    “It's like driving two BMWs at the same time,” enthused the conductor Michael Schønwandt after a concert with Lucas and Arthur Jussen. Since their earliest childhood, the two Dutch brothers have sat together at the piano, performed before their Queen Beatrix, won prizes at competitions and received lessons from Maria João Pires and Menahem Pressler. The two acclaimed Wunderkinder have long since developed into an internationally sought-after piano duo that has conquered concert halls all over the world and brought a breath of fresh air to the classical music scene.

    Emanuele Forni lute/baroque guitar

    Works by Handel, Vivaldi, Westhoff et al.

    Daniel Hope and his ensemble take the listener on a journey through musical baroque, a journey that is also a history of the violin and its origins. Hope plays works by Handel, Vivaldi and Westhoff and numerous musical discoveries by lesser-known composers who also roamed Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries in search of inspiration and new impulses. A brilliant evening full of sparkling music!

    Anna Depenbusch vocals & piano

    "One woman, one piano and nothing else. Pure pleasure."

    Passion and temperament, creativity and poetry, humour and irony: these are the characteristics that characterise Anna Depenbusch - not only on stage but also backstage. With her last studio album “Das Alphabet der ANNA DEPENBUSCH in schwarz-weiß” (The alphabet of ANNA DEPENBUSCH in black and white), the singer-songwriter from Hamburg showed that it takes no more than a piano and her voice to immerse oneself in a world full of fantasy for a few hours. In this world, stories written about life, anecdotes, truths, dreams, desires and longings merge in a symbiosis. Whether she whispers or whistles, caresses or trembles, jokes playfully or simply touches you deeply: “Anna Depenbusch is the measure of all things in her field, modern chanson” (Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung).

    Martynas Levickis accordion

    Bach, Chopin & other works for accordion solo

    Levickis' virtuosity and versatility in classical and contemporary repertoire changes the way we perceive the instrument. He was the first accordionist to be signed to Universal Music Decca Classic, and his debut album climbed straight to the top of the official classic album charts in the UK. Now it's well on the way to winning over audiences in Germany as well.
