Musikfest Themes & Highlights 2017


Sichten auf Bach

Sichten auf Bach

Since 2013 the Musikfest has included the concert series »Sichten auf Bach« (Views on Bach) which has since then developed into a firm festival favourite. Internationally renowned interpreters and ensembles rendezvous musically at the highest level and present »their« Bach at lunchtime in the Stiftskirche. This naturally includes a concert by the resident ensembles of the Bachakademie conducted by Akademie Director Hans-Christoph Rademann. Out of this galaxy of Bachian interpretations, everyone can choose his or her own »View of Bach« for themselves...

NachGedacht

At lunchtime on two days in the Musikfest Stuttgart in the Stiftskirche, this format explores the theme of “freedom”. In the style of a meditation, NachGedacht combines a half-hour organ recital (with music exclusively by Johann Sebastian Bach) with a subsequent short lecture by a person from public life. “What does freedom mean for me personally?” and “How do I approach freedom?” are the key questions which the invited speaker will explore in his/her public considerations. Through this interaction with Bach’s organ music, a multi-faceted space for reflection on the theme of the 2017 Musikfest is created.

Klangatelier

Introduced in the Musikfest 2016, the concept of this event under the title “Atelier” consciously indicates the directions of an artistic workshop and exhibition place. Here ideals of sound and the background to these are developed, discussed and presented in performance.

Unternehmen Musik

Unternehmen Musik

Is there such a thing as a unique selling point for Stuttgart and its region? There are many answers to this question. One of these is certainly the unrivalled concentration of medium-sized businesses, all of which are world leaders in their own fields. The Musikfest Stuttgart is responding to this diversity of Swabian inventive genius and entrepreneurship with the innovative format of our “Unternehmen Musik” series: in unusual concert locations – in businesses! – and with specially-chosen programmes, the interaction between hightech and the enjoyment of art creates a festival atmosphere which simply doesn’t exist anywhere else.

BACH.LAB

It is self-evident that only the music of Johann Sebastian Bach can be the centre of gravity for a music festival hosted by the Internationale Bachakademie. But what exactly does that mean? The "world of Bach" demands not only supreme musical performances, but also inspires us to experimentation and crossing borders in our programming. The BACH.LAB is devoted to the creative deconstruction of the day’s musical events in a late evening "Clubschiene" at the Musikfest: Baroque instruments and electronics, jazz music, video projections, the surprising combination of completely different repertoires and genres beyond temporal and practical performing boundaries: everything is possible in the spirit of the great Kantor of St. Thomas’s!
