New CD: Das Lyrische Intermezzo
In honor of Heinrich Heine’s 220th birthday, baritone Klemens Sander actor Cornelius Obonya are releasing a new program on CD, presenting for the very first time Das Lyrische Intermezzo in its entirety, through text and music.
SCHUMANN‘S «DICHTERLIEBE» FROM A COMPLETELY NEW PERSPECTIVE
Das Lyrische Intermezzo is an exciting mix of Heinrich Heine’s often bitterly ironic texts, enthrallingly recited by Cornelius Obonya, and Robert Schumann’s songs from Dichterliebe and other Heine settings. These songs, which range from the dreamlike to the idealistically romantic, are interpreted by Klemens Sander (baritone) and Uta Sander (piano).
The album has been awarded the Bank Austria Kunstpreis 2017.
