Musical Sunday

  • Franz Schubert: "The beautiful miller"
  • Marcus Imbsweiler and Timo J. Herrmann
  • Concert, Literature

Franz Schubert deserves credit for having made something great out of the “small” genre of art song. Most convincingly in his song cycles Die schöne Müllerin and Die Winterreise, both based on texts by the poet Wilhelm Müller. Compared to Die Winterreise, Die schöne Müllerin is considered to be much simpler and more pleasing, as it is still rooted in the Biedermeier world.
However, the fact that there is also a great deal of forward-looking and ambiguous content in it will be the subject of the last Musical Sunday before the summer break.

Timo Jouko Herrmann and Marcus Imbsweiler are two enthusiasts who have their very own linguistic approach to music.
Imbsweiler has previously published novels and stories about composers from Haydn to Shostakovich.
Herrmann is guest conductor of the Heidelberg Symphony Orchestra; his rediscovery of the song of joyPer la ricuperata salute di Ofelia, composed by Salieri, Mozart and Cornetti, made him famous worldwide.
