WENDE SINGS WINTERREISE

2014 — Dutch composer Boudewijn Tarenskeen took apart Franz Schuberts faomous Winterreise, especially for his muse Wende and pianist Gerard Bouwhuis.

This so-called song cycle is a 19th century music form, which Tarenskeen turns into a battle between singer and pianist. The piece is directed by Gerardjan Rijnders. Tarenskeens score sings, cries, squeaks, dances, pounds and whispers.
