    Robert Landfermann, bass
    Jonas Burgwinkel, drums

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    The trio around jazz pianist Pablo Held is currently one of the liveliest and most important formations in European jazz. Crossing the boundaries between composition and improvisation and the risk of radical spontaneity are as much a part of the ensemble's aesthetic as the close friendship between the musicians.

    Listening Session:
    “HOME.S.”
    by Esbjörn Svensson piano

    Exclusive presentation of the solo album before realease at ACT on 18 November
    with Eva Svensson, wife of Esbjörn Svensson († 2008)

    In all music, there are figures whose works influence a genre as a whole. In jazz, this undoubtedly applies to the Swede Esbjörn Svensson. With e.s.t. Esbjörn Svensson Trio, the pianist and composer left a lasting mark on a new understanding of the piano trio and inspired a worldwide audience beyond age and genre boundaries. His influence still reverberates today, already in the second and third generation of musicians. And Svensson is also unforgotten by the public. On 18 November 2022, HOME.S., Esbjörn Svensson's first, previously unreleased solo album, will be released on the ACT label. On 16 November, visitors to the European Jazz Festival at Schloss Elmau will be able to hear this music together for the first time. On a surround sound system designed by e.s.t. sound engineer Åke Linton. And together with Esbjörn Svensson's wife Eva Svensson.

    Florian Favre piano
    “Idantitâ”

    “This is so tasteful and has so much style that it encourages you to start right over again” (Roland Spiegel, BR-Klassik).

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    There are stories of elves, mountains, forced exile and naïve beauty – the heritage of a complex and captivating land. With “Idantitâ”, Florian Favre reworks and retouches the traditions of his region, bringing them back into the flow of human interaction and the wonderful potential of connection between each of us. “Idantitâ” was Album of the Month on several German radio stations (SRW2, BR-Klassik), on the cover of Open Jazz on France Musique, some claim that this music has “enchanting” powers (T. Raboud, la liberté).

    “Ghosts”

    „Der vollkommene Klaviermeister“ (FAZ) mit neuem Trio-Programm

    Michael Wollny, piano
    Eric Schaefer, drums
    Tim Lefebvre, bass

    “As an improviser, you often don't play the compositions, but much more your own memories of them, which come back to you the moment you play, continuing their existence in the here and now,“ says pianist and composer Michael Wollny about his new album “Ghosts”, which will be released on ACT in September 2022. The album, which he recorded with his successful trio, is a collection of some of these memories – or “ghosts” - that regularly haunt Wollny, ranging from classics like Franz Schubert's “Erlkönig” to jazz standards and darkly iridescent original compositions.

    Bigband jazz made in Bavaria. The Jazzrausch Bigband has made it its mission to inspire its audience with creative music-making. 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.

    & Band

    LISTEN IN HERE!

    The Kora is a West African harp instrument with 21 strings, traditionally played by men. Sona Jobarteh has broken this old rule! She plays the kora standing up and demonstrates her complex musical skills on stage as the front woman of her own band. In her compositions she uniquely combines the influences of modern music with traditional African music and thus remains connected to the roots of her homeland.

    „Ich schreibe Filme.
    Ingmar Bergmans Arbeitstagebücher 1955-2001“

    Renate Bleibtreu, Übersetzerin & Herausgeberin
    Jens Harzer, Lesung & Gespräch

    Im Anschluss an die Lesung wird Ingmar Bergmans Film „Wilde Erdbeeren“ gezeigt.

    Sein langes kreatives Leben über führte Ingmar Bergman Arbeitstagebücher: kleine Spiralhefte, in denen er erste Entwürfe seiner Geschichten niederschrieb und auch während der Arbeit an einem Film oder Buch weiter Notizen machte. Diese Auswahl aus den Heften bietet nun einen einzigartigen Einblick in seinen kreativen Arbeitsprozess, zeigt aber auch den Menschen und Künstler Bergman noch einmal ganz neu. Es ist nicht zuletzt ein Bericht darüber, wie ein großer Künstler seine unvergesslichen Geschichten und Bilder zum Leben erweckt.

    „Persona“
    von Ingmar Bergman

    Juliane Köhler und Evgenia Dodina in einer Inszenierung von Amélie Niermeyer

    Gastauftritt. Mit freundlicher Genehmigung des Residenztheaters.

    Die Schauspielerin Elisabet Vogler ist während einer „Elektra“-Vorstellung plötzlich verstummt. Sie hat seit drei Monaten nicht gesprochen und wird der Pflege einer Krankenschwester anvertraut.
    Zwischen den beiden Frauen, der schweigenden und der sprechenden, entwickelt sich eine intensive Beziehung bis an die Grenzen der absoluten Identifikation, der Identitätsauflösung. Da Elisabet als körperlich und geistig gesund gilt, muss ihr Verstummen als ein willentlicher Akt, als Widerstandshandlung verstanden werden. Das Problem von Sprache als Mittel der Verständigung steht im Zentrum des Films „Persona“ von Ingmar Bergman aus dem Jahr 1966.

    Shostakovitch: String quartet No 8
    Original compositions for string quartet and guitar

    The Vision String Quartet, founded in 2012, is currently turning the classical concert world upside down with their unique ability to “walk” between the classical string quartet repertoire and their own compositions from genres such as folk or pop. Now the four young musicians from Berlin have teamed up with the Iranian-Australian guitarist and composer Mahan Mirarab, who for many years has been working just as intensively with indigenous music from Arab countries as with compositions from classical music, jazz and pop. The artists will present some of the new compositions that have emerged from this exciting collaboration following Shostakovich's 8th String Quartet.

    A tribute to Jenny Lind, the great Swedish soprano of the 18th century

    Camilla Tilling, who has been performing on the world's leading opera and concert stages for over two decades, was a recipient in her early years of the Jenny Lind Scholarship and has had strong associations to the great 19th century soprano throughout her career. Tilling's new programme centres around Jenny Lind and her close friendships with Schumann and Mendelssohn. She will present this programme for the first time at Schloss Elmau together with the renowned Lied pianist Jonathan Ware before going on tour with it.

    Concert with interval. Concert-experienced children aged 10 and above, who can sit still during the concert, are welcome to attend.

    The unique character of music played live is a crucial aspect of understanding the expressive beauty and compelling honesty of Grigory Sokolov's art. His poetic interpretations, which come alive with mystical intensity in the concert hall, are based on an in-depth knowledge of the repertoire. His programmes span the entire history of music: from transcriptions of sacred polyphony of the Middle Ages and works by Couperin, Rameau and Bach, to the Classical and Romantic repertoire and key compositions of the 20th century. Now Grigory Sokolov returns to Schloss Elmau – with what is sure to be a compelling and impressive concert evening.
