Due to a death in the family, Ms. Nina Stemme has unfortunately had to leave Aix-en-Provence and return to Sweden. She will therefore be unable to perform her recital scheduled for Monday 19 July, which we must cancel.

ROBERT SCHUMANN — Sechs Gedichte, op. 90 ; Requiem, op. 90b

RICHARD WAGNER — Wesendonck-Lieder

KURT WEILL — Surabaya-Johnny ; Nanna's Lied ; Je ne t’aime pas ; Youkali

RICHARD STRAUSS — Zueignung, Ruhe, meine Seele, Befreit, Cäcilie

Nina Stemme, the greatest Isolde of her generation, invites us to a veritable Western love story that represents the height of German Romanticism. Wagner’s Wesendonck-Lieder, a feverish testing ground for Tristan und Isolde, are accompanied by the troubled melancholy of Schumann, the nostalgic post-Romanticism of Strauss, and the ironic detachment of Weill.
