Centred around Brahms’ famous Liebeslieder Waltzes for choir and piano four hands, this programme evokes the passion of love by looking at the affiliation of three great German Romantic composers.
For the poetic material in this programme, we have chosen works setting the most beautiful love poetry of Romantic poets such as Goethe, Heine, Eichendorff and Mörike, whose words are transfigured by the music.
The programme seeks to point out the links between the three composers who form part of a musical continuum, inheriting the philosophy of their elders and inspiring the next generation in their turn.
Félix Mendelssohn, Lieder for a cappella choir
Robert Schumann, Romances et Ballades for a cappella choir
Franz Liszt, paraphrases
Johannes Brahms, Liebeslieder-Walzer for a cappella choir and piano four hands
Yoan Héreau and Tanguy de Williencourt, piano four hands
Mathieu Romano, conductor
