KVAH members only. The evening is free but pre-registration is required to claes.schalen@med.lu.se.

On Saturday Maria presents her new Swedish interpretation of Schubert's Winterreise together with Bengt. The night before we invite you to a talk in Katarina's parish hall with Maria, Bengt and academy member Horace Engdahl. After her work on the translation, Maria discussed the work in detail with him. In addition to his work as a writer and translator, Horace enjoys sitting at the piano and has played Winterreise many times. The song cycle is also the subject of his essay "Life-giving night". Together we talk about Wilhelm Müller's seemingly simple original text, the need for translation for today's audience, Schubert's composition and the work's many symbols, and not least about how Bengt and Maria worked for over two years with this new interpretation. It will certainly be an exciting evening! The membership evening is free, but we request prior registration.
