    Why you must hear:
    The famous tales of "1001 Nights" in the new translation by Claudia Ott bring the magic of the Orient to life

    Great love - great stories! "The Book of Love" contains a cloverleaf of four breathtakingly beautiful, terrible and erotic love dramas from the oldest sources of "One Thousand and One Nights". Translator Claudia Ott's great art is evident in the way she has so faithfully and so freshly translated the oldest manuscripts into a present-day language that one is transported in wonder to an Orient full of beauty, danger, magic and love.

    „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.

    Camilla Tilling soprano

    Schumann, Mendelssohn & Chopin
    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.

    Andreas Schaerer vocals
    Kalle Kalima guitar
    „21 Songs“

    Andreas Schaerer and Kalle Kalima focus on existential music with “21 Songs”. Their musical eruptions are deeply rooted in the archaic primordial magma of music history. Inoculated as teenagers with the music of Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, they connect the trials and tribulations of our new millennium with the cosmic heartbeat of the Big Bang.
    The extraordinary vocal virtuoso Andreas Schaerer, and the equally versatile Finnish guitarist Kalle Kalima are both regulars on the stages of Europe. Since May 2016, they have been performing together as members of the internationally acclaimed quartet “A Novel of Anomaly”. In Elmau, they now meet in an intimate duo line-up. An intense emotional pull awaits the audience.

    Grigory Sokolov piano

    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.

    “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. Seven concerts and three readings and talks bring to life this subject, with the voices of these artists as well as the music that they longed for and which shaped them.
