Esther Dierkes (soprano)

Markus Hadulla (piano & conductor)

Songs and ensembles by Franz Schubert

After the rather pensive and philosophical men's ensemble project Nachthelle!, this second Schubert ensemble program, conceived by pianist Markus Hadulla, is much more cheerful. This time, ladies are also involved, allowing a performance of Schubert's delicious and unfortunately all too rarely heard trio Der Hochzeitsbraten. There won't be a dry eye in the house!

Weißer Saal, Neues Schloss

Start: 19:30

Rilke und das Lied um 1900

Götz Payer (moderator)

Students of the song class Prof. Götz Payer

Songs by Alma Mahler, Arnold Schönberg, Richard Strauss, Max Reger, Alexander von Zemlinsky and others  

with Josua Bernbeck (baritone), Giorgia Cappello (mezzo-soprano), Julia Anna Koch (piano), Marite Männi (piano), Jana Purešić (piano, Lars Tappert (tenor)

In September 2023, the exhibition "Singen! Song and Literature" was opened as the third exhibition project as part of #LiteraturBewegt. The exhibition shows part of the rich treasure trove of songs from the Marbach Music Department.
The program of this song afternoon focuses on the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, whose extensive estate the DLA 2022 was able to acquire, in settings from the turn of the century.

Free admission

Humboldt Saal, DLA Marbach

Start: 15:00

Des Knaben Wunderhorn

Marie Seidler (mezzo-soprano)

Christoph Pohl (baritone)

Marcelo Amaral (piano)

Songs by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Arnold Schönberg, Johannes Brahms, Walter Courvoisier, Richard Strauss and Gustav Mahler

The three anthologies Des Knaben Wunderhorn, in which Achim von Arnim and Clemens Brentano published over 700 folk song texts between 1805 and 1808, are an inexhaustible source for composers. The best-known Wunderhorn settings are certainly by Gustav Mahler, which will be on the program this evening, as well as lesser-known Wunderhorn songs by Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Johannes Brahms and others.

Weißer Saal, Neues Schloss

Start: 19:30

Rose, die Müllerin

Julian Prégardien (tenor)

Götz Payer (moderator)

Songs by Franz Schubert, Johann Friedrich Reichardt, Fanny Hensel, Wilhelm Berger and others.

Together with Johannes Held, Julian Prégardien developed the idea for this Liederspiel, which takes us on a musical journey through time to the origins of Franz Schubert's song cycle Die schöne Müllerin.

In the second part of the evening, Johannes Held and Götz Payer will also perform the entire Schubert cycle.

Konzertsaal, HMDK Stuttgart

Start: 19:00

Meisterklasse 4/4

Kammersängerin Brigitte Fassbaender (lecturer)

What a joy!
We already had the pleasure of experiencing Brigitte Fassbaender as a lecturer at the 41st Stuttgart Lied Masterclass in 2015 - and are now particularly pleased that we were able to win her back for a Lied masterclass in 2023!

Admission free. Registration requested

HMDK Stuttgart
