    Literature Days

    Japanese Literature Days

    "Bell sound fades away, flower scents rise, and the evening falls."
    Haiku of Basho
    Japanese literature is an enigmatic and moving fascination.
    It is about the finiteness of being in the face of beauty and love. The cherry blossoms, venerated and loved, are a symbol of the inevitable: That something is, but does not stay, fades away. What remains is mourning and silence about the passing. Like the haiku poet Basho, we set out on a journey, here the way to explore Japanese literature.

    Evelyn Schulz, Professor of Japanese Studies, will give us an overview of the history and present of Japanese literature. Together with the renowned translator Ursula Gräfe, she will shed light on the significance of Japanese works and the challenges of translating them into German. The literary critic Hubert Winkels will introduce us to Lafcadio Hearn's poetic essays on the land of the rising sun. Axel Milberg will read from “The Pillow Book” by Sei Shonagon. We will hear texts by the already classical authors Yasushi Inoue, Yasunari Kawabata, Tanizaki Jun'ichiro, embedded by haikus and Japanese music. One event each from Sunday evening to Wednesday evening. Departure day is Thursday.

    Sibylle Canonica liest aus
    Sei Shônagon
    „Kopfkissenbuch“

    Sibylle Canonica, Lesung
    Naoko Kikuchi, Koto-Musik

    Eine poetische Zeitreise an den japanischen Kaiserhof des Jahres 1000.

    Ein Bündel edlen Papiers diente Sei Shônagon vor tausend Jahren als Tagebuch. Diesem vertraute sie ihre intimsten Geheimnisse an, darunter allerlei Delikates aus den Privatgemächern des Kaiserpalasts. Freimütig schwärmt die selbstbewusste junge Frau von Stil und Schönheit, macht sich über die Marotten der Männer lustig und ergründet mit heiterem Eigensinn Himmel und Erde. Ob sie vom prachtvollen Schwertlilienfest erzählt, vom Ausrücken der Kaiserlichen Gewittergarde oder von klammheimlichen Tête-à-Têtes - dank des lebendigen Stils wirken ihre höfischen Impressionen wie mit dem Tuschepinsel hingetupfte Ewigkeitsbilder.

    Basho
    „Auf schmalen Pfaden durchs Hinterland“

    Axel Milberg, Lesung
    Renkei Hashimoto, Shakuhachi-Musik
    Evelyn Schulz, Einführung

    Matsuo Bashôs (1644 - 1694) Reisetagebuch "Oku no hosomichi" gehört zu den Meisterwerken der Weltliteratur. Auf den ersten Blick scheint es eine bloße Beschreibung einer sich über fünf Monate des Jahres 1689 hinziehenden Wanderung in die nördlichen Provinzen Japans zu sein. Doch bei näherem Hinsehen erweist es sich als ein Dokument idealer Selbstvervollkommnung. Die 150 Tage dauernde und sich über 2400 Kilometer erstreckende Wanderung wird als eine hohe Aufgabe erkannt, die als Ineins von Dichten und Wandern die größten Anforderungen an den Reisenden stellt. Asketisch und in wacher Aufmerksamkeit für alle Details schildert Bashô im dauernden Wechsel von nüchternen Berichten und tiefen lyrischen Momenten die Traumhaftigkeit und Vergänglichkeit des menschlichen Daseins.

    Thomas Lettow liest aus
    Yukio Mishima
    „Der Goldene Pavillon“

    Thomas Lettow, Lesung
    Ursula Gräfe, Einführung

    Thomas Lettow (Residenztheater) liest Passagen aus Mishimas großem Roman, und Übersetzerin Ursula Gräfe berichtet von ihrem Abenteuer, eine neue Sprache für einen Klassiker zu finden, der in Japan als Inbegriff literarischer Meisterschaft gilt. Yukio Mishimas Werk erstreckt sich über eine Vielfalt literarischer Stile und Gattungen. Mit dem Roman „Der Goldene Pavillon“, dessen Handlung auf einer wahren Begebenheit beruht, erreicht sein Schaffen einen Höhepunkt. Im Jahre 1950 hatte ein offensichtlich geistesgestörter Novize den berühmten Goldenen Pavillon, den Kinkakuji, in der alten japanischen Kaiserstadt Kyoto in Brand gesteckt. Mishima zeichnet die Entwicklung des jungen Mannes bis zur Durchführung der Tat nach.

    The Pablo Held Trio is currently one of the liveliest and most significant formations of European jazz. It transcends the boundaries between composition and improvisation by renouncing arrangements, a sequence of themes and a predetermined way of presenting them at concerts. "Investigations" is the title of the new album by Pablo Held and his longtime trio with Robert Landfermann on bass and Jonas Burgwinkel on drums, which will be released in April 2018. With this release, the trio finds a new musical home and begins a new chapter in its remarkable track record. Full of seductive elegance and lyrical sophistication, "Investigations" combines tradition with modernity, the familiar with the unknown and subtlety with passionate energy. After twelve years touring, nine acclaimed records and notable collaborations with jazz greats such as John Scofield and Chris Potter, "Investigations" is the next step.

    Christian Tetzlaff has been one of the most sought-after violinists in the music world for many years. His solo evening at Schloss Elmau features two of Johann Sebastian Bach's famous partitas and sonatas as well as a solo sonata by Eugène Ysaÿe from 1923. In admiration for Bach's works, Ysaÿe wrote his own programmatic cycle, whose first sonata he composed in the style of a Bach sonata with Prelude and Fugue and dedicated to the Hungarian violinist Joseph Szigeti.

    “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.

    variations and interludes on Strawinsky's „Firebird”

    Burning for something or burning up on something, floating on the wings of freedom or hanging unsupported in the air? Everything has its two sides, as do the associations one makes with “fire” and “bird”. In their joint programme “Firebird” percussionist Alexei Gerassimez and jazz pianist Omer Klein move within this field of tension. Inspiration and source material for their own compositions is one of the most complex works in the history of music: Stravinsky's “Firebird” once again stretches out its iridescent wings and plunges like a phoenix from the ashes into a sonic adventure full of lightness and passion directly into chaos and back again.
