    Highest virtuosity and poetic depth: Anna Vinnitskaya can not only ignite spectacular fireworks, but also paint great paintings.

    Hugo Ticciati, violin
    Julian Arp, cello
    Reto Bieri, clarinet

    Beethoven, Saint-Säens, Pärt & Gershwin

    Two evenings are dedicated to the Swedish multi-talent Hugo Ticciati. He has named his innovative concept “O/Modernt”, Swedish for “Un/Modern”, and refers to a group of world-class fellow musicians who redefine classical parameters. The philosophy of O/Modernt is future-oriented and passionate, the program compositions innovative and stirring – true to the great composer John Cage: “Invent the past”!

    Wort-Musik

    Ulrich Tukur & Christian Redl Rezitation
    Olena Kushpler Klavier
    „Vom Zauber einer verwehenden Sprache –
    Deutsche Gedichte und Balladen“

    Gedichte, Balladen und Texte von Goethe und Schiller über Heine und Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger
    Musik von Schumann, Liszt et al.

    in German

    Ulrich Tukur und Christian Redl wollen an die Anfänge, an den Ursprung von Theater erinnern: Den Text, die Sprache mit der man eine gute Geschichte erzählt. Neben ihren Lieblingsgedichten haben sich beide dazu noch eine fast in Vergessenheit geratene Form ausgesucht: Die Ballade. Wie der Kriminalroman lebt sie von Spannungsmomenten und Knalleffekten. Und wie in diesem verwandten Genre geht es immer um Mord, Ehebruch, Verführung, Kindsmord und unerwiderter Liebe. Nur mit ihrer Stimme und ihrer Mimik zaubern Tukur und Redl mit Texten von Goethe über Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger phantastische Welten auf die Bühne, die, weil es immer um Schicksale von Menschen geht, tief berühren. Die Pianistin Olena Kushpler reagiert am Klavier auf die Texte mit Musikstücken u.a. von Liszt, Satie, Schönberg und Schumann, die oft zeitgleich zu den Gedichten entstanden.

    Cristina Branco vocals
    & Band

    One of the great voices of Portuguese Fado

    Luís Figueiredo, piano, eletronics
    Bernardo Couto, portuguese guitar
    Bernardo Moreira, bass

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    Cristina Branco is one of the most important Portuguese voices: countless concerts all over the world and in major concert halls from the Elbphilharmonie to the Vienna Musikverein speak for themselves. Fado is the traditional song of her homeland - and it is, also traditionally, rather melancholy. In her neo-fado, she breaks with this tradition and also sings a lot about the beauties of life. “Fado is like tango”, she says, “the music of those who have a great soul”.

    “A meltdown of big band sound with house and techno music.”
    (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

    Bigband jazz made in Bavaria. The Jazzrausch Bigband has made it its mission to inspire its audience with creative music-making. With an average of 120 concerts a year, it is one of the busiest big bands in Europe and brings together jazz fans and dance fans with “power of sound, groove and enormous stage presence” (FAZ) like probably no comparable ensemble currently. Groove with brains, electro with horns, jazz in a frenzy.
