Im Nebel ein Licht
A Janáček-Strauß-Evening (2022)
Leoš Janáček has plumbed the depths of human expression with his music; the sounds of his vocal and instrumental works reveal an entire world. Likewise, the literary oeuvre of Botho Strauß pursues genuinely »grand themes« on a quest for life’s secrets. A selection of literary texts as well as art songs and chamber music by Janáček lend structure to this evening, directed by Jürgen Flimm, between the realms of drama and opera.
