In the frame of the German Language Month 2017, Ledra Music Soloists presents an anthology of German language art-songs from the 19th century. With their music, the composers give their own interpretation; the result is a new world in which sound and text co-exists in something new. In the company of established Cypriot musicians, we invite you to join us in a recursion of the diverse subject matters of romanticism: love, rejection, passion, death, betrayal, revenge, tragedy, salvation, as well as various philosophical matters about life, art and artistic creation. Poet Josef Karl Benedikt von Eichendorff once said that “song sleeps in all things” and that a “magic word” can draw it forth.
