ABOUT YELLOW LOUNGE
The Yellow Lounge was introduced in 2000 and has since spread with success to cities like Berlin, Vienna, Stockholm and Salzburg. The idea from the start was to tear classical music out of the concert halls and into completely different, exciting and innovative environments, where it could meet new audiences and be presented in new surroundings. Many star entertainers have been involved in the concept. Anne Sophie von Otter and Elvis Costello have visited Yellow Lounge in Berlin, where also Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys has appeared as guest DJ. Latest, Sting has introduced “Songs from the Labyrinth”, a CD made for Deutsche Grammophon, at the Yellow Lounge in Berlin. At Avenue Hotel there will be two DJs who will throw themselves into the special Yellow Lounge genre:
Stephan has a university degree in musicology and has worked as a DJ for the past 10 years. In the area of classical music he has among other things been a resident DJ for the alternative classical institutions “Classy Mondays” (Copenhagen) and “ Reload Classics” (Aarhus) and he has also created classical DJ sets for the National Art Gallery, Charlottenborg, the Wundergrund Festival and the Holy Trinity Night Church. Stephan also functions as a musical consultant for theatre performances and has a long history of productions with Katrine Wiedemann as director – including Reumert Prize winners such as “Havfruen (The Mermaid)”, “Faust” and “Drømmespil (Dream Games”). Musically he tries hard to make classical music relevant to a modern audience – amongst other things by displaying its rich melodiousness and strong emotions, which along the way are mixed together with electronic ambient or acoustic jazz into a journey of discovery with picture creating moods.
