„…im Land wo die Zitronen blühn!“ (.. in the country where the lemon-trees bloom!). There’s no doubt this means Italy, that longed-for land of the south. A programme of music and literature which places Mediterranean flair and Italian joie de vivre front and centre. Actor, Italy-lover, and author Michael Dangl reads from his book “Orangen für Dostojewski” (Oranges for Dostoevsky) and from his “Hymnus an den Süden” (Hymn to the South). Music is provided by the tenor Pablo Cameselle and pianist Andrea Linsbauer. Performing classics by Liszt and Mendelssohn, they show that, even in the 19th century, Italy was often celebrated in song as a travel destination. The programme also includes works such as familiar Neapolitan canzoni by Tosti and Leoncavallo, as well as well-known hits from the 20s, such as “Torna a Surriento!” and “Non ti scordar di me!”, both written by Ernesto De Curtis.
