    cinema in the concert hall:
    ”Monday um Zehn“

    After the screening audience discussion with the director Mareille Klein

    cast:
    Ulrike Willenbacher, Residenztheater München
    Zbigniew Zamachowski
    et al.

    The film takes an ironic, loving look behind the bourgeois facade of a 62-year-old woman who realizes she's stuck when she crashes through the floor of her living room. Will her encounter with Polish cleaner Ryszard give her life a new direction? A story of late happiness, told both tenderly and laconically – and the danger of immediately putting it at risk again in the field of tension between bourgeois sensitivities.

    At this year's Munich Film Festival, MONDAY UM ZEHN was nominated three times for the Promotional Award and was awarded the Critics' Prize by the international FIPRESCI jury.

    This concert evening focuses on two young cellists – Kian Soltani and Pablo Ferrández, whose biographies could not be more impressive: one a chamber music partner of Daniel Barenboim, the other OPUS Klassik winner 2021, plus concerts with the world's greatest orchestras and high-profile recording contracts. At their side are the no less wonderful string players Yamen Saadi and Sara Ferrández for an exquisite evening of chamber music.

    Author's reading

    Axel Hacke
    “Alle Jahre schon wieder”

    A cheerful and contemplative evening about Christmas in childhood and as an adult, about misunderstood Christmas carols and also about a little king called December.

    Axel Hacke's readings are as funny as they are whimsical, as spontaneous as they are carefully planned. And because he has written countless stories in decades as an author and columnist (including a whole book about Christmas), there are plenty of anecdotes, columns, stories for a humorous and profound afternoon, including a short textual review of a very special, crazy year.

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.

    “What Our Fathers Did”
    with Niklas Frank & Philippe Sands

    Niklas Frank, journalist & author of “Der Vater”
    Philippe Sands, professor of law at University College London & author of “Rückkehr Nach Lemberg (East West Street)”

    Following a screening of the BBC documentary “My Nazi Legacy: What Our Fathers Did”, in which they appear, Philippe Sands and Niklas Frank discuss the themes of family, memory and responsibility that arise in Philippe's most recent book “The Ratline/Die Rattenlinie”. This story is based on the personal archive of Charlotte and Otto Wächter, now in the ownership of their son Horst. Otto Wächter was the Nazi Governor of Krakow and then District Galicia (Lemberg), and a deputy to Hans Frank. While Frank was tried, convicted and hanged, Wächter was indicted but escaped and died in mysterious circumstances in Rome in 1949, while hoping to escape to Argentina.

    Casal Quartett
    “the birth of the string quartet I”

    Works by Scarlatti, Telemann, Haydn, Mozart et al.

    Die Entstehung der wichtigsten Gattung der Kammermusik ist untrennbar mit Haydn und Boccherini verbunden. Wie ein Lauffeuer verbreitete sich die Faszination des Streichquartetts. Neben seinem verehrten Zeitgenossen Haydn wurde Mozart dessen wichtigster Exponent im 18. Jahrhundert. Aber bereits vor 1750 entwickelten europaweit verschiedene Komponisten die Loslösung der Vierstimmigkeit vom Basso continuo, allen voran die Italiener Scarlatti mit dem frühesten Beispiel eines Streicherwerkes ohne Cembalo und Giovanni B. Sammartini, als Mittler zwischen Barock und Klassik. Die aufregenden Neuerungen Telemanns und der beiden Wiener Komponisten, wären ohne diese Vorbilder nicht denkbar gewesen.

    Schubert: String quartet “Death and the Maiden” D 810, 2nd mvt.

    Oliver Wille, chamber music professor in Hanover and member of the Kuss Quartet, sharpens the ear for how strongly the personality, attitude and composition of an ensemble influences the interpretation of works. Two string quartets explore one and the same movement from the musical world literature and determine their individual readings in exchange with the presenter and the audience.

    Anna Gréta is one of the most interesting young discoveries of “Nordic Jazz”. Sophisticated piano craftsmanship meets a haunting voice and multi-faceted songwriting. She combines elements of jazz, pop and folk, creating a Nordic sound that her native Iceland has given her. She grew up near the capital Reykjavík, but Anna Greta's adopted home is Sweden, where she is a multi-award-winning “rising star.” She received the Monica Zetterlund Award there in 2019, for example, and played at the Nobel Prize ceremony in 2020.

