Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This double program with singer Christine Schafer offers classical music in a new visual context. In Diechterliebe, the boundaries between song and recital and reality blur. The chosen setting - a night club in the center of Berlin - creates the intimate, dark salon atmosphere in which the songs might have been performed at the time they were written. For Schonberg's "Pierrot Lunaire", the setting is a surreal, at times grotesque dream world set in a modern city.
