    Sona Jobarteh vocals, kora
    & Band

    The Kora is a West African harp instrument with 21 strings, traditionally played by men. Sona Jobarteh has broken this old rule! She plays the kora standing up and demonstrates her complex musical skills on stage as the front woman of her own band. In her compositions she uniquely combines the influences of modern music with traditional African music and thus remains connected to the roots of her homeland.

    „Ich schreibe Filme.
    Ingmar Bergmans Arbeitstagebücher 1955-2001“

    Renate Bleibtreu, Übersetzerin & Herausgeberin
    Jens Harzer, Lesung & Gespräch

    Im Anschluss an die Lesung wird Ingmar Bergmans Film „Wilde Erdbeeren“ gezeigt.

    Sein langes kreatives Leben über führte Ingmar Bergman Arbeitstagebücher: kleine Spiralhefte, in denen er erste Entwürfe seiner Geschichten niederschrieb und auch während der Arbeit an einem Film oder Buch weiter Notizen machte. Diese Auswahl aus den Heften bietet nun einen einzigartigen Einblick in seinen kreativen Arbeitsprozess, zeigt aber auch den Menschen und Künstler Bergman noch einmal ganz neu. Es ist nicht zuletzt ein Bericht darüber, wie ein großer Künstler seine unvergesslichen Geschichten und Bilder zum Leben erweckt.

    „Persona“
    von Ingmar Bergman

    Juliane Köhler und Evgenia Dodina in einer Inszenierung von Amélie Niermeyer

    Gastauftritt. Mit freundlicher Genehmigung des Residenztheaters.

    Die Schauspielerin Elisabet Vogler ist während einer „Elektra“-Vorstellung plötzlich verstummt. Sie hat seit drei Monaten nicht gesprochen und wird der Pflege einer Krankenschwester anvertraut.
    Zwischen den beiden Frauen, der schweigenden und der sprechenden, entwickelt sich eine intensive Beziehung bis an die Grenzen der absoluten Identifikation, der Identitätsauflösung. Da Elisabet als körperlich und geistig gesund gilt, muss ihr Verstummen als ein willentlicher Akt, als Widerstandshandlung verstanden werden. Das Problem von Sprache als Mittel der Verständigung steht im Zentrum des Films „Persona“ von Ingmar Bergman aus dem Jahr 1966.

    Shostakovitch: String quartet No 8
    Original compositions for string quartet and guitar

    The Vision String Quartet, founded in 2012, is currently turning the classical concert world upside down with their unique ability to “walk” between the classical string quartet repertoire and their own compositions from genres such as folk or pop. Now the four young musicians from Berlin have teamed up with the Iranian-Australian guitarist and composer Mahan Mirarab, who for many years has been working just as intensively with indigenous music from Arab countries as with compositions from classical music, jazz and pop. The artists will present some of the new compositions that have emerged from this exciting collaboration following Shostakovich's 8th String Quartet.

    Grigory Sokolov piano

    Concert with interval. Concert-experienced children aged 10 and above, who can sit still during the concert, are welcome to attend.

    The unique character of music played live is a crucial aspect of understanding the expressive beauty and compelling honesty of Grigory Sokolov's art. His poetic interpretations, which come alive with mystical intensity in the concert hall, are based on an in-depth knowledge of the repertoire. His programmes span the entire history of music: from transcriptions of sacred polyphony of the Middle Ages and works by Couperin, Rameau and Bach, to the Classical and Romantic repertoire and key compositions of the 20th century. Now Grigory Sokolov returns to Schloss Elmau – with what is sure to be a compelling and impressive concert evening.
