    Jellyfish
    (Hebr. Meduzot)

    Filmvorführung im Konzertsaal
    Regie: Etgar Keret & Shira Geffen

    Diese melancholische Tragikomödie des israelischen Künstlerpaares Shira Geffen und Etgar Keret, 2007 in Cannes mit der Goldenen Kamera für den besten Debütfilm ausgezeichnet, erzählt die Geschichte dreier Frauen in Tel Aviv, deren Wege sich immer wieder kreuzen. Die Zuschauer werden bewusst im Unklaren darüber gelassen, ob es sich bei den einzelnen Episoden, die über das Thema Wasser bzw. über das Meer miteinander verwoben sind, um die Realität oder um einen Traum handelt.

    Christoph Heusgen „Führung und Verantwortung – Angela Merkels Außenpolitik und Deutschlands künftige Rolle in der Welt“Warum Sie diese Veranstaltung besuchen sollten:
    Botschafter Dr. Christoph Heusgen zeigt in seinem Buch, was geschehen muss, damit Deutschland eine neue, aktive Rolle in der Welt spielen kann.

    Christoph Heusgen im Gespräch mit Dietmar Mueller-Elmau

    Botschafter Dr. Christoph Heusgen ist Vorsitzender der Münchner Sicherheitskonferenz, war von 2005 bis 2017 außen- und sicherheitspolitischer Berater von Bundeskanzlerin Dr. Angela Merkel und von 2017 bis 2021 Ständiger Vertreter der Bundesrepublik bei den Vereinten Nationen in New York City. Sehr persönlich und dabei intellektuell stets anregend beschreibt Christoph Heusgen die Herausforderungen und Weichenstellungen unter Angela Merkels Kanzlerschaft – und skizziert zugleich das Bild einer zukünftigen aktiven Politik. Wir müssen unser außenpolitisches Denken verändern: Denn der Systemwettbewerb findet nicht mehr zwischen West und Ost statt, sondern zwischen Gewalt und Recht. Und Deutschland muss in diesem Ringen eine selbstbewusste Führungsrolle übernehmen.

    Yoga-Summit Concert 2023:
    Maharaj Trio
    Why you must attend this concert:
    The "Indian Superstars" ZDF) are the musical highlight of the annual Yoga-Summit

    “Indian Super Stars” (ZDF) with 500 Years of musical legacy

    Pandit Vikash Maharaj, sarod
    Abhishek Maharaj, sitar & vocals
    Prabhash Maharaj, tabla

    They hold the title of "Tabla Maestro" and are proven masters of traditional Indian music - the tradition of the Maharaj family of musicians dates back to the 14th century. In their artful interplay, however, the broad spectrum of a unique ensemble sound also resounds, in which the siblings Prabash and Abhishek surround their father Vikash in freely improvised ragas in the traditional manner. Now the Indian superstars can be heard again at Schloss Elmau.

    Tokarczuk's first novel in nearly a decade and her first novel after winning the 2019 Nobel Prize

    Moderation: Olga Mannheimer

    September 1913, in Lower Silesia. In the middle of mountains stands the first sanatorium for lung diseases. Mieczyslaw Wojnicz, an engineering student, hopes that a new kind of treatment and the crystal-clear air will stop his illness. But the small world also offers plenty to talk about: the day after Mieczyslaw's arrival, the innkeeper's wife committed suicide. In general, mysterious deaths occur frequently. What Mieczyslaw doesn't know is that dark forces are also out to get him.

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.

    For the past ten years, the duo BartolomeyBittmann has been delving into the development of a unique progressive repertoire for instruments deeply rooted in the classical music tradition. Their extensive musical scope ranges from powerful rock riffs and frantically virtuosic unison passages to visceral grooves and tender cantilenas.
    Their new program “z e h n” is a celebration of their ten-year anniversary as an ensemble. It consists of new pieces, most of them written while on Covid lockdown.

    Ludovico Einaudi piano
    Concert I

    BOOK YOUR STAY:
    Arrival Thursday, 31 August
    Departure Sunday, 3 September or later

    The celebrated composer and pianist fills large stadiums and stages worldwide. With his fascinating soundscapes, which oscillate between minimalist clarity and rushing fullness, he always leaves his audience entranced – whether in the sold-out Royal Albert Hall or on the huge Berlin Waldbühne. The Italian star also comes to Schloss Elmau with great pleasure to work, compose, make music and record CDs. For him, Elmau is, he said, “a paradise” and a “dream place.” What luck to see him in 2023 with 2 concerts at once!
