The Yiddish Cabaret

»Our grandparents spoke Yiddish behind closed doors, and Yiddish music is rooted in the memories of our childhood« says Ori Kam, violist of the Jerusalem Quartet. The musicians also want to present Jewish humor: Broadway and varieté would be unthinkable without the influence of (emigrated) Jewish artists, their mixture of wordplay and irony, profundity and lightness. Leonid Desyatnikov’s songs revive this tradition and take us back in time: to Yiddish life in Warsaw in 1920.

Pergolesi: Stabat Mater

This cry for help softens the hardest heart. In Pergolesi’s »Stabat Mater«, two bright voices ask for Mary’s succor, her maternal consolation, which she gave to Jesus on the cross. Pergolesi found tender music for the medieval poem in 1736 and dressed it in understated operatic style. Baroque pomp? Passé! The Italian enchanted his audience with the new elegance – the magic lasts until today.

Benefizkonzert des Heidelberger Frühling

Dieser ganz besondere Benefizabend mitten im 25. Jubiläumsjahr des Heidelberger Frühling leuchtet im barocken Festmusikglanz – denn es wird royal! Die berühmtesten Komponisten des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts standen in den Diensten kunstsinniger Potentaten und hatten dank finanzieller Unterstützung von Königen und Kaisern die Möglichkeit, prächtige Werke für allerlei repräsentative Anlässe zu verfassen. Besonders prunkvolle Werke erklangen freilich zu den Krönungsfeierlichkeiten, allen voran im Rahmen der dazugehörigen Liturgie. Die bekanntesten Krönungskompositionen sind unbestritten Georg Friedrich Händels „Coronation Anthems“, die seit fast 300 Jahren bei der Einsetzung des britischen Monarchen in Westminster Abbey erklingen. Aber auch Georg Muffat und Antonio Caldara steuerten solemne Musik für diese ausufernden Feierlichkeiten bei.

Anne Schwanewilms

Anne Schwanewilms is recognised as one of the leading interpreters of the works of Richard Strauss. Her extensive repertoire covers roles such as Arabella, Ariadne („Ariadne auf Naxos“), Chrysothemis („Elektra“), Feldmarschallin („Der Rosenkavalier“), Empress („Die Frau ohne Schatten, Danae („Die Liebe der Danae“), Elsa („Lohengrin“), Elisabeth („Tannhäuser“), Desdemona („Otello“), Marie („Wozzeck“) and Madame Lidoine („Dialogues des Carmélites“). She has appeared at many of the major opera houses of the world including Munich, Dresden, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Amsterdam, Vienna, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, New York and Tokyo. At the Semperoper Dresden, Anne Schwanewilms enjoyed a great success as Arabella and Chrysothemis under the musical direction of Christian Thielemann, roles which she reprised at the Vienna National Opera under the baton of Ulf Schirmer and Franz Welser-Möst. Anne Schwanewilms is a regular at the Bayreuth and the Salzburg Festivals, where her performances as Carlotta in „Die Gezeichneten“ by Franz Schreker and as the Empress in Richard Strauss’ „Die Frau ohne Schatten“ were particularly significant. Engagements in 2017 included Marschallin („Der Rosenkavalier“) in Munich, Elisabeth („Tannhäuser“) at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin and Eva in the new production of „Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg“ at the Bayreuth Festival in 2017.

Anne Schwanewilms appears regularly with conductors such as Christian Thielemann, Zubin Metha, Sir Simon Rattle, Daniel Barenboim, Franz Welser-Möst, Kent Nagano, Stefan Soltesz, Vladimir Jurowski, Christoph von Dohnanyi, Simone Young, Christoph Eschenbach and Riccardo Chailly. Her prolific concert career takes her to the foremost halls of Europe and she appears regularly with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchestre National de France.

One of the leading exponents of Lied, Anne Schwanewilms has appeared in recital at the Wigmore Hall London, at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, at the Lincoln Center New York and at the Edinburgh Festival. She is a member of the jury of the international Louis Spohr-Competition and leads masterclasses. A British music critic described her as a ‘veritable sound painter’. Accompanied by Malcolm Martineau, Charles Spencer and Roger Vignoles, Anne Schwanewilms has set artistic standards with her interpretations of songs by Schumann, Wolff, Wagner, Liszt, Mahler, Strauss and Schönberg. Music critics praise her unfailing sense of the subtlest details of phrasing, lustre and suppleness of voice and great technical expertise. „Recitals are my staging“, Anne Schwanewilms said once in an interview. „Here I can create something from the beginning with very simple means – the voice and the piano.“

Anne Schwanewilms has a comprehensive discography. Her opera recordings include DVDs of „Die Gezeichneten“ (Salzburg Festival, Kent Nagano, DSO, 2005), „Die Frau ohne Schatten“ (Salzburg Festival, Christian Thielemenn, Vienna Philharmonic), „Der Rosenkavalier“ (Fabio Luisi, Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden, 2007) and „Dialogues des Carmélites“ (Simone Young, Hamburg State Opera, 2008). In addition, she has presented a Richard Strauss CD („Vier letzte Lieder“ and excerpts from „Der Rosenkavalier“, „Capriccio“ and „Arabella“, Markus Stenz, Cologne Gürzenich Orchestra), a Richard Wagner CD with „Tristan and Isolde“, „Tannhäuser“ and the „Wesendonck-Lieder“ (Cornelius Meister, RSO Vienna) as well as several recital discs including works by Liszt, Mahler, Schumann, Wolff, and Schönberg. In May 2016 her CD „Schöne Welt…“ with Lieder by Schubert, Schreker and Korngold has been released.

A recipient of many awards, in 2015 she received a GRAMMY Award nomination for her CD recording of Richard Strauss’ „Elektra“ with Christian Thielemann. Her recording of „Wozzeck“ with Hans Graf and Houston Symphony Orchestra received the ECHO Klassik Award 2017 and a GRAMMY Award nomination.
