Neuland.Lied | Laute Stimmen schweigen...

Wed 15. 6. 2022

While the orchestral song developed into its own genre of weight in the 19th century in the wake of cycles such as Hector Berlioz's »Nuits d'été«, songs accompanied by a chamber ensemble remained the absolute exception until around the turn of the 20th century. The young baritone Konstantin Ingenpaß, first prize winner in 2020 at the renowned song competition of the Hugo Wolf Academy in Stuttgart, has now put together a complete program of genre examples accompanied by a small string group especially for Neuland.Lied. Viktor Ullmann, murdered in Auschwitz in 1944, wrote his three Traklund Steffen settings with string trio in 1943 for performances in the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Stefan Heucke arranged a selection of seven of Hugo Wolf's 53 Mörike songs – the entire group was composed within a few months of 1888 - for baritone and strings. Aribert Reimann, in turn, played with the idea of orchestrating a selection of Franz Liszt's harmonically complex songs decades ago, as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's piano accompanist. Arranged in 2013, the seven lyric settings from the master's middle and late creative periods join together to form a cycle in which each movement is the logical continuation of the one that preceded it.
