Brilliant, nuanced, slender – Marlis Petersen is a soprano who effortlessly achieves the balance between beguiling singing and expressive phrasing. For good reason she is one of the leading opera and lieder performers of our time. In this concert, she and her piano accompanist Stephan Matthias Lademann undertake a foray through the German Romantic lied with works by Johannes Brahms, Carl Loewe, Franz Schubert, Clara and Robert Schumann, and others. The musical miniatures tell of the world, nature and the human search for meaning.
