The King of Lieder is back

After quite a disappointing concert of the Brahms' "Die schöne Magelone", Matthias Goerne came back to TCE past Thursday (December 10 2009) and brought some of the most memorable singing ever: Bach cantatas straight in your face!  
Ch.Eschenbach and all of us who were in the theater that night, were totally mesmerized.  Not only Matthias was at his best, but his complicity with the orchestra was nearly perfect.
One of those evenings that remains with you foreva.

The program was completed by a magnificient cycle of songs by Hanns Eisler.

 Cantate "Der Friede sei mit dir" BWV 158
Cantate "Ich will den Kreuzstab gerne tragen" BWV 56
Cantate "Ich habe genug" BWV 82
Hanns Eisler : Ernste Gesänge

Vielen Dank!
