On the Trail of Thelonious Monk

Little Thelonious looks over his big sister's shoulder at the piano keyboard – the beginning of a career as one of the most famous jazz pianists of all time, a roller-coaster ride with some unforgettable jam sessions, but also one or two low points. The Belgian jazz trio »De Beren Gieren« transports its young audience to New York in the first half of the 20th century with hot music and charming video animations.

»Twinkle Concerts« is the series of children's concerts at the Elbphilharmonie that brings the most successful productions from all over Europe to Hamburg. At times funny and playful, at others thoughtful and reflective, the series introduces children to the world of music in a special and unique way. In addition, the popular Elfi Baby Concerts for expectant mothers and parents with babies up to one year of age continue to take place at the Elbphilharmonie and in many Hamburg districts.
