The atmospheric ambiance of the ruins of the former Benedictine monastery at Arnoldstein forms the backdrop to another Carinthian Music Salon in 2019. The expressive Viennese soprano Lisa Rombach just recently received rave reviews as Jeanne in the world première of a new opera, Jeanne & Gilles by François Descamps, in Vienna. She and the versatile, equally expressive Swiss tenor August Schram engage with the concept of love, and occasionally, the two of them engage in duets. In cooperation with the experienced accompanist Alejandro Picó-Leonís they have selected a series of works for soprano and tenor full of rich imagery from the Romantic era. Starting with the hot-blooded folk songs adapted by Johannes Brahms, the artists move on to the theme of the lonely lover and to Schumann’s conciliatory family scene. Cultural historian Wilhelm Deuer will describe the history and significance of the monastery ruin at Arnoldstein in the tried and tested manner.
