    Michael Maar
    “Die Schlange im Wolfspelz. Das Geheimnis großer Literatur”

    Moderation: Ijoma Mangold

    What is the secret of good style, how does language become literature?
    The Germanist, writer and literary critic Michael Maar presents his new book.

    What is the secret of good style, how does language become literature? Michael Maar explores this question in his main and life's work, for which he spent forty years reading. What is manner, what is jargon, and what are the pitfalls that almost everyone falls into? How must the elementary particles interact for the perfect prose sentence? Maar shows who can do dialogue and who can't, why Hölderlin is overrated and Rahel Varnhagen underrated, why without the Austrian Jews a continent of style would disappear, why Kafka is an alien and why only Heimito von Doderer comes close to Thomas Mann. In fifty portraits, from Goethe to Gernhardt, from Kleist to Kronauer, he unfolds en passant a history of German literature.

    Benjamin Constant
    „Adolphe“

    Jens Harzer, Lesung
    Erich Wolfgang Skwara, Übersetzung

    Ein zeitloser Roman über die Schattierungen der Liebe –
    und die Schuld, die man auf sich lädt, wenn die Liebe endet.

    begrenztes Kartenkontingent für Bewohner der Region

    Zu Beginn des Jahres 1807 notierte Benjamin Constant in seinem Tagebuch: „Ich werden einen Roman schreiben, der meine Geschichte ist.“ Bereits fünfzehn Tage später ist ein Klassiker geboren: zeitlos durch die erschütternde Authentizität des Selbsterlittenen, doch in seinem Zwang zur Selbstbeobachtung geradezu aktuell.

    Dan Diner
    “Ein anderer Krieg”

    Das jüdische Palästina und der Zweite Weltkrieg 1935 – 1942

    In German

    Dieses Buch des renommierten deutsch-israelischen Historikers erzählt die Anatomie des Zweiten Weltkrieges aus einer ungewohnten Perspektive: Im Zentrum des Geschehens steht das jüdische Palästina, gelegen am Schnittpunkt der europäisch-kontinentalen und außereuropäisch-kolonialen Wahrnehmung. Die Kernzeit dieser raumgeschichtlich angelegten Erzählung liegt zwischen dem Abessinien-Krieg 1935 und den Schlachten von El Alamein und Stalingrad 1942. Die Verschränkung zweier, für sich jeweils anderer Kriege – dem Zweiten Weltkrieg und dem Kampf um Palästina – konstruiert das eigentliche Drama der Erzählung und durchzieht als roter Faden das Buch. Es entsteht ein dichtes Gewebe von Ereignisfacetten, das im global geschilderten Großereignis des Zweiten Weltkrieges durch eine besondere Sicht bislang wenig beachtete Konturen hervortreten lässt.

    Dmitrij Kapitelman
    “Eine Formalie in Kiew”

    With bittersweet humour, Dmitrij Kapitelman tells of his family, which lost its homeland, and his attempt to become German.

    Dmitrij Kapitelman can speak Saxon better than the official to whom he applies for a German passport. After 25 years as a compatriot, most of his life. But no formality is too small for the bureaucracy when it comes to immigrants. Ms Kunze demands an apostille from Kiev. So he travels to the city of his birth, with which nothing connects him except childhood memories. These memories are beautiful, for they contain loving, unfailing parents. And difficult, because at present the family is divided. Until fate brings them together again in Kiev.

    Open Air at the Elmauer Alm

    Classical and new folk music with alpine flair
    Moderation: Franziska Eimer

    Als Nachfolgeformation der legendären „Biermösl Blosn“ gründete Karli Well mit seinen Brüdern Stofferl und Michael im Jahr 2012 die „Well-Brüder aus’m Biermoos“. In bayerischer Mundart und mit pointierten satirischen Texten nehmen die Multiinstrumentalisten das politische Geschehen Bayerns und derrestlichen Welt aufs Korn. Auch der jüngeren Generation der Musikerfamilie Well wurde das Talent, die Bühnenlust und der Humor mitgegeben. Als „nouWell cousines“ haben sie jedoch ihren eigenen Stil enwickelt – genreübergreifend, weltoffen und regional verwurzelt. Als musikalische Leiterin der BR Musik-Talkshow „Z’am Rocken“ (Bayerischer Rundfunk) sowie des renommierten „Musikantentreff im Hofbräuhaus“ bringt die Harfenistin Franziska Eimer regelmäßig bayerische Musiker mit Musikern aus verschiedenen Kulturen und Stilen zusammen. Mit den Musikern der nouWell cousines und den Well-Brüdern steht die Harfenistin schon seit vielen Jahren auf der Bühne.

