38. The Physician Poet - Schumann's Kerner Lieder
14 October 2021, 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Schumann’s Kerner Lieder sets a remarkable cycle of nature-infused poems that are among Schumann’s most personal and affecting songs, written towards the end of his 1840 outpouring of song. The doctor-poet Kerner (see Event 40) writes of his pleasure in the rain and wind of a stormy night, his ‘Wanderlust’, his longing for forests and woods, and he surely knows better than most the answer to his posed question ‘Who made you so ill?’: ‘Nature healed me, but mankind gives me no peace’. These songs, as well as music by Hugo Wolf, are performed by thrilling young baritone Martin Hässler, who has recently joined the Vienna State Opera ensemble where roles this season will include Masetto in Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
