Anton Webern Fünf Gesänge nach Gedichten von
Stefan George, op. 4
Robert Schumann­ Dichterliebe, op. 48­

Robert Schumann and Anton Webern, Heinrich Heine and Stefan George: two centuries, two perspectives on love. One of the undisputed masterpieces of the Romantic Lied, Dichterliebe is paired in this concert with Anton Webern’s rarely-performed Five Songs on Poems by Stefan George. Love appears as a bringer of both joy and suffering, leading either to salvation or final destruction.

Admission free, programme 10€

In collaboration with: The Parish of Meilahti

Sonja Leván, Jarno Lehtola
The perfect interpretations of these works show Rautavaara as the master of postmodern vocal music.
