Photos create memories, capture fleeting moments, influence our self-image – not just since Instagram: But perceptions have changed. Looking through a photo album together seems out of date nowadays, touchingly old-fashioned. The slide show on a family night is nearly forgotten, too. Hours on the sofa and the clicking of the slide projector have a sleep-inducing effect – until you suddenly discover yourself between landscape shots. Such a scenario is the starting point for this Lied.LAB, which takes a bow to the art song: We collected slides of Heidelberger citizens and put them in a new context with songs by Mendelssohn, Ives or Wolfgang Rihm.
The key moments of life described in these songs – the first day of school, a wedding, the beginning of a great love – are reflected in the slides, which become clear when viewed: Just like a picture, a song is able to open the window to a moment or a feeling with which every person associates something. Images, stories, and sounds come together associatively to create a nostalgic evening that allows us to dive into the depths of our own memories.

Concert without intermission (ca. 60min)
