magic flutes -- chats in mozart year

with clemens goldberg [moderation] and scott curry [piano]

mozart's music is everywhere this year -- above all the all-time favourite is heard until it bores although it only makes up a tiny part of mozart's huge oeuvre. zauberflöten. plaudereien im mozartjahr unearths rare mozart pearls and takes us behind the scenes. in a small cast of piano and wonderful voice, the popular radio commentator clemens goldberg presents the known and the unknown, together with their background stories.

the evenings are structured like the main features of mozart's characters and constants in his works: masquerade -- mozart's operas are full of enchanting puzzles in which individual moments of profound truth are suddenly revealed. seduction and devotion -- the feeling for nature meets romance, often there is a hint of a desperate search for acknowledgement in play, poor don giovanni... transcriptiones brillantes -- an evening of rarities with well-known mozart pieces from the viewpoint of other composers. evening mood and nature -- who is not touched by the many sweet airs in the operas? but even here there are naturlieder of mozart to discover. the paths to mozart begin in the late baroque, cembalo and baroque cello sound true to their original style in a baroque palace. and lastly, the metaphysical -- we begin gradually at first, to discern the meanings of freemasonry in mozart's pieces.

the great tesla boules cup

the only type of sport -- according to an oscar wilde bonmot --, which one should take seriously, is playing backgammon on the terrace of a paris café. in this sense tesla invites you to the boules cup that gently ends with electronic music on sunday.
