re:start: From Brahms to Nina Simone

Free Admission

The intimate sound of a soul voice, free-flowing jazz chords and the complex harmonies of Brahms' compositions - at first, these styles don't seem to have much in common. What connects them in each case? They get under your skin. The artists in the Festivalcampus-Ensemble have a special passion for this universal power of music. This also applies to the French-British violist Nina Tonji, who writes, sings and produces her own R'n'B songs alongside her classical music activities. In her concert format, she wants to get to the bottom of what makes pieces of music so effective with a string ensemble. What touches us and how can it be explained?

The young music theorist, pianist and former Classic Scout at the Heidelberger Frühling, Ruven Wegner, will be on hand to reveal one or two secrets with his analytical insights.
