Symposion: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau - a Centennial Singer in Berlin
Song recitals in the foyer
The cycle of 24 songs for baritone and piano, which Schubert composed shortly before his death, begins with the verses "Fremd bin ich eingezogen / Fremd zieh' ich wieder aus". To this day, this work is one of the most poignant artistic manifestations of outsiderness and loneliness. With its profound combination of folksong-like simplicity and pathos, it contains the entire expressive fullness of Romantic poetry and music.
