Guests: Duo L’Oro
Babett Niclas, harp & Friederike Merkel, recorders

Shortly after the beginning of the war, the Music Academy provided its guesthouse to Ukrainian musicians and their families who fled from their home country. Since then, a small ensemble has been established in the castle, regularly rehearsing and working together.
Natalie Papazoglu sings Ethno, Soul and Jazz Standards. She is very well-known in Ukraine and has won numerous Song Contests. Tatiana Yuriyevna has her own school for Jazz singing, and in addition to Jazz will also sing Ukrainian folk songs. The small ensemble was joined by two highly talented young Ukrainian guitarists who aim to study in Germany.

Two colours – Два кольори – is a very popular song in Ukraine. Apart from Ukrainian songs, there will also be Jazz, Ethno and Soul as well as some Spanish guitar music.

Duo L’Oro with harpist Babett Niclas and recorder player, Friederike Merkel, were our guests as recipients of the artist-in-residence scholarship and now return to play live on stage. They will play some of the programme shown in their concert film, and also perform music together with the Ukrainian musicians.
The newly built music pavilion designed by bergmeisterwolf of Brixen will safeguard good acoustics in the castle’s Baroque Garden.

Ratze-Fatze-Rüdiger

A musical story for children and of course also for grown-ups

Dragged here by Eduard Resatsch (music) and Andreas Ulich (text)
more

Trio Colorit
Nadine Resatsch, solo cor anglais/Konzerthausorchester Berlin: oboe
Eduard Resatsch, cellist/Bamberger Symphoniker: cello & composition
Andreas Ulich, actor/author: narrator & story

Recommended for children from pre-school age onward and also for grown-ups 🙂

A Small Rat with a Cheeky Difference

Classical music, played live by oboe and cello, combined with an excitingly told story about courage and friendship. Children can find out what it’s like to be courageous, not to give up and to be able to rely on one’s friends.

Rüdiger, the little rat who plays the oboe, has finally found a nice cave to live in. But this is right in the middle of a concert hall, underneath the conductor’s podium. Rüdiger can only stay there and also play along in the orchestra, if he can prove himself as a musician – together with many very big people. He plays the oboe very well, but will he find the courage needed for a musical competition with the orchestra’s master cellist?

Concert: 16 Euro, 8 Euro (red.)

Kreisler's Poetic Music Salon

E.T.A. Hoffmann Festival

Alon Sariel, historical mandolin · Javier Aguilar Bruno, violine · Francesca Venturi Ferriolo, viola · Verena Spies, cello · Andreas Ulich, actor
more

With E.T.A. Hoffmann from the Classic to the Romantic Period

“How music is something most wondrous. How little can human beings fathom its deep secrets.” And yet this is exactly what the chamber ensemble gathered around mandolinist, Alon Sariel, and actor, Andreas Ulich, strive to do during this Romantic soirée, Salon music of a very special kind. With works by Ludwig van Beethoven, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, W.A. Mozart and others.
Israeli musician, Alon Sariel, plays an instrument which is rather seldomly heard on the concert stage: he became a specialist for historic mandolin, and tours the world very successfully with it. He is accompanied by Viacheslav Shelepov, a fortepiano specialist, who will be playing on two different original fortepianos from the times of E.T.A. Hoffmanns which are in the collection of the Schloss Weißenbrunn Foundation.

Concert: 28 Euro, 18 Euro (red.)

Bernhard Romberg & Ferdinand Ries »On Tour«

Artist-in-residence Concert

Artem Belogurov, Fortepiano Brodmann · Victor Garcia, Violoncello
more

Romantic music for violoncello and piano

The focus of this programme presented by these two young, highly talented musicians will be on music by Ferdinand Ries and Bernhard Romberg. Romberg, presumably the most prominent central European cellist of his times, had a close working and personal friendship with Beethoven pupil and composer, Ferdinand Ries. The concert title was inspired by a concert tour these two composers made through Russia, Moldavia, Ukraine, Romania and Estonia. In addition to works written especially for this tour, the focus of the programme is also on improvisation – an art practiced both by the composers and today’s artists – live in the castle’s Music Salon and in a concert film.

Concert: 28 Euro, 18 Euro (red.)

Romantic Music for Piano Trio

Artist-in-residence Concert

Trio Radiant
more

Judith von der Goltz, violine · Sylvia Demgenski, violoncello · Juin Lee, fortepiano

The historical fortepiano of 1827, built in Vienna by Josef Brodmann, is the central focus of this year’s Artist-in-Residence Programme organised by the Schloss Weißenbrunn Music Academy. Trio Radiant who among numerous competitors managed to convince the jury with their love to detail and their musicality, will play works by Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, by Clara and Robert Schumann, by Emilie Mayer and Johannes Brahms.

They juxtapose – on an equal footing – works of the famous male composers and the rather forgotten works by the female composers who were related to these men. They weave them together, framing them with short excerpts from letters, poems and anecdotes which make the lives and works of these historical persons come alive again.

The central focus is a merged version of two piano trios by Felix Mendelssohn and Fanny Hensel. They are intended to grow into one, forming a symbiosis, just as Fanny and Felix maintained a symbiotic relationship throughout their lives. Creating a kind of F-A-E sonata by these two siblings.
Around this there is a group comprising the loving Schumann couple (with a Romance and a Fantasy) and the two loners, Johannes Brahms and Emilie Mayer (with an Intermezzo and a movement from her piano trio op. 16).
