“Musical moments” can be moments of memories or reflection, a retrospect of the past or an anticipation of the future, that are enriched by hearing or thinking of a special piece of music in that same moment. Further artists in the series include Daniel Barenboim, Yuja Wang, Nadine Sierra, Avi Avital and Albrecht Mayer just to name a few.
As an interpreter of Classical Song, South-Tyrolean baritone Andrè Schuen has few equals in the scene. His clear and recognizable sound, with an emphasis on lyrical qualities and subtle vibrato, is said to be one of the most valued assets in the classical world for bringing Lieder to a 21st century audience. Franz Schubert’s famous Litanei makes for a convincing case as Andrè Schuen’s version, accompanied by long-term partner Daniel Heide on piano, reveals the melancholy work of an early singer-songwriter in all its heartfelt naturalness.
