Friedrich Hölderlin & “Lied” (German for “Song”)

During this summer we not only had many beautiful first performances with live audiences, but also mezzo-soprano Magdalena Hinz and me had an equally marvellous project with “Lieder” (songs). Together we formed a repertoire including masterworks by Hugo Wolf, Franz Schubert and the like. Furthermore, we premiered the musical version of Friedrich Hölderlin’s poem “Die Kürze” (The Brevity) by German composer Stefan Heucke (*1959), which can be watched at the end of the video.

Aside from the Corona- and Beethoven-year 2020, we also celebrate German poet Friedrich Hölderlin’s 250th anniversary – same as master Beethoven.
