In this edition: the musical mix of Eberhard Schoener, high-tech clothes, Sue Austin and her underwater wheelchair spectacle, the ‘Unknown’ show of renowned photographer Peter Lindbergh, the Beethoven Fest in Bonn, following Pablo Picasso’s trail in southern Spain, and the 2012 Beethovenfest.
Eberhard Schoener is one of Germany's most experimental composers and conductors. Since the 70's he has been known for mixing classical music with pop and rock songs. We caught up with him at the Tegernsee Music Festival in Bavaria.
We’re at the IFA consumer electronics fair where we check out how fashion is going high-tech by incorporating electronics into clothing. We meet Austrian designer Wolfgang Langeder of the company ‘utope’ and look at some of his creations.
Underwater Wheelchair Acrobatics
Britain’s Sue Austin performs amazing feats underwater in her wheelchair in a show she calls “Creating the Spectacle”. The physically-challenged athlete’s performance is part of the cultural events during the 2012 Paralympics in London. Austin calls her show ‘live art’.
Photographer Peter Lindbergh’s ‘Unknown’
The German photographer shows his special ‘Unknown’ collection which combines fashion with science-fiction-like elements. He also talks to us about his ‘secret side’.
The annual celebration of the famous German composer’s works in Bonn is led this time by Andris Nelsons, conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
We visit the main cities in southern France which Pablo Picasso either visited or lived in. Included are: Ménerbes, Antibes and Vallauris,
