    Ludovico Einaudi piano
    Concert I

    BOOK YOUR STAY:
    Arrival Thursday, 31 August
    Departure Sunday, 3 September or later


    Due to high interest, hotel guests can only be guaranteed a seat at the event if they book in advance.

    The celebrated composer and pianist fills large stadiums and stages worldwide. With his fascinating soundscapes, which oscillate between minimalist clarity and rushing fullness, he always leaves his audience entranced – whether in the sold-out Royal Albert Hall or on the huge Berlin Waldbühne. The Italian star also comes to Schloss Elmau with great pleasure to work, compose, make music and record CDs. For him, Elmau is, he said, “a paradise” and a “dream place.” What luck to see him in 2023 with 2 concerts at once!

    Literaturtage

    Literaturtage „Tagebücher“
    Medien der Selbstvergewisserung als literarische Gattung

    Kaum etwas ist privater als ein Tagebuch. Dennoch – oder gerade deswegen – sind manche Tagebücher in die Literaturgeschichte eingegangen. Keine andere Form des Schreibens ist so subjektiv, keine vermittelt einen ähnlich frischen Eindruck des gerade Erlebten. Die Geschichte dieser speziellen Art des autobiographischen Schreibens reicht von der Antike bis zu öffentlichen Blogs im Internet. Sie zeigt den Wandel im Selbstverständnis des Menschen im Verhältnis zur Geschichte.

    Auftaktveranstaltung am Sonntagabend, 19. November, Abschlussveranstaltung am Donnerstagabend, 23. November

    Book presentation

    Timothy Garton Ash
    “Europa – Eine persönliche Geschichte”
    Why you must attend this event:
    „Timothy Garton Ash is one of the world's most influential political publicists.“ (Joachim Gärtner, ARD TTT)

    in German

    DETAILS ABOUT THE BOOK

    Timothy Garton Ash is a passionate European. Even before 1989, he refused to accept the division of the continent, and he fought against Brexit until the very end. Now he is writing his own personal history of Europe. He tells of friends like Václav Havel, recalls the fall of the Berlin Wall and provides an analysis of recent history. The attack on Ukraine shows how urgently we need a free and united continent – no one embodies this idea more convincingly than Timothy Garton Ash.
