no.9, Wie bist du, meine Königin

Passion and introspection are the themes of this recital,

given by rising star baritone Konstantin Krimmel and pianist Hélène Grimaud. From the anguish of «Wie rafft ich mich auf in der Nacht» to the tenderness of «Wie bist du, meine Königin», Brahms’s opus 32 songs are among his most emotionally direct. They are paired here with Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov’s mysterious Silent Songs, described by the composer as «silence set to music».
