the content

No composer of the Romantic period could avoid writing songs, not even Richard Wagner and his admirers. Even if the master himself used the genre only sporadically, composers in his circle made interesting contributions to the art form. Alexandra Hutton, Matthew Newlin, Dean Murphy sing, recitation by and with Daniel Bayerstorfer.

Classical art songs and modern poetry – lieder recital meets poetry reading in this series of events organised jointly with the Haus für Poesie Berlin. Each of the four evening events held in the foyer of the Deutsche Oper Berlin will feature a poet reading original works whose themes complement the songs on the programme.
