Forth Concert at the House of Engineers

Song recital with works by Richard Strauss and more

Miriam Kutrowatz, Soprano
Justus Zeyen, Piano

Even though a somewhat inglorious occasion, namely the conflict between Richard Strauss and his publisher, led to the birth of the ingenious "Ophelia Songs," the composer followed in the footsteps of Johannes Brahms with the three Shakespearean settings and has captivated audiences ever since with Ophelia's agony of soul turned into music as she is driven to madness and suicide after the death of her father. As a "whirlwind conquering the stages of the opera world" (Bühne), the celebrated young soprano Miriam Kutrowatz enters the stage of the new Bösendorfer Hall and spins a fascinating musical round around Shakespeare's dramas of the soul. The young Austrian has already thrilled audiences under Phillipe Jordan, Andres Orozco-Estrada, in her 2021 debut at the Salzburg Festival or alongside Piotr Beczala. Kiel-born Justus Zeyen, one of the most distinguished pianists in the lied repertoire and a regular accompanist of such greats as Diana Damrau, Juliane Banse, Christiane Karg, Dorothea Röschmann, Florian Boesch and Michael Schade, will be giving her first recital together with the young soprano. So there is a certain pride in being able to invite you to this artistic premiere at the Haus der Ingenieure!
