Repetoire:

Mozart: Kantate “Die ihr des unermesslichen Weltalls Schoepfer ehrt” K619

This is an energetic and varied 6-minute oratorio on how we human beings should live life — straight from the mouth of God! Well, God as imagined by extremely forward-thinking humanist clergyman F. Ziegenhagen. This piece was written for a gathering of Mozart and his fellow Freemasons. You’ll be amazed how progressive the author was, and it shows Mozart’s opinions that he chose to set this text. Ziegenhagen ended up as court preacher for Hanoverian King George I in London. I can only imagine what they thought of his teachings!

Schubert:
Die Rose
Liebhaber in allen Gestalten
Seligkeit
Der Jungling an der Quelle
Nachtviolen
An den Mond
An mein Clavier
Hin und wieder fliegen Pfeile
Liebe schwaermt auf allen Wegen
Die Gebuesche

Brahms:
Das Maedchen spricht
Feldeinsamkeit
Bei dir sind meine Gedanke
An eine Aolsharfe
