SCHUMANN’S “DICHTERLIEBE”, EXTENDED
A rather special encounter | mathias rüegg
Chamber music | Lieder & singing | Concert | Adults
Jazz adaptations and Lied in its classic form: interpretations of “Dichterliebe” by tenor Juraj Holly and pianist Ladislav Fančowič, enmeshed with arrangements by Lia Pale and mathias rüegg. Musical perspectives start to shift. In 2018, for a project in Cologne, mathias rüegg wrote new arrangements for 12 of Robert Schumann’s Lieder, and expanded on the idea of setting them alongside the originals. Before they knew it, Holly was singing to rüegg’s accompaniment, Pale sang accompanied by Fančowič, the piano parts entwined and all the boundaries grew blurred.
