    Author's reading

    Axel Hacke
    “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.

    Casal Quartett
    “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.

    with the O/modernt string quartet &
    Dr. Martina Taubenberger music mediator

    A work for string quartet is played, perhaps without prior knowledge, in any case without a programme booklet and without an introduction. Afterwards, the presenter and the artists talk about the background and characteristics of the piece, which is then performed a second time.

    Comparison of Interpretations
    Goldmund Quartet & Meta4 string quartet
    Oliver Wille moderation

    Oliver Wille, chamber music professor in Hanover and member of the Kuss Quartet, sharpens the ear for how strongly the personality, attitude and composition of an ensemble influences the interpretation of works. 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.
