Mahler, Schubert, Strauss im KKL
Benefizkonzert mit dem Human Rights Orchestra
Donnerstag, 6. Juni 2019
Rachel Harnisch, Sopran Human Rights Orchestra Alessio Allegrini, Leitung
The lonely summit of this Thursday evening in the concert hall of the KKL is the Swiss soprano Rachel Harnisch. She sings the quiet and introverted songs "Nacht und Träume" (Franz Schubert) and "Morgen" by Richard Strauss. In Schubert's notation there is only one dynamic statement: "pianissimo". But Rachel Harnisch gives this word richness and inwardness, leading the piece to meditation and prayer in one. Fragile, beautiful and supportive, her vocals fill the KKL. The room provides the basic acoustic work and Rachel Harnisch knows how to use it subtly and artistically. An exciting moment just in his inexperience.
In "Morning" the soprano weaves an intimate dialogue with the concert master Sebastian Breuninger of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. Wide arches that naturally weave around each other. With metered vibrato inserted sets it short peaks, dense waves, which aim directly into the interior.
