    Works by Handel, Vivaldi, Westhoff et al.

    Daniel Hope and his ensemble take the listener on a journey through musical baroque, a journey that is also a history of the violin and its origins. Hope plays works by Handel, Vivaldi and Westhoff and numerous musical discoveries by lesser-known composers who also roamed Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries in search of inspiration and new impulses. A brilliant evening full of sparkling music!

    variations and interludes on Strawinsky's „Firebird”

    Burning for something or burning up on something, floating on the wings of freedom or hanging unsupported in the air? Everything has its two sides, as do the associations one makes with “fire” and “bird”. In their joint programme “Firebird” percussionist Alexei Gerassimez and jazz pianist Omer Klein move within this field of tension. Inspiration and source material for their own compositions is one of the most complex works in the history of music: Stravinsky's “Firebird” once again stretches out its iridescent wings and plunges like a phoenix from the ashes into a sonic adventure full of lightness and passion directly into chaos and back again.

    Anna Depenbusch vocals & piano

    "One woman, one piano and nothing else. Pure pleasure."

    Passion and temperament, creativity and poetry, humour and irony: these are the characteristics that characterise Anna Depenbusch - not only on stage but also backstage. With her last studio album “Das Alphabet der ANNA DEPENBUSCH in schwarz-weiß” (The alphabet of ANNA DEPENBUSCH in black and white), the singer-songwriter from Hamburg showed that it takes no more than a piano and her voice to immerse oneself in a world full of fantasy for a few hours. In this world, stories written about life, anecdotes, truths, dreams, desires and longings merge in a symbiosis. Whether she whispers or whistles, caresses or trembles, jokes playfully or simply touches you deeply: “Anna Depenbusch is the measure of all things in her field, modern chanson” (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung).

    "Blessed with an immensely offensive, sometimes devouring tone of such lyrical as dramatic power," music journalist Harald Eggebrecht (SZ) described American violist David Aaron Carpenter; critic icon Norman Lebrecht called him the "hottest violist of our time". Now he and his no less talented siblings are back at Schloss Elmau.

    Alexandra Dovgan piano

    “...I predict her a great future...”
    Grigory Sokolov on Alexandra Dovgan

    “This is one of those rare occasions. The eleven-year-old pianist Alexandra Dovgan can hardly be called a wonder child, for while this is a wonder, it is not child’s play. What one hears is a performance by a grown-up individual and a person. It is a special pleasure for me to commend the art of her remarkable music teacher, Mira Marchenko. Yet there are things that cannot be taught and learned. Alexandra Dovgan’s talent is exceptionally harmonious. Her playing is honest and concentrated. I predict a great future for her…“

    Levickis' virtuosity and versatility in classical and contemporary repertoire changes the way we perceive the instrument. He was the first accordionist to be signed to Universal Music Decca Classic, and his debut album climbed straight to the top of the official classic album charts in the UK. Now it's well on the way to winning over audiences in Germany as well.
