1 – 8 May

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.

Vier Lieder: Solveigs Wiegenlied (Peer Gynt), Frühling (Lieder op. 33), Ein Schwan (6 Lieder op. 25), Solveigs Lied (Peer Gynt)
