During his lifetime, Max Reger, born in 1873, was considered the heir to the German tradition of Johannes Brahms. Today, his late Romantic-influenced song oeuvre is all but forgotten. The evening with Flurina Stucki, Attilio Glaser a. o. contrasts songs by Reger and his rival Richard Strauss as well as music by Philipp Maintz, born in 1977.


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.
