Ensemble ”die reihe“
The Doppelgänger, the grotesque reflection, the distorted picture: Using Schubert’s Lied Der Doppelgänger (which in Russian is called Dvoinik) as a point of departure, Carinthian tenor Alexander Kaimbacher joins the ensemble “die reihe” and the Russian vocal quintet Ensemble Pavel Sharomov for an engagement with the cryptic motif interpreted in so many ways in the age of Romanticism – the epitome of the uncanny and unsettling for the likes of Heinrich Heine and E.T.A. Hoffmann as well as Jean Paul, Kafka and Dostoyevsky. In new compositions St. Petersburg composer Anton Tanonov tells the story of the Doppelgänger as he uses the iconic Schubert Lieder as models which he changes around. At present, Tanonov’s Dvoinik consists of 12 songs, seven of them newly composed and titled like well-known Schubert Lieder, including The Trout, Her Picture, Tears Like Rain, Impatience. The lyrics and vocal lines of another five Schubert Lieder were put into “new clothes” – this is how Kaimbacher describes the project which transcends boundaries in many ways.
