Schöne Welt, wo bist Du? (2013)

Strauss, Berg, Mahler, Kilpinen, Schubert, Schonberg, Wolf, Hesse

Michael Gees, Julia Kleiter

The lament for the lost paradise by Friedrich Schiller and Franz Schubert can also be understood as a challenge to shape the future - and even more so from our point of view today than in their era. How should the world become “more fair” unless we do something about it? Who else should do it if not we ourselves? “The died-out meadow mourns, no godhead comes before my eyes” (Schiller): people felt even at that time – over and over – that they were godforsaken. And today? Who or what in a disenchanted world shall enkindle the intelligence of hearts? How shall we set about achieving the very necessary realisation of that great dream, a future society based on empathy? How can we make up for what we have done to each other and to the planet? Where can we find the courage to take responsibility for the further progress of evolution? And the certainty that the meanwhile invisible will become visible?

Michael Gees

Born 1956 in Limburg, Germany, Christoph Prégardien began his musical education as a choirboy. He then studied singing with Martin Gründler and Karlheinz Jarius in Frankfurt, Carla Castellani in Milan, Alois Treml in Stuttgart and attended Hartmut Höll’s lieder-class. 
Widely regarded as among the foremost lyric tenors, Christoph Prégardien frequently collaborates with conductors such as Barenboim, Chailly, Gardiner, Harnoncourt, Herreweghe, Luisi, Metzmacher, Nagano, Sawallisch and Thielemann. His repertory spans a wide range from the great Baroque, Classical and Romantic Oratorios to 20th century works by Britten, Killmayer, Rihm, Stravinsky. 
Recognized as an eminent recitalist, Christoph Prégardien is regularly welcomed at the major recital venues of Paris, London, Brussels, Berlin, Cologne, Amsterdam, Salzburg, Zurich, Vienna, Barcelona and Geneva, as well as during his concert tours throughout Italy, Japan and North America. Chance leads him back to the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover, where he resumes his compositional studies and eventually graduates. He now develops first rate pianistic chops on his own, composes a number of works, gains international renown as lied accompanist of extraordinary proportions with Christoph Prégardien and also appears in concerts globally; in Paris, London, New York and Tokio. All the while, he nurses and feeds his preference for combining the performance of music of past masters with living inspiration, thereby creating remarkable performances with his instrument.
