Shakespeare and jazz – do they go together? Absolutely! Especially when jazz pianist Bernd Lhotzky sets the English writer’s sonnets to music and Birgit Minichmayr performs them. She lends her dark, expressive voice to the music of tango, gospel. The world-music jazz quartet Quadro Nuevo, acclaimed for its melancholy warmth, will help to envelope the Renaissance poet’s texts in an intense, contemporary sound.
