Klassikcast

Our December Klassikcast offers alternatives to Jingle Bells and singing reindeer with songs sung by humans and cellos, with musical families gathered around their piano, with Spanish rhythms that will make you want to dance along. We are celebrating the season with the Lautten Compagney, reflecting on centuries of war and peace, with Andreas Scholl and his family, with cellists Anja Lechner and Maximilian Hornung.

Ivetana at the organ Photo: Daniel Bockwoldt; © picture alliance/Daniel Bockwoldt/dpa With familiar and unfamiliar music, old tunes and new, modern, soft and wild renditions – replete with violins and singing, organ pipes and flute. Modest Moussorgsky's pictures of an exhibition open in unknown guise Sylvia Schreiber’s October Klassikcast, sometimes stormy, sometimes foggy and sometimes colorful – just like autumn.

September 2018

Mahler Illustration: Andreas Armin d'Orfey; @ picture alliance / dieKLEINERT.de Join us this month on a musical journey through 4 centuries full of contrasts, from solo guitar to full symphony orchestra, from young stars to 90 year-old masters. We delve into a modern sound labyrinth and try to understand the genius of the late Mozart symphonies. We explore the supposed sins of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy's youth and daring arrangements of Bruckner's chamber music.

We can experience artists such as Christiane Karg, Matthias Goerne, and Anja Kampe live at the Bayreuth or Salzburg Festivals. In this Klassikcast we also hear what they have to say about it. Let yourself be inspired by both current and past interpretations of vocal music and enjoy a fresh summer wind from German Brass' latest album.
