Sleeps a song in things abounding
Christoph von Weitzel – baritone
Ulrich Pakusch - piano
The baritone Christoph von Weitzel sings and introduces the most beautiful German songs in an extraordinary way.
”Weitzel’s interpretation of these Lieder advances into existential horizons of life. It is not only beautiful singing which is the point of interest, it is the substance of the words intensified by music and describing fundamental situations of the human soul.”
So in Weitzels interpretation the German songs originating in seven centuries with all their wisdom and truth become lively miniatures , large scenes, ballads or simply touching moments of human live.
The range of his dramatization encompasses a day live from morning into the night as well as the whole journey through human live.
The multiple facets of childhood, youth, adulthood, old age and death are exposed and presented in those songs.
During the recital many subjects of vital significance in human live will appear on stage and become alive:
The good, the evil, friendship and hostility, day and night, rise and fall, nature and the elements, the sea and the stars, joy and pain, peace and war, and not last:
Love, hope and faith.
Between the groups of songs there are short spoken explanatory comments and introductions into the songs and stories in Italian and English language.
