It was a shame that the Festival's original program's last night's entry to the Royal Hospital was the most weak. This does not mean that the house was full, but that there were gaps between the unnumbered and numbered seats. However, this does not mean that the courtyard's appearance was unpleasant. The fact that the concert started on Wednesday must be considered.
We think it was a shame, because Andre Schuen was on stage, and very well, Andre Schuen. He was an Italian baritone who was raised in the northern region where milka chocolate cows are found and kept Otzi's frozen body hidden for millennia. The common thread in the story of fifteen songs that Schuen sang last evening, accompanied by Heide on the piano, is not violence. Rather, it is the common bond between love and the sound 'corpus" by Johannes Brahms. Yes, there was a love that was snatched, unleashed, and filled with not-so-recommended reactions. However, this poem of Ludwig describes the relationship between Magelone, Count Pedro. Tieck also described the bond as a beautiful love story.
The letter was superimposed, sharp and sharper as the sun set, allowing the public to see and understand the problems that every love relationship brings: from the initial dazzle to doubts about one's worth, to the eventual resentment. . Schuen sang "Liebe kam aus Fernen Landen" ('Love came form distant lands): "If your beloved doesn't love you, there is nothing left for the sick person."

The recital quickly became a stimulating account about events that concern all of us, one way or the other. The quick passing of the "strides" of bliss, when happiness is complete, the short duration of the best year of life, when flowers still flourish on the shore nourished by the currents of desire, and then the thrill of getting out what we call "the comfort zone", in the assurance of finding a true love that will not leave except with death. In short, we can all be the beautiful Magelone and Count Pedro. You will fall asleep with the 'Cradle song' by Brahms. Schuen added a second delicious encore to give you a good taste.
