MICHAEL SCHADE’S MUSIC SALON
Songs for all tastes
When the concert halls were closed due to Covid, KS Michael Schade set up a “music salon”, with the aim of giving young artists the chance to perform in a small-scale setting. “The idea is still the same!” says the world-renowned tenor. In his latest series of concerts at MuTh, he invites young professional artists to take part in his “salon”. Schade holds masterclasses, sings, and acts as moderator. He leads his students and the audience toward an awareness of the romanticism of silence; he guides them through a musical exploration of Great Britain; he makes their hearts beat faster with Brahms’ Liebeslieder-Walzer ("Love Song Waltzes”); and, in the final concert, he creates the relaxed mood of a Vienna wine tavern on a balmy summer’s day. This is a series which feeds not just the soul, but also the body. Each salon includes a serving of delicacies appropriate to the occasion!
