Jan Müller-Wieland and Johannes X. Schachtner at Kempfenhausen Castle on Lake Starnberg

The enchanted atmosphere of a concert at Kempfenhausen Castle on Lake Starnberg is evoked by “the crackle-like surface of Manuela Hartel's photo collage, reminiscent of the patina of an oil painting”, writes the organiser. "The musical and visual performative design this year was created by composer and conductor Johannes X. Schachtner and video artist Manuela Hartel. “Starting from the song cycle “Neues Leipziger Liederbuch”, dramaturgical threads are spun for a fairytale-like, sensual and pleasantly whimsical experience. Likewise through the “Lullaby” by Jan Müller-Wieland with the piano trio. The pendulum motif from Brahms’s “Guten Abend, gute Nacht” is the starting point for a highly poetic instrumental work that fascinates between ecstasy, meditation and expansive fading away.”