    “...I predict her a great future...”
    Grigory Sokolov on Alexandra Dovgan

    Chopin: 4 Ballades &
    Andante spianato et Grande Polonaise brillante Op 22

    “This is one of those rare occasions. The eleven-year-old pianist Alexandra Dovgan can hardly be called a wonder child, for while this is a wonder, it is not child’s play. What one hears is a performance by a grown-up individual and a person. It is a special pleasure for me to commend the art of her remarkable music teacher, Mira Marchenko. Yet there are things that cannot be taught and learned. Alexandra Dovgan’s talent is exceptionally harmonious. Her playing is honest and concentrated. I predict a great future for her…“

    Dieter Kosslick
    “Immer auf dem Teppich bleiben.
    Von magischen Momenten und der Zukunft des Kinos”

    Dieter Kosslick calls for saving cinema – and describes how this can succeed. He describes his love for film, his adventurous experiences as head of the Berlinale and why he is convinced that films can change the world.

    Dieter Kosslick has experienced a lot as head of the Berlinale: whether he had to bring a major construction site to a standstill so that the Rolling Stones could sleep or persuaded Clint Eastwood to come to Berlin. But more important to him than stars and glamour was always the claim to show films that hold up a mirror to society in order to change it with the power of art. His mottos shortly after the turn of the millennium were “Accept Diversity” and “Towards Tolerance”. The Berlinale underwent sustainable and climate-friendly changes, becoming the world's first CO2-certified film festival, and a commitment to justice and human dignity shaped the festival's character.
    But with Corona, cinema has also been plunged into a severe crisis that has become existential with the rise of streaming services. In this personal and anecdote-rich book, Dieter Kosslick tells us what we owe to cinema and why we must save it.

    Super-class summit meeting "made in Schloss Elmau": Jazz pianist and composer Brad Mehldau and tenor Ian Bostridge met a few years ago in Schloss Elmau. They both wanted to work together, and so Brad Mehldau composed a classical song cycle for Ian Bostridge, which has celebrated its world premiere in Schloss Elmau before the duo embarked on a concert tour through the great concert halls including the Elbphilharmonie.

    Please note: due to the adult nature of some Lied texts (inc. Brecht), this concert is not recommended for children and teenagers.

    “Besuch in der Hölle”

    700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri

    More than the Bible, Dante's Divine Comedy has shaped our idea of hell and paradise. How could a work in Italian from the 14th century, which even contemporaries could only decipher with the help of commentaries, become a global cultural treasure? Romance scholar Franziska Meier follows the intricate history of this millennium book, whose fame is matched only by Homer's Odyssey and Shakespeare's dramas.

    Rüdiger Safranski
    “Einzeln sein”

    In German

    Jeder Mensch ist zunächst einmal ein Einzelner. Das kann zur Belastung werden, vor der ein Leben in Gemeinschaft schützt, das kann aber auch den Ehrgeiz wecken, die eigene Individualität zu kultivieren. Zwischen beiden Polen unserer Existenz hat es immer wieder eindrucksvolle Versuche gegeben, einzeln zu sein. Davon erzählt Rüdiger Safranski in seinem neuen Buch. Er beginnt bei Michel de Montaigne und führt über Rousseau, Diderot, Kierkegaard, Stirner und Thoreau bis zur existentialistischen Philosophie des 20. Jahrhunderts. Dabei nähert er sich aus immer anderen Richtungen der Frage, wie weit wir es ertragen, Einzelne zu sein – eine Frage, die sich ganz überraschend in unser alltägliches Leben gedrängt hat.

    Alexander Gorkow
    “Die Kinder hören Pink Floyd”

    Moderation: Rachel Salamander

    Reading in German

    Die 70er-Jahre. Eine Vorstadt. Das Westdeutschland der letzten Baulücken, der verstockten Altnazis, der gepflegten Gärten. Die Kriegsgräuel sind beiseitegeschoben, zum Essen geht es in den Balkan Grill, die Einbauküche daheim überzeugt durch optimale Raumnutzung. Für den 10-jährigen Jungen aber ist es eine Welt der Magie, der geheimen Kräfte, des Kampfs des Bösen gegen das Gute. Der Leitstern des Jungen in diesem Kampf ist die große Schwester – das Kind Nr. 1 der Familie. Sie ist herzkrank und sehr lebenshungrig. Mit trockenem Humor und großer Aufsässigkeit stemmt sie sich gegen alle Bedrohungen, nicht zuletzt mithilfe der vergötterten Band Pink Floyd aus dem fernen London, den Kämpfern gegen das Establishment, deren Songs alles zum Glänzen bringen.

