Rein aus Liebe

The fifth element, without which the others can never link together – that mysterious power that stands at the centre of the Sternenklänge like the little red star in the middle of the pentagram. Through it, music and poetry form unusual constellations, and pieces of music go together although separated by vast gaps of time, because time stands still for a moment. Such phases of calm are always somewhat reminiscent of the Advent and Christmas seasons and the start of the next cycle. So Julia Arsentjeva performs Schubert’s Frühlingsglaube to open the fourth Sternenklang, which creates an atmosphere of peaceful and spiritual expectancy from beginning to end in an arioso-like compilation of spoken, sung and instrumental »words«
