5 classical, 5 pop, 3 jazz concerts and a double of classical-pop music
Grand old men of jazz such as the saxophonist and flautist Charles Lloyd and his “Kindred Spirits” will open the “Elbphilharmonie Summer” on August 7, 2019. The quintet features the exciting and markedly different guitarists Julian Lage und Martin Sewell. No fewer than ten Hamburg choirs, three soloists and the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Berlioz’s “Te deum” and “Die erste Walpurgisnacht” by Mendelssohn and conducted by Kent Nagano on three consecutive evenings (August 24-26, 2019) making for special musical highlights. Tickets for the concerts will be available from June 20, 2019.
Film concerts in Grand Hall
Two very different performances of film scores will likely enrapture concertgoers in the Grand Hall. Mexican drummer Antonio Sánchez will accompany the cult film “Birdman”, directed by fellow Mexican Alejandro G. Iñárritu, in a live, improvised drum solo on August 9, 2019. A film evening on August 10, 2019 entitled “The Sweetheart & The Daredevil” features two U.S. silent movies from 1920 for which two musicians with the Brussels Jazz Orchestra have composed new music. The comedian Harold Lloyd was by no means inferior to his contemporaries Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Lloyd’s daring stunts earned him the nickname “King of Daredevil Comedy”.