    & Friends
    AIR – A baroque Journey

    Works by Handel, Vivaldi, Westhoff et al.

    Daniel Hope and his ensemble take the listener on a journey through musical baroque, a journey that is also a history of the violin and its origins. Hope plays works by Handel, Vivaldi and Westhoff and numerous musical discoveries by lesser-known composers who also roamed Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries in search of inspiration and new impulses. A brilliant evening full of sparkling music!

    “Square für Künstler: “Freiheit und ihre Feinde”
    Carte Blanche für Daniel Hope

    Daniel Hope, violinist & music manager
    Dietmar Mueller-Elmau, managing director Schloss Elmau

    Screening (duration c. 30 mins.) and talk in German

    Freiheit ist dem Geiger Daniel Hope wichtig. In Südafrika geboren, in London aufgewachsen, lebt er heute in Berlin. Seine Konzertreisen führen ihn immer wieder auch auf Schloss Elmau. Wie Dietmar Mueller-Elmau beinahe gegen seinen Willen Besitzer dieses Top-Wellnesshotels wurde, erzählt er in Hopes Film für „Square“. Aber auch, wie er sich immer wieder neue Freiheiten nimmt und alte Hindernisse überwindet.

    Sophie Scholl – Love in Times of Resistance

    The correspondence between Fritz Hartnagel and Sophie Scholl

    with Henrike Hahn and Jonathan Hutter
    and music by Rahel Hutter

    Reading in German

    Henrike Hahn and Jonathan Hutter approach the personalities of Sophie Scholl and Fritz Hartnagel together with the musician Rahel Hutter. The three actors take the audience back to the time of World War II and bring this unusual and moving love story to the stage.
    They show two young personalities who struggle for their views and convictions, endure opposition and do not give up searching for the truth. Sophie Scholl, as a member of the White Rose resistance group, will pay for her fight against the Nazi regime of injustice with death.

    „Kopfkissenbuch“

    Lesung

    Sibylle Canonica, Lesung
    Dr. Evelyn Schulz, Einführung
    Eine poetische Zeitreise an den japanischen Kaiserhof um 1000 n. Chr.

    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.

    Milena Michiko Flašar
    „Ich nannte ihn Krawatte"

    Autorenlesung & Gespräch

    Ist es Zufall oder eine Entscheidung? Auf einer Parkbank begegnen sich zwei Menschen. Der eine alt, der andere jung, zwei aus dem Rahmen Gefallene. Nach und nach erzählen sie einander ihr Leben und setzen behutsam wieder einen Fuß auf die Erde.

    Nur wenige sorgfältig gewählte Worte benötigt Milena Michiko Flašar, um ihre Figuren zum Leben zu erwecken, nur wenige Szenen, um ganze Schicksale zu erzählen. Ein junger Mann verlässt sein Zimmer, in dem er offenbar lange Zeit eingeschlossen war, tastet sich durch eine fremde Welt. Eine Bank im Park wird ihm Zuflucht und Behausung, dort öffnet er die Augen, beginnt zu sprechen und teilt mit einem wildfremden Menschen seine Erinnerungen. Der andere ist viele Jahre älter, ein im Büro angestellter Salaryman wie Tausende. Er erzählt seinerseits, über Tage und Wochen hinweg, Szenen eines Lebens voller Furcht und Ohnmacht, Hoffnung und Glück. Beide sind Außenseiter, die dem Leistungsdruck nicht standhalten, die allein in der Verweigerung aktiv werden. Aus der Erfahrung, dass Zuneigung in Nahrung verpackt, Trauer im Lachen verborgen werden kann und Freundschaften möglich sind, stärken sie sich für einen endgültigen Abschied und einen Anfang.

    „Auf schmalen Pfaden durchs Hinterland“

    Lesung

    Axel Milberg, Lesung
    Renkei Hashimoto, Shakuhachi-Musik
    Dr. 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.

    “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.

    “the birth of the string quartet I”

    Works from Scarlatti to Haydn

    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.

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.
