Rummsfeld, Anna Clementi, Jueri Gagarino
At the beginning of the opening gala, musicians from Hannover will be onstage to set-off fireworks of percussion art to start the festival. Even confetti canons are to be used as instruments!
In addition to classics such as John Cage and current pieces by Andy Akiho or Casey Cangelosi,
a world premiere is commissioned: whizz kid and Paul Hindemith Prize winner Stefan Johannes Hanke is composing a new percussion quintet especially for the Überschlag Festival. The Hanoverian composer Thorsten Encke can also be heard in the program with a new piece.
Directly after the concert, Jueri Gagarino (European Music Project, Yellow Lounge, WDR Klassik Klub) and Anna Clementi will transform the foyer into a lounge atmosphere — the finest live music paired with electronic sounds. The Überschlag invites you to dance and celebrate the start of this festival with us.
