Special Musical Highlight Julia Gloor's Ensemble Element with Volkstoenen
Glockenruf: Small bells will be played that resemble goats and cowbells, concluded by musicians playing clarinets.
Das Labyrinth: Stephanie Szanto (Alt) and Andreas Frueh (Tenor) will play a wonderful duet, accompanied by singers sitting on milking stools that represent Switzerland.
Keynote I: An Integrated Approach to Risk Management
Flavia SCHLEGEL, Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences, United Nations Educational, Scientific amd Cultural Organization UNESCO, Paris, France
Music by Ensemble Element
Kranz der Helvetia: The heroic picture of Helvetia will be humorously presented along with a poem read through a milk funnel. A solo part (Alt and Soprano) will be elegantly played, followed by the clarinet and a surprising conclusion.
OGottogott: Have you ever wondered what the first travels on a postbus through the Alps were like? Rhythmic and bumpy? Maybe it was like an untuned horn? Close your eyes and feel the history with this wonderful music.
Interview with Andreas Frueh, tenor
Keynote II: Making Peace is a Marathon
May EL KHALIL, Founder and President of the Beirut International Marathon, Beirut, Lebanon
Music by Ensemble Element
Heimat - World Premiere:
The traditional instruments form the solid base of familiarity and stability, whereas the singing represents transition, evanescence and associated insecurities. The interesting composition with a tenor solo, speaker, Hackbrett (traditional percussion instrument) and a milk funnel indicate an unusual sound experience.
Stets i Truure: The ensemble will positively and powerfully conclude with a newly arranged, traditional folk song by Julia Gloor.
