Festsaal

Mariel Kreis in conversation with the artists at 7.15 pm (in german)

Whether he can move mountains remains to be seen, but houses, he certainly can. The man in question is Fazil Say. In autumn 2017, this "extreme musician" (according to Die Welt) played here for the first time in a sold-out Festsaal. And the virtuoso, globally-reputed composer, pianist and improviser obviously enjoyed the experience so much that he was happy to clear a space in his calendar for us once again. This time he is coming with the Casal Quartet and together they will play probably the most romantic piano quintet (by Schumann) of all time, plus one of Say’s latest compositions. The latter is also a piano quintet and is called "The House That Was Moved". This house is, as you would expect of him, full to the brim with jazzy rhythms and bursting with energy. Enough to move mountains, perhaps.

Who will come along?
