Chaarts Chamber Artists
with Regula Mühlemann, soprano

»Fairy Tales«

In the world of fairies, their enchanting sounds, and beguiling songs – surrounded by the mysticism of the North and its dazzling world of legends – the Swiss soprano Regula Mühlemann and the international chamber ensemble CHAARTS are literally on the ‘wings of song’. Here, grand opera, filigree singspiel and fulminant orchestral suites are fused into gripping immediacy by the congenial instrumental art of Wolfgang Renz for eleven instruments, and in the dialogue between the singer and the eleven musicians, oases of the finest musicality as well as sound spaces of remarkable fullness open up.

Edvard Grieg: Suite from Peer Gynt Nr. 1 op. 46
Vier Lieder: Solveigs Wiegenlied (Peer Gynt), Frühling (Lieder op. 33), Ein Schwan (6 Lieder op. 25), Solveigs Lied (Peer Gynt)
Giuseppe Verdi: Ninfe! Elfi! Silfi! … Sul fil d’un soffio eteseo (Aria of Nannetta from Falstaff)
Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: In dem Mondenschein im Walde op. 19 Nr. 4, Ouverture, Bunte Schlangen zweigezüngt, Scherzo, Bei des Feuers mattem Flimmern (Ein Sommernachtstraum)
Antonín Dvořák: Lied an den Mond (Rusalka)
Charles Gounod: Je veux vivre dans le rêve (Aria of Juliette from Roméo et Juliette)

And other works by Jules Massenet, Benjamin Britten, Henry Purcell and others.

Chaarts Chamber Artists
with Felix Klieser, horn


Art has the power to produce the extraordinary precisely at the edge of impossibility. Felix Klieser operates the valves on his horn with the toes of his left foot, because the horn player was born without arms. He sees this handicap above all as a challenge, which he has always met with diligence and inventiveness. This has made Felix Klieser one of the best horn players around. In August 2020, Klieser recorded his latest CD with CHAARTS. “Beyond Words” became the top seller of spring 2021 and stormed to number 1 in the classical music charts. Some arias from this production can be heard alongside classical masterpieces and an orchestral adaptation of Haydn’s so-called Quintenquartett.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Horn Quintet in E Flat, K. 407
Johann Sebastian Bach: Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, BWV 1041
Georg Friedrich Händel: Stille Amare, HWV 25
Antonio Vivaldi: Sileant zephyri, RV 638
Johann Sebastian Bach: Erbarme dich, mein Gott, BWV 244
