The State of Modern Classical Music

For the fourth time we are focussing on the exchange between “pop” and “classical” at our Modern Classic strand. Now, more than ever, genres are dissolving, artists leave their traditional framing and new challenges, but also lots of synergies emerge.

In cooperation with important companies in the field of modern classical music, including Bosworth Music, Bureau Export, Deutsche Grammophon, Neue Meister and ProArte, we have prepared a package of showcases like Yellow Lounge - Tribute to Jóhann Jóhannsson (Deutsche Grammophon, Yellow Lounge, DE), Neue Meister - Labelnight (Neue Meister, DE), and The State of Modern Classical Music (Bosworth Music, Peermusic, DE), receptions, and sessions that present a wide range of today’s classical music.

With speakers such as Ólafur Arnalds (Artist, IS), Till Janczukowicz (Founder, Idagio, DE), and Elina Hage (Owner, Artifier Management, DE) we will address topics relevant to the genre, including managing artists in a post-genre world, presenting classical music on digital platforms, creating content beyond audio, and applying for music project funding.


Create Content Beyond Audio

As announced last week renown artist and BAFTA award winner Ólafur Arnalds (IS) presents the world premiere "Ekki Hugsa 360°" specifically produced for Reeperbahn Festival 2019 at the Planetarium Hamburg together with his video producer Torsten Posselt (Design Director, FELD, DE, photo). Moreover, both will talk about the creation of the audiovisual experience with host Mischa Kreiskott (NDR Kultur, ARD-ZDF Medienakademie, DE) in the panel Transformations: Create Content Beyond Audio – Developing The Audio Album Re:Member To The Audiovisual Experience Ekki Hugsa 360°.


The Round Must Go Into The Square

"The Four Seasons" or "les quatres saisons"? Mahler or rather Beethoven? No idea of classical music but looking for recommendations? A classical music specialist but you can't find what you're looking for under the common name?

From the challenges of presenting classical music on digital platforms to successful models who accept this challenge. Join this panel with Yannick Fage (Editor, Deezer, FR, photo), Till Janczukowicz (Founder, Idagio, DE), and Sylvain Morton (Director of Distribution, Idol, FR). 


Reeperbahn Festival as Lead Partner for  Keychange 2.0

The overwhelming success of the Keychange Initiative on gender equality in the music business, for the first time presented at the 2017 Reeperbahn Festival, will enter the next phase in September with the soul star Joy Denalane as new ambassadress for Germany.

Furnished with 1.4 million euros by the EU Commission until 2023, Keychange will extend its goal for a balanced gender ratio, in terms of content as well as space, from the live entertainment to neighbouring fields of the music business. Details on the Keychange 2.0 measures will be introduced on 19 September at 11.00 p.m. The event is open for all media representatives, artists and professional visitors.
