Is the song really a male domain? Not at all. Made famous as a composer’s wife, Alma Mahler took lessons with Alexander Zemlinsky and staged ambitious rehearsals of vocal chamber music during her training. The oeuvre of singer, pianist and composer Pauline Viardot-García includes several challenging song cycles. These works are joined by Arnold Schönberg’s “Song of the Wood-Dove” and the premiere of a cycle by Wolfram Wagner based on poems by Mascha Kaléko. The program is supplemented with texts – read by a male reciter – by Ingeborg Bachmann, Christine Busta, Hilde Domin, Madeleine Gustafsson, and the primordial mother of all poetesses, Sappho.

The concert will be streamed live on facebook and YouTube and will be available seven days after the concert.
