Gudrun Landgrebe, recitation, Klenke Quartet, string quartet "The Shells of Monsieur Charbre"
Let's treat ourselves to a fictional journey to a wild and romantic French countryside at the end of the 19th century: Estelle, a 22-year-old beauty with a "supple waist", is trapped in a dreary marriage to the retired corn merchant Chabre, twice her age, whose face is at least impressive in that it is "as flat and ordinary as a sidewalk"....
With her versatility and range, Gudrun Landgrebe feels just as much at home on the theater stage as she does in television studios or on the big screen. The award-winning film "Die flambierte Frau" made Gudrun Landgrebe a star overnight in 1983. Further leading roles with international directors, István Szabó "Colonel Redl", Edouard Molinaro "Palace" cemented her reputation. Gudrun Landgrebe has also appeared in numerous German film productions and plays in the leading or title role. She gives readings with great enthusiasm and lends her voice to numerous audio books.
For 30 years, the Klenke Quartet has enriched international concert life with an unchanged line-up. Annegret Klenke (1st violin), Beate Hartmann (2nd violin), Yvonne Uhlemann (viola) and Ruth Kaltenhäuser (cello) have established themselves as one of the most important German string quartets and are considered "one of the most distinguished European formations" (Gewandhaus-Magazin). Profundity, songfulness, intimate music-making coupled with a strong program dramaturgy and a sound intensity down to the quietest note characterize the Klenke Quartet. Collaboration with colleagues is an important source of inspiration for the ensemble. The Klenke Quartet has performed with Matthias Kirschnereit and the Auryn and Vogler Quartets, among others.