    Uwe Wittstock
    „Februar 33 – Der Winter der Literatur“

    in German

    Es ging rasend schnell. Der Februar 1933 war der Monat, in dem sich auch für die Schriftsteller in Deutschland alles entschied. Uwe Wittstock erzählt die Chronik eines angekündigten und doch nicht für möglich gehaltenen Todes. Von Tag zu Tag verfolgt er, wie das glanzvolle literarische Leben der Weimarer Zeit in wenigen Wochen einem langen Winter wich und sich das Netz für Thomas Mann und Bertolt Brecht, für Else Lasker-Schüler, Alfred Döblin und viele andere immer fester zuzog. Wer schmiegt sich den neuen Machthabern an, wer muss um sein Leben fürchten und fliehen? Auf der Grundlage von teils unveröffentlichtem Archivmaterial entsteht ein ungeheuer dichtes Bild einer ungeheuren Zeit.

    „Marx, Wagner, Nietzsche – Welt im Umbruch“

    in German

    Marx, Wagner, Nietzsche – diese drei Denker haben das 19. wie das 20. Jahrhundert tief beeinflusst. Als Zeitgenossen, die sich wechselseitig mit Verehrung, Ablehnung oder Ignoranz gegenüberstanden, prägten sie eine Zeit von enormer wissenschaftlicher Vielfalt und gesellschaftlicher Dynamik. Ihre Antagonismen und Widersprüche führen ins Herz der deutschen Entwicklung. Herfried Münkler folgt diesen drei faszinierenden Gestalten und ruft damit eine ganze Epoche wach.

    Author's reading & talk

    Navid Kermani
    „Morgen ist da. Reden“

    Wie bedankt man sich angemessen für einen Preis, der einem zunächst aberkannt worden ist? Wie erklärt man Amerika kurz nach der Wahl Donald Trumps seine Liebe? Was sagt ein Deutscher mit iranischen Wurzeln über Auschwitz? Welche Worte bleiben am Grab des eigenen Vaters? Und kann ein Kölner objektiv bleiben, wenn er über den 1. FC Köln spricht? Navid Kermani scheut in seinen großen Reden keine Herausforderung und fordert damit auch seine Zuhörer heraus, sich von bekannten Denkmustern zu lösen. In seinem ureigenen Spannungsfeld von klassischer deutscher Literatur, islamischer Mystik, amerikanischer Gegenkultur und europäischem Geist findet Kermani immer neue Gedankenbögen, die auch den Leser bis zur letzten Zeile fesseln. So beseelt spricht gegenwärtig kein zweiter Deutscher zu uns, taktvoll und provokant zugleich, mit Pathos, wo es angemessen ist, und in einem Rhythmus, der fast schon Musik ist.

    Vladyslav Sendecki piano

    “Solace”

    Two equally distinguished and internationally respected Jazz-musicians have come together to explore a new, independent sound between piano and percussion. Pianist Vladyslav Sendecki, a heavyweight of the European jazz scene, and his counterpart, percussionist Jürgen Spiegel, normally internationally acclaimed with the Tingvall Trio, have refined their duo concept even further on their brand new album and program “SOLACE”: powerful and intimate, even psychedelic, but always playfully liberated and spontaneous. The “Smallest Orchestra in the World” takes the listener on a journey full of vitality, imagination and power.

    Autor's reading & talk

    Navid Kermani
    „Jeder soll von da, wo er ist, einen Schritt näher kommen – Fragen nach Gott“

    Herausragend, poetisch und kraftvoll über die kleinen Wunder des Lebens

    Navid Kermani liest aus seinem neuen Buch (Erscheinungstermin: Frühjahr 2022)

    „Als er im Krankenhaus lag, sollte ich Opa versprechen, dich den Islam zu lehren, wenn er nicht mehr da ist, unseren Islam, den Islam, mit dem ich aufgewachsen bin.“ So beginnt ein Vater Abend für Abend seiner Tochter zu erzählen – nicht nur von seiner eigenen Religion, sondern von dem, was alle Gläubigen eint, von Gott und dem Tod, von der Liebe und der Unendlichkeit um uns herum. Dieses sehr persönliche Buch ist nicht nur Verzauberung und literarisches Meisterstück, sondern ein wahrer Erkenntnisgewinn, gerade weil Navid Kermani auch ins Dunkle zu schreiben wagt und damit seiner, unserer Ratlosigkeit einen Ausdruck gibt. Und weil seine Sprache, seine Offenheit, sein Wissen aus zwei Kulturen einzigartig sind, so hell und so tief.
