The Piano Festival Bayreuth is about to start – it is an official part of the event series “Musikzauber Franken” by the broadcaster “Bayerischer Rundfunk”.
Just after the piano duo “grenzgänger” with a recital for 2 pianos from Bizet, Rachmaninoff to the free improvisation has heated up the piano lovers, it becomes casual: jazz “Frühschoppen”, 5 gentlemen – 5 instruments, Benny Goodman and George Gershwin as godparents, “Weisswurst” (white sausage) and “Weissbier” (wheat beer) in the Hoftheater. For the third time the Dixie professionals, the Clarino Jazzband, are guests in the Steingraeber Hoftheater. They are headed by Professor Christoph Wünsch, after all President of the University of Music Würzburg.
Prize winners are once again gue: two more piano duos, a master Chopin player from Switzerland, two French pianists as experts for historical performance practice, two songs, Tristan for piano, and last but not least the Valkyrie Ride, Reinhold Weiser’s one-man show on Uwe Hoppe’s tragicomedy in the Hoftheater (for once, premiering in the Kammermusiksaal as a very intimate matinee, in the middle of the week at the beginning of the festival on 24th July at 11am).
