„Winterreise“ at KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen and at Niedersächsischen Musiktage
William Kentridge has created twenty-four animated films to parallel the twenty-four lieder of Franz Schubert’s „Winterreise“. His staging designed as „a trio for singer, pianist and film projector” was a highlight of the Wiener Festwochen 2014. Matthias Goerne as singer was accompanied on the piano by Markus Hinterhäuser. After the successful premiere in Vienna and performances at the Holland Festival and the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence this coproduction will be shown on 19 September in Hannover at the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen and on 21 September in Göttingen at the Niedersächsische Musiktage.
