Performed works: songs by Ullmann, Schumann, Reimann & Schubert.

The selected songs often revolve around the same subject - ecstatic passion and the sublimity of the stars above all earthly things. Aribert Reimann also takes up the theme in his three French sonnets. Viktor Ullmann, on the other hand, emphasizes the spiritual dimension of life in his selected songs.

"Des Fräuleins Liebeslauschen" is the title of a song by Franz Schubert. One suspects what it might be about: "Und oben zog der Ritter Ein Kränzchen aus der Brust, Das gebunden er fest an's Gitter Und sufzt: "Blüh' in Lust...". Other songs like "Die junge Nonne", "Die Sterne" or Robert Schumann's "Lust der Sturmnacht" suggest a program where heaven and earth meet. Where between the stars, spiritual purity and earthly lust, a song evening with a special theme is created. In addition to Schumann's and Schubert's songs, which are considered a high point of the Romantic Lied genre, less frequently heard songs by Viktor Ullman and Aribert Reimann will also be heard.
