New Music Lied & Literature Recitals Jewish Themes Concert Repertoire
"First comes music, then the words!”
Mozart was said to exclaim
“Music must always subordinate itself to the text.” insisted his great admirerer Goethe.

Every art song balances between these two extremes; where the emphasis lies may change within the measure. We search for a manner of making music open and fluid enough to respond immediately to each others’ ideas without loosing sight of our own musical imagination and specific imagery. The podium is transformed to an exciting and lively place to exchange thoughts, emotions and perceptions of all the senses.

Audience welcome to attend!
