    Roman Wasserfuhr piano
    “Relaxin' in Ireland”

    Even as a teenager, Julian Wasserfuhr was regarded as the greatest German trumpet talent since Till Brönner. Together with his brother Roman at the piano they form an inseparable duo. Their (soul) kinship and intimacy are beneficial for playing together. Whether with trumpet or flugelhorn, Julian creates atmospheric sound spaces with his warm tone. His brother Roman, with his accentuated, radiant piano playing, is no less involved in the fresh, yet mature and airy sound of the band. Die ZEIT found the music of the brothers “amazingly unusual”, the Süddeutsche Zeitung praised Julian Wasserfuhr's “magical tone”.

    Rarely does another version open up so many new levels and approaches as Dmitri Sitkovetsky's arrangement of Bach's “Goldberg Variations” for string trio. The three voices open up even more possibilities for differentiation and give a different view of this varied, great composition.

    “Weihnachten in meiner Kindheit”
    by Dylan Thomas

    Framed by Christmas poems

    The great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas remembers the glorious Christmas of his childhood: back when the world was still magical, the family was sitting comfortably together, and he threw snowballs through snow-blown roads with his friends Dan and Jack. He talks about jelly and crackers and mistletoe – and about the fact that Christmas always has its own special magic during childhood.

    Raoul Schrott
    “Eine Geschichte des Windes oder von dem deutschen Kanonier der erstmals die Welt umrundete und dann ein zweites und ein drittes Mal”

    Storms, shipwrecks, cannibals: the adventurous story of a circumnavigator that no one can tell like Raoul Schrott.

    What an adventure! Hannes from Aachen was the first to travel all around the world. 500 years ago he set off for the Spice Islands with Magellan's fleet. And thus into the completely unknown. Mutinies. Shipwrecks. Fights, cannibalism. In the end only one ship returned. Only 18 sailors survived, among them "Juan Aleman". That he set off for a second and even a third circumnavigation of the world is all we know of him. Raoul Schrott has travelled after this minor character of world history: He gives him a whole life full of voluptuous and almost tangible details.

Three brothers Ondrej, František and Roman Janoska together with their Konstanz-born brother-in-law Julius Darvas: their musical creations combine their original classical subject in harmonic accord or colourful contrast with other genres - from jazz and Latin to pop music. But the result is not a mix of styles, but a creative synthesis: the "Janoska Style".

    A workshop with film and Bandamusik

    Important moments for music in people's lives are births and weddings and triumphs, but above all death. Mourning needs music. The lament, a form of music founded by Claudio Monteverdi, belongs to the oldest genres of music. Following on from the literary-musical evening with Hans Magnus Enzensberger at Schloss Elmau a year ago, Alexander Kluge and his film team with the Musicbanda have decided to open a workshop at this creative location and to try out and create something new with the means of film and music on the themes of lamento, band music and minute operas. On the last evening, the artists will present the best of their work in the concert hall at Schloss Elmau.

    Schubert Sonata C minor D 958 et al.

    Schubert's C Minor Sonata is the first of the three last great piano sonatas from the year of Schumann's death in 1828. For Schumann they were located "where the imagination is filled by the sad 'very last' of the idea of near divorce". The speciality of William Youn from Munich - who is gradually recording all of Schubert's piano sonatas for SONY at Schloss Elmau - is to bring such a programme full of deep emotion to the audience.
