Silent Songs into the Wild – A Franz Schubert Concert Staged in the Here and NOW

A new version, casted just for Hitzacker – the renowned Lied cycles like “Die Winterreise”, “Die schöne Müllerin” or “Schwanengesang” were originally intended for a dance performance at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels, which was devastated by fire at the beginning of the year. Franz Schubert’s compositions were often inspired by poetry dealing with roaming about or taking leave – words that capture the feelings of foreignness and loneliness which lead us to yearn for security. But how do these works sound in the 21st century, what with the pandemic forcing us to stay apart and with millions of people around the globe forced to leave their homelands, fleeing into new insecurity? The concert enacts an answer in musical dimensions.

Duo

Dmitri Schostakowitsch (1906–1975): Sonate op. 134
György Kurtág (*1926): Tre Pezzi op. 14
Franz Schubert (1797–1828): Sonate a-Moll und Rondo h-Moll

When the violinist Christian Tetzlaff and the pianist and conductor Lars Vogt perform together, the result is always an extraordinarily risky expedition into uncharted territories, guided by the trust that stems from true friendship. Schubert’s minor spheres, often gliding into an idealized otherworldly major key, are just as perfect a territory for such expeditions as are the masterly duos by the Russian Shostakovich and the Hungarian Kurtág, testing as they do the limits of yearning, sensibility and sarcasm.
