Shielded are the lovers
"Which of the words you speak / you give thanks / to perdition" (Celan). "A thousand darknesses of death-dealing speech" have brought Nelly Sachs and Paul Celan to the brink of silence. But it is precisely in this extreme distress that music can unfold its special power: Perhaps silence is the greatest sound a musician can make. At the end of the evening the last fragment of the text, which Arnold Schönberg transformed into music before his death, will be heard: "And yet I pray ...".

Due to the applicable distance and hygiene rules, a reservation is required:
