Unique voice explores new avenues

The countertenor Andreas Scholl is a world star who will now also be moving outside his regular baroque repertoire. In a unique recital that is part of the Festival of Flanders Ghent he takes the listener on an existential journey in three stages: 'despair', 'quest' and 'hope and spirituality’. Playing a central role is the romantic image of the seeker or 'Wanderer' as immortalized by Schubert; the lonely man seeking meaning, hope and faith. Classical and romantic piano music create oases of tranquillity between the songs by Mozart, Schubert, Haydn and Brahms.
