Minguet Quartett

03/11/2017 - 03/11/2017

BOZAR loves to connect the dots across the seasons and build long-term relationships with artists in whom it truly believes. This concert is a fine example of that ambition. The programme offers work by composer, clarinet player and director Jörg Widmann, who featured in a BOZAR “portrait” last season. His composition entitled Das heiße Herz will be performed by the Minguet Quartett, and by an artist whose portrait we feature in the current season: Thomas E. Bauer. The German singer’s warm baritone is a perfect match for his countryman's songs. Das heiße Herz, which is based on lyrics by the likes of Klabund and inspired by Schumann's Dichterliebe, is all about love. This makes it the perfect accompaniment to songs such as Mahler's hushed Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen.
