Prof. Doblhammer-Reiter and the Emanuel Piano Trio

On 28 January 2013, the DZNE hosted the 11th installment of the “Music & Brain” series at Forschungszentrum caesar, Ludwig-Erhard-Allee 2, in 53175 Bonn.

The event began with a talk by Prof. Doblhammer-Reiter, DZNE Rostock/Greifswald and Rostock Center for the Study of Demographic Change, on „Dementia and Care: What does this mean for an aging population?". The Lecture was followed by a performance of the internationally renowned Emanuel Piano Trio who played works by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Prof. Doblhammer-Reiter is director of the Dementia register at DZNE and Co-director of the Rostock Center for the Study of Demographic Change. Furthermore she is professor of Social Research at the University of Rostock. Her main research areas are: determinants of longevity; social inequality and life expectancy; quality of life, care and care in an aging society; early life circumstances and longevity; reproduction and longevity; social inequalities in morbidity and mortality and health care system in demographic change. 

The members of the Emanuel Piano Trio are pianist Anthony Spiri, violinist Ariadne Daskalakis and cellist Sebastian Hess. They represent diverse musical backgrounds and are each renowned as soloists and chamber musicians. The Trio’s first pivotal project is the rediscovering of eleven surviving piano trios of Carl Philip Emanuel Bach, not yet embraced in the repertoire of modern instruments. Meanwhile, the Emanuel Piano Trio’s repertoire has quickly expanded to include later works, from Mozart to Schumann, Mendelssohn and Fauré. Furthermore, the members have enjoyed close collaboration with prominent contemporary composers like Bischof, Gubaidulina, Henze, Reade Thomas, Rihm and Widmann. The Emanuel Piano Trio co-founded the International Chamber Music Week at Palazzo Ricci in Montepulciano in 2012.
