the content

Sergei Rachmaninoff, Richard Strauss and Charles Ives were contemporaries, but both their lives and their musical languages are conceivably different. Maria Motolygina, Kieran Carrel and Thomas Lehman sing.


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.
