    Thomas Quasthoff Quartett
    “For You” – Concert to mark Thomas Quasthoff's 50th stage anniversary
    Why you must attend this concert:
    Thomas Quasthoff thanks his audience for 50 years of loyalty with his new programme “For you“

    Thomas Quasthoff, vocals
    Simon Oslender, keys
    Dieter Ilg, bass
    Wolfgang Haffner, drums

    There is hardly a musical summit that singer Thomas Quasthoff has not yet stormed. It is no coincidence that the three-time Grammy winner and recipient of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany is one of Germany's most important artistic personalities. In the year of his 50th stage anniversary, the artist will once again showcase his full diversity when he performs one of his anniversary concerts at Schloss Elmau - a venue with which he has a long history and numerous concerts.

    Claire Huangci piano
    Why you must attend this concert:
    “If looking for characteristics of Huangci’s piano playing, one finds them in her superior focus, imaginative abilities and the resulting poetry of her interpretation” (NZZ)

    Mussorgsky: Pictures at an exhibition
    Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
    et al.

    The American pianist Claire Huangci is the winner of the first prize and the Mozart Prize at the important Concours Géza Anda 2018. She gives guest performances worldwide with important orchestras and plays piano recitals in the major concert halls. The Salzburger Nachrichten attested to her “glittering virtuosity, creative sovereignty, wide-awake interaction and subtle sound dramaturgy”. Inspired by an irrepressible spirit of exploration, she demonstrates her versatility with an unusually broad repertoire. She is also an ambassador for G. Henle Verlag.

    The Swiss instrument Hang, an sounding body with a meditative sound, has made the Tyrolean Manu Delago a star – and a video on YouTube that was clicked almost 5 million times. He is responsible for sold-out houses from India to Mexico, from the USA to Germany. World stars like the Icelandic pop icon work closely with him. Now the Tyrolean musician and composer can be experienced for the first time in Schloss Elmau and presents a splendid interplay of experimental pop, detail-loving electronics and rocky chamber music.

    „Soziale Konflikte sind nie einfach nur da, sie werden auch gesellschaftlich hergestellt: entfacht, angeheizt, getriggert.“
    Steffen Mau, Professor für Makrosoziologie an der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin erregte mit seinem Buch Triggerpunkte große Aufmerksamkeit: Von einer „Spaltung der Gesellschaft“ ist immer häufiger die Rede. Bei vielen großen Fragen, so der überraschende Befund der Analyse, herrscht einigermaßen Konsens. Werden jedoch bestimmte Triggerpunkte berührt, verschärft sich schlagartig die Debatte. „Kein Buch konnte in diesem Jahr so überzeugen.“ (SZ)

    in German

    „In einer Zeit vor der Schrift war unser Sternenhimmel ein Kino der Nacht“ (Raoul Schrott). Mit ihrer ungeheuren Einbildungskraft haben die Menschen in den Sternen ihre ältesten Kunstwerke geschaffen und dadurch ihre Kulturen dargestellt. Raoul Schrott präsentiert 17 Sternenhimmel von allen Kontinenten. Unser Großer Wagen war für die Maya ein göttlicher Papagei, für die Inka der einbeinige Gott des Gewitters, für die Inuit ein Elch, für die Araber eine Totenbahre.
