Schubert's Tod und das Mädchen
Fri 21 Oct ’2220:15Grote Zaal
Patricia Kopatchinskaja’s genius lies both in the large outlinings and in the details. We start our PatKop weekend with Franz Schubert. Through his String Quartet no. 14 – nicknamed ‘The Death and the Maiden’ – Kopatchinskaja explores connections on the theme of death. Within this theme, hoewever, she combines compositions on a microscopic detail level. Rhythms subtly return, dance traditions throughout the ages rediscover each other. Eventually she braids everything together in a unity, where she stars in countless different roles. Maybe she will even literally be the dancer – in the end this is PatKop, so you’ll never know.
