    Bodek Jankes's currently most ambitious project “SONG” is a modern and acoustic, 21st-century response to the world of singer-songwriters, pop culture and its songs. A heavy clash of contrasting music cultures paves the creative space towards new rhythmic, melodic and harmonic structures, surprising the listener with fresh and new but catchy sounds from an exceptional drummer, composer and arranger.

    “Italianità” – the Italian style in baroque Europe

    Starting with the birth of the Baroque and the “dissection” of rhetoric and affect at the beginning of the 17th century in Italy around Monteverdi, the journey continues through European works of the High and Late Baroque by Handel, Corelli and Jacques Hotteterre le Romain to a look into the 20th century with Luciano Berio's gesture, where the theatricality of Italian style culminates with the stylistic means of the avant-garde of the 1960s.

    What a life! Born in 1923 in Brittany, she grew up in simple circumstances, became a member of the communist resistance as a teenager, saved two Jewish youths – for which Yad Vashem later awarded her the honorary title “Just among the Nations” –, became a neurophysiologist in Marseilles after the war, was sentenced to ten years in prison in 1959 for her involvement in the Algerian independence movement... and is still a living example of the importance of disobedience in schools today. Anne Weber tells the unlikely life of Anne Beaumanoir in a brilliant biographical heroine epic. The scenes described with great eloquence raise many questions: What drives someone into resistance? What does he sacrifice for it? How far may he go? What can he achieve? Annette, a heroine epic tells the story of a true heroine who concerns us.

    A very special concert will bring a very special mother and son team to Schloss Elmau: Violinist Viktoria Mullova is one of the outstanding violinists of our time. Every time she performs at Schloss Elmau, she unfolds a new facet of her great skill and musical range from Bach to Indian music. Her son, the young award-winning double bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado, has also devoted himself to music with great success - but he is especially devoted to jazz. A special evening in an unusual duo formation!

    “It's NOT a tango programme”, emphasises drummer and composer Wolfgang Haffner when he talks about his new programme. “I am interested in a translation of the tango lifestyle into my musical world. While I absorb, process and continue to write influences, I follow my own path, which allows me to be myself. Transposition is decisive: from the reference something new, contemporary emerges”. Also the youngest offspring of the “Kind of...” Trilogy is one thing above all: 100% Haffner.

    „Tokyo Stories“

    The event is only open to hotel guests after prior registration at the Cultural Office on +49 8823 18 260 / kultur@schloss-elmau.de or by SMS to the Hospitality Desk +4917 33 11 22 77

    “Tokyo Stories” is a sonorous homage to the energetic Japanese metropolis of pianist, producer and composer Francesco Tristano, who effortlessly wanders between the world of classical music and the universe of new sound formats. Each of the 16 pieces for piano, synthesizer and electronics reflects his deep admiration for Tokyo and his long relationship with this city. While the album title alludes to the iconic film “Tokyo Story” by Yasujiro Ozus, the music is fed by Tristano's own thoughts and tells his personal story of both upsetting and happy moments in Tokyo.

    Japanese Literature Days

    "Bell sound fades away, flower scents rise, and the evening falls."
    Haiku of Basho
    Japanese literature is an enigmatic and moving fascination.
    It is about the finiteness of being in the face of beauty and love. The cherry blossoms, venerated and loved, are a symbol of the inevitable: That something is, but does not stay, fades away. What remains is mourning and silence about the passing. Like the haiku poet Basho, we set out on a journey, here the way to explore Japanese literature.

    Evelyn Schulz, Professor of Japanese Studies, will give us an overview of the history and present of Japanese literature. Together with the renowned translator Ursula Gräfe, she will shed light on the significance of Japanese works and the challenges of translating them into German. The literary critic Hubert Winkels will introduce us to Lafcadio Hearn's poetic essays on the land of the rising sun. Axel Milberg will read from “The Pillow Book” by Sei Shonagon. We will hear texts by the already classical authors Yasushi Inoue, Yasunari Kawabata, Tanizaki Jun'ichiro, embedded by haikus and Japanese music. One event each from Sunday evening to Wednesday evening. Departure day is Thursday.

    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.

    “It's like driving two BMWs at the same time,” enthused the conductor Michael Schønwandt after a concert with Lucas and Arthur Jussen. Since their earliest childhood, the two Dutch brothers have sat together at the piano, performed before their Queen Beatrix, won prizes at competitions and received lessons from Maria João Pires and Menahem Pressler. The two acclaimed Wunderkinder have long since developed into an internationally sought-after piano duo that has conquered concert halls all over the world and brought a breath of fresh air to the classical music scene.
