    Ludovico Einaudi piano

    Works from Ludovico Einaudi's album
    “Seven Days Walking”

    His unique piano playing fills entire stadiums, yet Ludovico Einaudi still loves the chamber music form: the great melodic Ludovico Einaudi returns to Schloss Elmau for an intimate trio with two of his ancestral Sidemen.

    Book Fair Days

    Presentation of the autumn releases with critics Ijoma Mangold, Denis Scheck & Insa Wilke.

    Directly following the Frankfurt Book Fair, three distinguished literary critics travel to Schloss Elmau to present the most important literary releases of the autumn and to discuss their significance and quality. This time they appear as a trio with two intensive days of discussions.

    “Miroloi”

    Ein Dorf, eine Insel, eine ganze Welt: Karen Köhlers erster Roman erzählt von einer jungen Frau, die als Findelkind in einer abgeschirmten Gesellschaft aufwächst – und sich auflehnt: Gegen die Strukturen ihrer Welt und für die Freiheit.

    Katerina Poladjan
    about her novel
    “Hier sind Löwen”

    1915: Die alte Bibel einer armenischen Familie an der Schwarzmeerküste ist das Einzige, was den Geschwistern Anahid und Hrant auf ihrer Flucht bleibt. Hundert Jahre später in Jerewan wird der Restauratorin Helen eine Bibel anvertraut. Sie taucht ein in die Rätsel des alten Buches, in dem jemand an den Rand einer Seite gekritzelt hat: „Hrant will nicht aufwachen“.

    Kirill Troussov violin
    Alexandra Troussova piano

    Brahms: violin sonata No 3, Tschaikowsky et al.

    They have been playing together since they can walk and longer than they can remember: Kirill Troussov and his sister Alexandra Troussova. They are now one of the very few world-class sibling duos. Their devotion to the search for perfection and their high level of emotion not only connects the two of them, but also intensively transmits itself to their audience.

    Jazz

    Émile Parisien Quartet

    Émile Parisien, soprano & tenor saxophone
    Julien Touéry, piano
    Ivan Gélugne, bass
    Julien Loutelier, drums

    Vital, curious and progressive, the French scene has set important milestones for the development of contemporary European jazz and yet has never lost its grounding. Progress on the feet of his own tradition also characterizes the saxophonist Emile Parisien: a jazz visionary who stands with one leg in the past and looks far ahead. This makes him the “best news for European jazz for a long time” (Le Monde), to which “undivided attention” (NDR) should be paid.

    Daniel Hope violin
    Sebastian Koch recitation
    “Paradies”

    musical reading with texts by Dostojewski, Brecht, Nietzsche & Eco and works by Bach, Ravel & Schumann

    Daniel Hope, one of the most sought-after violinists of our time, and Sebastian Koch, German cinema star, who has also played alongside Tom Hanks, meet and embark on a quest for paradise. Daniel Hope plays works for violin solo by Bach, Ravel and Schumann, while Sebastian Koch reads texts by Dostojewski, Brecht, Jelinek, Nietzsche and Eco.

    Ana de la Vega flute
    Daniel Röhn violin, viola
    Paul Rivinius piano

    Debussy: Prélude à l’àpres-midi d’un faune,
    Bach: “Musikalischen Opfer” (excerpts),
    Mozart et al.

    Ana de la Vega almost hung up her flute: she was actually on the way to pursue a completely new career path as an artist manager. But her freshly recorded recording of Mozart's flute concertos became such an international success that she finally returned to music – and today is regarded as one of the most extraordinary flutists. Together with Daniel Röhn, “one of the most remarkable violinists of our time” (Harald Eggebrecht, SZ) and the renowned pianist Paul Rivinius, she can now be heard for the first time at Schloss Elmau.

Seine Geburtstagsfeier mit langjährigen musikalischen Freunden ist prominent besetzt und verspricht einen großartigen Start des diesjährigen Jazz-Festivals.

    Für die Website Something Else! ist der Deutsche Florian Weber "ein wahrhaft wegweisender Pianist", die New York Times streicht dessen "Ästhetik des aerodynamischen Fließens" heraus, All About Jazz bescheinigt dem nach Neuerungen hungernden Deutschen einen "allesverzehrenden Musikappetit", und die Süddeutsche Zeitung erblickt in ihm einen Ausnahmepianisten "mit frischem, unverbrauchtem Ton", der "Interessantes und Mitreißendes zu erzählen" hat. Das Lob der Kritiker ist Ausdruck einer Erfolgskarriere, in deren Verlauf sich Weber als feste Größe in der globalen Szene etablierte.

    “Relaxin' in Ireland”

    Schon als Teenager galt Julian Wasserfuhr als größtes deutsches Ausnahmetalent an der Trompete seit Till Brönner. Zusammen mit seinem Bruder Roman am Klavier bildet er ein unzertrennliches Paar. Ihre (Seelen-)Verwandtschaft und Vertrautheit kommt dem gemeinsamen Spiel zugute. Ob mit Trompete oder Flügelhorn, Julian schafft mit seinem warmen Ton atmosphärische Klangräume. Sein Bruder Roman ist mit seinem akzentuiert-strahlenden Klavierspiel an dem frischen, aber dennoch ausgereiften und luftigen Sound der Band nicht minder beteiligt. Die ZEIT fand die Musik der Brüder „verblüffend ungewöhnlich“, die Süddeutsche Zeitung bescheinigte Julian Wasserfuhr einen „magischen Ton“.

    about

    Hannah Arendt
    “Wir Juden –
    Schriften 1932 bis 1966”

    „Jude sein gehört für mich zu den unbezweifelbaren Gegebenheiten meines Lebens.“ – Hannah Arendt beginnt mit ihrer Arbeit zu Rahel Varnhagen, sich mit der Geschichte der Juden in Europa zu beschäftigen. Nachdem sie 1933 aus Deutschland fliehen muss, setzt sie sich verstärkt mit ihrer Zugehörigkeit zum Judentum auseinander. Dieser Band versammelt zu Lebzeiten veröffentlichte Aufsätze Arendts zur politischen Bedeutung jüdischer Identität. Außerdem dokumentiert er ihre Essays zur Entwicklung von Zionismus, Palästina und Israel. Herausgegeben, zum Teil erstmals übersetzt und eingeordnet von Marie Luise Knott und Ursula Ludz, schließen diese Schriften (Piper) eine wichtige Lücke in der Arendt-Literatur. Marie Luise Knott stellt „Wir Juden“ im Gespräch mit Rachel Salamander vor.

    Ondrej Janoska, Violine | Roman Janoska, Violine | František Janoska, Klavier | Julius Darvas, Kontrabass

    The musical universe is infinite and the galaxy of best-loved composers alone contains thousands of musical suns. Stylistically, though, these are often musical light-years apart. The Janoska Ensemble has set out to span intergalactic distance with its unique synthesis of musical worlds and its venture has won it an enthusiastic international public in a remarkably short time. The four young progenitors of this art - each with a superb classical training - have combined their individual musical attainments to perfection: Ondrej, František and Roman Janoska (three brothers from Bratislava) and their brother-in-law Julius Darvas (born and bred in Konstanz) are already successful with their "Janoska Style" in repeated engagements on four continents. The Janoska Style possesses the rare ability to enthuse dedicated followers of totally opposing genres. Its vast reserves of positive energy electrify an audience after just a few bars.
