Thursday, 28 December: Classical and Improvisations (Concert) Ulrich Thiem (cello) and Andreas Böttcher (piano) support but also provoke each other on stage. Get ready for a musical journey from Bach to Hindemith, with intermissions including freely improvised music and cello solos. The result is a true musical collage on various acustic levels, so rich that you can expect even the musicians themselves to change places around stage throughout the performance. Thiem is already well known in Dresden’s musical scene, having already performed in many venues including the annual summer festival “Palais Sommer”. Alongside Böttcher, he is known for performances that […]

Thanks to wonderful Dresden Christmas Elves

  The first Christmas invitations for our international researchers were accepted and they, as well as the hosts, shared the first impressions with us. On a snowy Sunday Asif visited the Stamm family in Freital for a real Advent afternoon with the traditional Christmas Stollen. They animatedly talked about life in Germany and Pakistan, Asif’s home country, where the young computer scientist is going to spend the Christmas time with his wife. In the early evening the Stamm family invited their guest to the Christmas market in Burgh, where they had mulled wine and hot punch, before Asif travelled back […]

  Thursday, 14 December: Johanna Summer Trio (Concert) At its roots, jazz was an expression of feelings and emotions as well as a form of popular music. The Johanna Summer Trio attempts to bring back this expression of emotions in music into modern jazz, transforming the old into the new, bringing jazz back to pop music. With a somewhat improvisional style, the band incorporates elements brought from their leader’s origins in classical as well as pop-rock music. All in all, it is rather difficult to label this band as belonging to a specific jazz style, as its songs may rapidly […]

This is the Christmas charming atmosphere […]
