The swingtet (Llilian Gold and Bianca von Bötticher, vocals; Patrick Pagels, guitar; Heikos Quistorf, accordion; Axel Burkhardt double bass) forms a bridge between European gypsy swing and American jazz and, more recently, pop. Timeless, lively, emotional. Whether fast or slow, the music of Patrick Pagels Swing Ensemble is always spirited, passionate, swinging and never obtrusive. The band is literally bubbling over with inspiring ideas and greedy grooves, while being both, authentic and undoubtedly swinging. The band's sound is acoustic, warm and definitely not just a must for jazz lovers.

 

​​​20:30  The Kibardin Quartet - Tango - Mediterranean temperament meets Nordic sounds

​For this occasion the Kibardin Quartet will play -among others- Jens-Uwe Popp's “Waltz of the White Nights”, a homage to the bright summers of Scandinavia.
The four outstanding musicians immerse themselves in the tango world of the bayan virtuoso and composer Efim Jourist. He created astounding, expressive works, carried by sumptuous, melancholic melodies. He enriched the tango with gypsy jazz, classical music and a whole range of other dance influences. Michael Kibardin (violin), Alexander Pankow (bajan), Jens-Uwe Popp (guitar) and Guido Jäger (double bass) worked for many years with Efim Jourist, who died in 2007.

19:00  The Pop Swings – Pop goes Gypsy-Jazz

​Coincidence brought singer-songwriter Lilian Gold together with guitarist Patrick Pagels, but one thing was immediately crystal clear – this constellation fits! Two creative minds in music who think and perform alike have found each other. Giving their favorite soul and jazz pieces a new look, they always express their creativity through their very own and personal touch and dare to transform well known cultural assets, such as Rilke's texts to music. Whatever they touch, they turn into gold and let it shine on stage. The worlds of sounds Patrick creates live and spontaneous with his guitar are the fertile ground for Lilian's inexhaustible creative ideas to sprout.

17:30  Vorlesemanufaktur - Counterattack

»Because without humans, the animals agreed, life on earth would be much more pleasant and, above all, safer«.

The actors Maureen Havlena and Alexander Kruuse Mettin, co-founders of the Vorlesemanufaktur, read from Nadja Niemeyer's book »Counterattack«. A pamphlet against human hubris and a plea for diversity in nature.

17:30  Kathrin Weisser - Chiaroscuro

Chiaroscuro is a painting technique developed in the late Renaissance that is characterized by the strong contrast of light and dark. The German born actress Kathrin Weisser, who lives and performs in Copenhagen, transfers these contrasts to literature.

19:00  Benny Brown Trio

The three full blood musicians Benny Brown (trumpet, flugelhorn), Wolf Kerschek (piano), and Felix Behrendt (bass) present new compositions and selected standards - this time as a trio. A constant alternation between composition and improvisation takes the audience into a particularly personal, detailed world of sound ranging from catchy melodies to loud explosions.

20:30  Julie Lind Quartet

Listening to their music is a bit like discovering the city before 9am on a peaceful Sunday morning: no one has appointments, the city is either not yet fallen asleep or just woken up A program with echoes of world stars like Billie Holiday and Norah Jones.

The Julie Lind Quartet (Julie Lind vocals; Asbjørn Kamban Larsen, trumpet; David Rønne Vang, Mads Nørgaard, bass and guitar) is a band that boldly mixes an old-fashioned romantic jazz universe with modern effects. Julie's singing is smooth and charming. The lyrics are direct and cozy but also subtle with their underlying humor and melancholy.

An evening full of emotions and artistic compositions which tell us stories about the ups and downs of life and about love: Anri Coza, the woman behind the piano and with the silver surfer curls, is no stranger to Hamburg stages. Since her appearance at The Voice of Germany in 2019 it is a rare opportunity to experience the South African-born artist perform in such a unique and intimate setting.

Anri decided to declutter the music and go back to the roots of her songs - songs which are always "born" at the piano. In order to give the songs an additional facet, she is accompanied on stage by the multi-instrumentalist Anne de Wolff.


20:30  Nordic Warrior Woman

The Amazons have been a topic of discussion for thousands of years. Who were they and why are they called Amazons? What is the difference between an amazon and a warrior woman? Recent archaeological excavations are uncovering increasing evidence of female warriors everywhere, including in the Nordic countries.

In a stage performance, Tina Robinson and Marianne Petersen bring us closer to the warrior women of the north and playfully uncover the truth, conveying facts and origins.
