After Jeanette Winterson, I am in a kind of loop reading only her right now, so Iris Murdoch is kind of a hard one, but I love her, too, so off we go!

When Charles Arrowby, over sixty, a demi-god of the theatre, retires from his glittering London world in order to ‘abjure magic and become a hermit’, it is to the sea that he turns. He hopes at least to escape from ‘the women’ – but unexpectedly meets one whom he loved long ago.

Dear DBG Dresden Members & Friends,

Our infrequently held Pub Quizzes on various topics have quickly become very popular with members and non-members alike.

Thus, for our April Open Meeting we are very pleased to invite you to a Pub Quiz on British Music – organized in co-operation with the Dresdner Musikfestspiele whose 2013 motto is “Empire” (www.musikfestspiele.com).

So come along, bring your friends and test your knowledge about Elgar and Britten and learn something new about the Beatles or Robbie Williams!
Questions will test your hearing/music recognition abilities and will range from the funny to the trivial, requiring some serious knowledge in between.

Do you sometimes wonder why you haven’t come across a certain author in those xxx years of your life?
How it is possibly possible?
Jeanette Winterson is such an author for me. This book is witty, heartbreaking, intelligent and utterly engaging.

OARAÏ TYPHOON

Created in 2011, the side-project Oaraï Typhoon is the encounter of two independent music lovers who enjoy unplugging the electric guitars of their punk-rock bands. It’s a spontaneous friendship, an unpretentious journey with no definite destination. After a couple months spent wandering on un-beaten tracks, Oaraï Typhoon records its first demo and starts appearing in various venues of the Loire Valley. One year later, they record their first EP “A Little Like Eclipses” in an attic and are now more than ready to share it with the rest of the world. Oaraï Typhoon is for the roving minds, for those who are on the lookout for something, those who like to take an unexpected turn to understand or just to escape… Under the rain.

NO KING. NO CROWN.

Kein König, keine Krone und doch eine Majestät: René adelt das Gefühl. Das Zepter übernehmen Stimme und Gitarre. Dem Zuhörer gewährt er eine Audienz bei sich selbst: dort, wo farbenfrohe Melodien die Gedanken hofieren und in den Herzen einen Thron besteigen.

Was es dabei zu hören und zu erleben gibt, ist akustische Gitarren-Musik in verschiedendsten Facetten. Von nachdenklich bis verzweifelt, von kraftgebend bis erschöpfend, von herzerwärmend bis schockierend. Und dabei ist es zu jedem Zeitpunkt vor allem zweierlei: ehrlich und sympathisch.
