Hauskonzert - Igor Levit, Florian Zinnecker - Buchvorstellung

04.08.2021, 13:00 bis 14:00

Igor Levit begeistert in der Elbphilharmonie wie auf Twitter. Das erste Buch „eines der wichtigsten Künstler seiner Generation … der Pianist des Widerstands.“ New York Times

Igor Levit gehört zu den besten Pianisten seiner Generation. Doch sein Wirken geht weit über die Musik hinaus: Er erhebt seine Stimme gegen Rassismus, Antisemitismus und jede Art von Menschenhass. Er engagiert sich für den Klimaschutz und tritt für die Demokratie ein. Was treibt ihn an? Woher rührt seine Energie? Der Journalist Florian Zinnecker begleitet Igor Levit durch die Konzertsaison 2019/20. Gemeinsam erleben sie eine Zeit der Extreme. Es ist das Jahr, in dem Levit öffentlich Partei gegen Hass im Netz ergreift und dafür Morddrohungen erhält. Das Jahr, in dem er für Hunderttausende Hauskonzerte auf Twitter spielt. Und das Jahr, in dem er zu sich selbst findet – als Künstler und als Mensch.


Richard Wagner: "A Pilgrimage to Beethoven"

CD presentation with musical accompaniment – Frank Piontek and Wolfram Graf


Marie-Luise and Victor Alcántara - Songs without Words - Pianistic sound poetry in Classic and Jazz

06.08.2021, 19:30

The concert programme sheds light on the genre of songlike solo piano pieces founded by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847), which capture the vocal and poetic moment of playing the piano in musical miniatures.  Marie-Luise Alcántara devotes herself to classical piano compositions and juxtaposes works by Mendelssohn with those of selected contemporaries.  Through pieces by Darius Milhaud (1892-1974) and Gabriel Faurés (1845-1924) it builds a bridge to the 20th century, to which Victor Alcántara devotes himself from a jazz perspective. He improvises on pieces of the jazz piano tradition such as Horace Silvers (1928-2014) “Song for My Father” or Fred Hersch’s (*1955) “Heartsong”.

Silent movie and live piano: Christoph Wünsch

07.10.2021, 19:30

Charley Chase:  LIMOUSINE LOVE

(USA 1928, Director: Fred L. Guiol, Production: Hal Roach, approx. 23 min.)

Charley Chase: DOG SHY

(USA 1926, Director: Leo McCarey, Production: Hal Roach, approx. 25 min.)

Charley Chase was not a simple slapstick comedian, but rather coined a form of situation comedy in which he usually appears as a shy, nervous everyman or as a youthful daredevil. In his day, Chase was very popular and also successful at the box office. His two-act plays, which he did in the mid-twenties, very effectively butcher stories in which Chase gets into embarrassing and increasingly convoluted situations.

LIMOUSINE LOVE, for instance, is also stunningly funny: Chase, driving to his own wedding, must suddenly discover that there is a naked, perfect stranger in the back seat of his car …

In DOG SHY he plays a young man who has had a panic fear of dogs since childhood. Once again “on the run”, he ends up in a phone box where a woman’s crying sounds from the receiver. When she tells him that she is to be married to a stranger, he wants to save her, arrives by chance at her home as a butler and causes a series of confusions and comical situations …

The Music

for LIMOUSINE LOVE was commissioned by the Bielefeld Silent Film Festival for piano and computer-controlled piano sounds, the music for DOG SHY was commissioned by the Würzburg International Film Weekend for salon orchestra and later adapted for piano and computer-controlled piano sounds. The computer makes it possible to combine characteristics of the two instruments that were originally used to provide musical accompaniment to silent films: piano and cinema organ. From the piano come the timbres (partly processed with sampling technology), from the cinema organ the principle of reproducing several timbres and musical levels simultaneously. The live piano is accompanied, so to speak, by an oversized mechanical piano …
