    Wort-Musik

    Ulrich Tukur & Christian Redl Rezitation
    Olena Kushpler Klavier
    „Vom Zauber einer verwehenden Sprache –
    Deutsche Gedichte und Balladen“

    Gedichte, Balladen und Texte von Goethe und Schiller über Heine und Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger
    Musik von Schumann, Liszt et al.

    Ulrich Tukur und Christian Redl wollen an die Anfänge, an den Ursprung von Theater erinnern: Den Text, die Sprache mit der man eine gute Geschichte erzählt. Neben ihren Lieblingsgedichten haben sich beide dazu noch eine fast in Vergessenheit geratene Form ausgesucht: Die Ballade. Wie der Kriminalroman lebt sie von Spannungsmomenten und Knalleffekten. Und wie in diesem verwandten Genre geht es immer um Mord, Ehebruch, Verführung, Kindsmord und unerwiderter Liebe. Nur mit ihrer Stimme und ihrer Mimik zaubern Tukur und Redl mit Texten von Goethe über Fontane bis zu Brecht und Enzensberger phantastische Welten auf die Bühne, die, weil es immer um Schicksale von Menschen geht, tief berühren. Die Pianistin Olena Kushpler reagiert am Klavier auf die Texte mit Musikstücken u.a. von Liszt, Satie, Schönberg und Schumann, die oft zeitgleich zu den Gedichten entstanden.

    Cristina Branco vocals
    & Band

    One of the great voices of Portuguese Fado

    Luís Figueiredo, piano, eletronics
    Bernardo Couto, portuguese guitar
    Bernardo Moreira, bass

    Cristina Branco is one of the most important Portuguese voices: countless concerts all over the world and in major concert halls from the Elbphilharmonie to the Vienna Musikverein speak for themselves. Fado is the traditional song of her homeland - and it is, also traditionally, rather melancholy. In her neo-fado, she breaks with this tradition and also sings a lot about the beauties of life. “Fado is like tango”, she says, “the music of those who have a great soul”.

    American baritone Thomas Hampson has enjoyed a unique worldwide career as an opera, concert and lieder singer. He has performed nearly a hundred operatic roles, recorded over 170 albums and sung close to a thousand songs. Among these, of course, is Schubert's "Winterreise", which marks the beginning of a first collaboration with the sought-after pianist William Youn, who has received rave reviews for his complete recording of all Schubert piano sonatas on SONY.

    Russische Literaturtage

    Literarische Lesungen, Vorträge und Diskussionen sollen deshalb möglichst abwechslungsreiche Einblicke in die Vielfalt der russischen Kultur bieten – und dabei auch politische Fragen diskutieren.

    „Eine Kernschmelze von Bigband-Sound mit House und Techno-Musik.“
    (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

    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.
