruth Ronen, Tel Aviv |

    Maciej Obara Quartet "Unloved"

    Maciej Obara, alto sax | Dominik Wania, piano | Ole Morten Vågan, bass | Gard Nilssen, drums

    The Polish alto saxophonist Maciej Obara recently released his first remarkable CD "Unloved" on the ECM label. His expressive palette ranges from delicate lyricism to fiery and powerful playing. The title song of the programme comes from Krzysztof Komeda, the guiding spirit of modern jazz in Poland. All other themes are from Maciej Obara himself, but these serve more as a kind of outline from which, he explains, "Our sound is set free from. My friends are fantastic improvisers - it's more like composing in real time."

    Jakob Bro Trio

    Jakob Bro, guitar | Thomas Morgan, bass | Joey Baron, drums

    One year after his award-winning ECM debut "Gefion" the Danish guitarist Jakob Bro is back with a breathtaking new album. As with "Gefion", "Streams" also focuses on melody, sound, space, layered textures and interaction. However, Bro has developed such an intimate musical understanding with bassist Thomas Morgan that the two now manage to develop ad hoc improvisational ideas. In addition, Jakob Bro has found a new drummer in Joey Baron who gives the trio many other impetuses. From Jazz Echo 23.09.2016

    "Nightfall"

    "Mit diesem Projekt habe ich einen lang gehegten Traum von mir verwirklicht", sagt Till Brönner über "Nightfall" mit Stücken von Leonard Cohen bis zu den Beatles. Es ist die erste Zusammenarbeit des Trompeters mit dem Bassisten Dieter Ilg - auch wenn ihre musikalische Formation dem Hörer so selbstverständlich und vertraut anmutet, als ob sie schon immer bestanden hätte. "Nightfall" ist also sowohl Debüt ihrer Zusammenarbeit als auch das Ergebnis einer intensiven Zusammenarbeit zweier großer Geschichtenerzähler.

    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."

    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.

    Für die Worte Vielseitigkeit und Neugier gibt es ein Synonym: Nils Landgren. Virtuos schwingt sich "Mr. Red Horn" - wie er aufgrund seiner roten Posaune genannt wird - von Perspektive zu Perspektive - auch, weil er den ständigen Wechsel braucht. So gehört er als Posaunist, Sänger, Produzent und Entertainer zu den kreativsten und erfolgreichsten Figuren der europäischen Musikszene.

Amihai Grosz konzertierte als Solist mit verschiedenen renommierten Orchestern wie etwa der Staatskapelle Berlin und arbeitete mit Künstlern wie Isaac Stern, Daniel Barenboim, Mitsuko Uchida, Yefim Bronfman und David Geringas zusammen.

    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. "
