Seminare

Was genau ist eigentlich Jazz? Welche Geschichten stecken hinter den Werken großer Kompositionen und was macht ihre Besonderheit aus? Jede Saison nehmen Seminare in den Kaistudios Bezug auf das aktuelle Programm in der Elbphilharmonie – Vorkenntnisse bedarf es nicht, ein anschließender Konzertbesuch ist inklusive!

»Czech it out!«

»Who can really do anything since Beethoven?« Franz Schubert wondered. In their individual exploration of Viennese classicism, the three leading Czech composers Smetana, Dvořák and Janáček found their own answers to this question. This course focuses on precisely these three composers, and no prior knowledge is required. The seminar includes a group visit to a concert given by the Pavel Haas Quartet as part of the chamber music festival »Czech it out!«.

Winterreise

Lost in Vienna, 1827: cold weather, solitude, aimless wandering – Schubert’s song cycle »Winterreise« (A Winter’s Journey) is a product of ›inner emigration‹. At the time, Vienna was a police state with a prospering economy; the population was growing, while the suburbs were sinking into poverty. This seminar takes a closer look at the circumstances in which »Winterreise« was written, at the history of its reception and its outstanding importance. No prior knowledge is required. The course fee includes a group visit to the song recital given by Matthias Goerne and Markus Hinterhäuser, where they will perform Schubert’s »Winterreise« as part of the concert series of the same name.

What is Jazz?

What exactly is jazz? What does a jazz musician play, and how does he play it? Hardly any other musical genre has produced so many different forms, and is still in a permanent state of development. In this seminar, Hamburg jazzman Christophe Schweizer explains selected types of jazz up to the present day in easy-to-understand language. If you already have some theoretical knowledge, it’s helpful – but not necessary. The course fee includes a group visit to Nik Bärtsch’s concert on 16 December 2017 and a ticket to a concert of your choice put on by the Hamburg Jazz Federation.
