Is the song really a male domain? Not at all. Made famous as a composer’s wife, Alma Mahler took lessons with Alexander Zemlinsky and staged ambitious rehearsals of vocal chamber music during her training. The oeuvre of singer, pianist and composer Pauline Viardot-García includes several challenging song cycles. These works are joined by Arnold Schönberg’s "Song of the Wood-Dove" and the premiere of a cycle by Wolfram Wagner based on poems by Mascha Kaléko. The program is supplemented with texts – read by a male reciter – by Ingeborg Bachmann, Christine Busta, Hilde Domin, Madeleine Gustafsson, and the primordial mother of all poetesses, Sappho.
