    Exploring the Sound of the Violin
    A Music Workshop with Daniel Hope

    for children from the age of 8

    Daniel Hope is a world-famous violinist, at home on the great concert stages of the world. He is also a book author, a TV presenter, and much more. In April, he will be staging an entire week of music at Schloss Elmau, during which he can be experienced up close in several concerts as well as, for the first time, in a music workshop for kids & teens.
    The workshop will give children and teenagers an opportunity to meet Daniel Hope in person and learn more about his exciting day-to-day work as a professional musician.
    Besides the artist himself, the focus will also be on his instrument, the violin: What makes its sound so unique? What means of expression does it offer? And what emotions can it be used to express?
    Daniel Hope will also give a brief insight into the program of the day's concert, which follows the workshop and begins at 5:00 p.m. The workshop participants are all invited to attend the concert together.

    Diese melancholische Tragikomödie des israelischen Künstlerpaares Shira Geffen und Etgar Keret, 2007 in Cannes mit der Goldenen Kamera für den besten Debütfilm ausgezeichnet, erzählt die Geschichte dreier Frauen in Tel Aviv, deren Wege sich immer wieder kreuzen.

    Equally brilliant as a pianist, chief conductor of Rotterdam and Israel Philharmonics steps away from podium to focus on four Prokofiev sonatas

    Prokofiev: Sonatas No 4, 7, 3 & 6

    The piano sonatas of Prokofiev presented here - two from his early period and two of his War Sonatas - by Maestro Shani offer an intense overview of the times. Especially the later two which express the horror and terror of the war. Spanning his exploration of Classical, Romantic and Modern vocabularies, with his signature lyrical and grotesque lines, don‘t miss what promises to be a remarkable concert.

    Was macht große Kunst aus? Darf man Beuys einen Scharlatan nennen? Muss man Botticelli lieben? Mit Leidenschaft, Fachwissen und Witz entführen die beiden Gastgeber in ihrem monatlichen ZEIT-Podcast ihre Zuhörerinnen und Zuhörer in die wunderbare Welt der Kunst. Nun sind sie live in Schloss Elmau zu erleben.

    Sie kam oft nach Elmau, hat es sogar gemalt: Gabriele Münter (1877-1962) war eine bedeutende Expressionistin, stand aber lange im Schatten ihres Lebensgefährten Wassily Kandinsky. Über ihr Leben und Werk sprechen ZEIT-Chefredakteur Giovanni di Lorenzo und Autor und Kunsthistoriker Florian Illies in ihrem beliebten Podcast „Augen zu“ - der diesmal vor Publikum auf Schloss Elmau aufgezeichnet wird.

    Christoph Heusgen „Führung und Verantwortung – Angela Merkels Außenpolitik und Deutschlands künftige Rolle in der Welt“Warum Sie diese Veranstaltung besuchen sollten:
    Botschafter Dr. Christoph Heusgen zeigt in seinem Buch, was geschehen muss, damit Deutschland eine neue, aktive Rolle in der Welt spielen kann.

    Christoph Heusgen im Gespräch mit Dietmar Mueller-Elmau

    Botschafter Dr. Christoph Heusgen ist Vorsitzender der Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz, war von 2005 bis 2017 außen- und sicherheitspolitischer Berater von Bundeskanzlerin Dr. Angela Merkel und von 2017 bis 2021 Ständiger Vertreter der Bundesrepublik bei den Vereinten Nationen in New York City. Sehr persönlich und dabei intellektuell stets anregend beschreibt Christoph Heusgen die Herausforderungen und Weichenstellungen unter Angela Merkels Kanzlerschaft – und skizziert zugleich das Bild einer zukünftigen aktiven Politik. Wir müssen unser außenpolitisches Denken verändern: Denn der Systemwettbewerb findet nicht mehr zwischen West und Ost statt, sondern zwischen Gewalt und Recht. Und Deutschland muss in diesem Ringen eine selbstbewusste Führungsrolle übernehmen.

    The “Indian Superstars” (ZDF) are the musical highlight of the annual Yoga-Summit

    Pandit Vikash Maharaj, sarod

    They hold the title of “Tabla Maestro” and are proven masters of traditional Indian music – the tradition of the Maharaj family of musicians dates back to the 14th century. In their artful interplay, however, the broad spectrum of a unique ensemble sound also resounds, in which the siblings Prabash and Abhishek surround their father Vikash in freely improvised ragas in the traditional manner. Now the Indian superstars can be heard again at Schloss Elmau.

    “Longing for Home”

    2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Russian composer, Sergei Rachmaninoff. He, like many other artists, had to leave his country and take exile in another. Displaced artists and longing for their home are the focus of the week, with the music of Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Dvorák, Heifetz, Kreisler, and Syrian composer Kinan Azmeh. Eight concerts and a lecture bring to life this subject, with the voices of these artists as well as the music that they longed for and which shaped them.

    with Fazil Say, Mischa Maisky, Mikhail Petrenko, Boris Giltburg, Kinan Azmeh et al.

    For the past ten years, the duo BartolomeyBittmann has been delving into the development of a unique progressive repertoire for instruments deeply rooted in the classical music tradition. Their extensive musical scope ranges from powerful rock riffs and frantically virtuosic unison passages to visceral grooves and tender cantilenas.
    Their new program “z e h n” is a celebration of their ten-year anniversary as an ensemble. It consists of new pieces, most of them written while on Covid lockdown.

    Jan Wagner
    “Unterm Milchwald” (Dylan Thomas)
    Why you must attend this event:
    The legendary work of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas in a sparkling new translation by Jan Wagner, who calls “Unterm Milchwald” the finest piece of literature “ever to cross the airwaves”.

    Jan Wagner reads from his translation of Dylan Thomas' “Under Milk Wood”.
    reading in German

    The morning begins in the small fishing village of Llareggub on the Welsh coast. We follow the inhabitants into their dreams, we sit in the parlors, listen to the conversations in a tavern, peek into the bridal chambers of unmarried girls, learn about the wishes of the blind captain Cat and especially follow the secret lovers up into the milk forest. A unique “prose with blood pressure”, which seems to be bursting with images, onomatopoeia and wordplay.

    Brad Mehldau piano
    Why you must attend this concert:
    The great American pianist Brad Mehldau is the benchmark of jazz piano

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    "A Star Is Born" was the headline of a major German newspaper in the late 1990s, when Brad Mehldau gave one of his first concerts in Europe. Since then, the versatile and highly creative keyboard-magician has unfolded an unprecedented international career, establishing himself as a bandleader and composer alike. His solo evening in Schloss Elmau will certainly not be a "back to the roots", as the rate at which Brad Mehldau reinvents himself is without equal.
