Die Winterreise - Workshop at UiA with April Hailer and Cordula Hacke 2022

Einen Weiser seh‘ ich stehen | Unverrückt vor meinem Blick Eine Straße muß ich gehen | Die noch keiner ging zurück.
Einen Weiser seh‘ ich stehen | Unverrückt vor meinem Blick Eine Straße muß ich gehen | Die noch keiner ging zurück.

In this special weekend workshop the singing and piano students of the Department of Classical Music and Music Education at UiA were working on Schubert's song cycle DIE WINTERREISE. 

We approached this central work in Schubert's oeuvre from many angles and perspectives: musically, historically, not only analysing and interpreting this „winter voyage“, but also grasping its emotions by using acting and associative techniques.

A full performance of this work took place in Kilden on April 2, 2022.
