Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin

Songs by Beethoven, Liszt & Wolf

Henschel & Waschk
{{ message.content }}

For the third time "Home Music Berlin" at the Schinkel Pavillon, this time with a thoughtful selection of songs for Good Friday, including works by Beethoven, Liszt and Wolf. The evening begins with Beethoven's religous Gellert-Songs, followed by Liszt's engagement with Renaissance poet Francesco Petrarca. He set three of his sonnets, which he later recycled in the Italian part of his Années de Pélerinage. The three-part concert closes with Dietrich Henschel, who has recently made a name for him as an interpreter of the works of Hugo Wolf. Especially striking is the song Karwoche (Holy Week), based on a poem by Mörike. Very fitting.


A co-production with Naxos Audiovisual, PARS Media and Schinkel Pavillon.
