19:00 - Music

Gold & Pagels - Soul, Pop, Jazz Duo


​The Patrick Pagels Swing Ensemble plays the best and worst pop songs by Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, The Beatles, Wham, Stevie Wonder, Adele, Marianne Rosenberg, Eurhythmics, ABBA and many more in the swinging garb of gypsy jazz. 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 - Music

The Kirbardin-Quartett - 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.
