    Rokia Traoré vocals
    & Band

    Her voice is one of the most important in Africa. Literally: Amazingly changeable, the singer from Mali pulls out all the stops from velvety to rough, from guttural chanting to radiant soprano. And in a figurative sense: with a pointed and progressive musical language, political and personal lyrics - in English, French and her mother tongue Bambara - and a boundless desire to experiment, Rokia Traoré is a modern ambassador for her continent far away from all world music conventions.

    Anna Vinnitskaya piano

    Chopin: Sonata No 2 B flat minor et al.

    Whether Chopin, Debussy or Schostakowitsch - Anna Vinnitskaya moves effortlessly through the repertoire. For this year's "double feature" in Schloss Elmau, the sought-after pianist performs both a piano recital and chamber music, she first interprets Debussy's Préludes and on 12 March Schostakowitsch's piano quintet together with the Schumann Quartett.

    Author's reading and discussion

    Neil MacGregor
    Living with the Gods

    Moderation: Prof Monika Grütters, Minister of State for Culture and Media

    Neil MacGregor's new book takes us on a fascinating journey through the world of gods and religions. From the Arctic to India, from Mexico to Japan, from ancient Rome to contemporary Africa, it tells us how religious beliefs shape the lives of communities, the relationship between the individual and the state, and our image of ourselves.

    Mare Nostrum

    Paolo Fresu, trumpet, fluegelhorn | Richard Galliano, accordion, accordina | Jan Lundgren, piano

    Paris meets fjords, Mediterranean shores and Basin Street meets New Orleans. With "Mare Nostrum III", the "Troika of European Jazz" presents its third programme - a sound painting, bittersweet and simply enchanting. The Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, the French accordionist Richard Galliano and the Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren are poets of sound, who let the "sound of Europe" resound with their cross-border musical language.

    STEGREIF.orchester

    The Improvising Symphony Orchestra
    #freebrahms


    The STEGREIF.orchestra opens up completely new approaches to classical music for the audience. First the orchestra "liberated" Beethoven, then Schubert, now it's the turn of Johannes Brahms' 3rd Symphony. His version is spiced with jazz, world music and techno. The ensemble plays neither with music nor with a conductor. This creates freedom: the musicians move through the room without being afraid to get too close to anyone with their music. "It would be absurd to want to deprive these virtuosos of their musical and interpretational sense of style. On the contrary: they redefine it", says ZEIT.

    Weinberg: flute concert No 1, Symphony No 2 et al.

    The Jewish Chamber Orchestra Munich was founded in 2005 as the Jakobsplatz München Orchestra by conductor Daniel Grossmann. Since then, under his artistic direction, it has developed a unique international profile and brought contemporary Jewish culture to life. In Schloss Elmau, the orchestra is dedicated to the composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg, who has appeared regularly in concert programmes in recent years, thanks to numerous advocates such as Gidon Kremer.

    "Zazie in the Metro"
    by Raymond Queneau

    "Zazie in the Metro" is a thrillingly wild, playful and solidly narrated story about Paris, about the languages of everyday life and about the ravishing, adventurous, nine-times smart Zazie, who turns pretty much EVERYTHING upside down.

    "a trio experience"

    When the Cuban pianist and composer Marialy Pacheco, the German singer and songwriter Max Mutzke and his brother, the trumpeter Menzel Mutzke meet, competence and musicality come together for an extraordinary pop concert. The title of the program sums up the concept: "a trio experience". As simple as it sounds, as concrete and comprehensible is what happens on stage: A public entertainment of three people in different constellations.

    works for male voices and horns by Schubert, Schumann et al.

    Forest, hunting, male singing and the sound of the horn are not to be excluded from German Romanticism. The award-winning gentlemen from "German hornsound" and "amarcord" present works for male voices and horn quartet, including Schubert's famous song "Nachtgesang im Walde" from the heart chamber of German Romanticism, always with a pinch of irony.
