LIED UND LYRIK: EICHENDORFF

“I do not intend to describe my life, but the time and its changes that I have lived through, in other words: experiences in the broadest sense,” wrote Joseph von Eichendorff in his memoirs. The Romantic poet and the many facets of his imagination are at the center of this Lied und Lyrik program, as part of the series curated by Julius Drake. Baritone Konstantin Krimmel joins the pianist to perform some of the most celebrated Eichendorff settings by Mendelssohn, Brahms, and Schumann as well as lesser-known works of the late 19th and 20th centuries, with an actor reading selected poems.
