Frauenliebe und -leben

Robert & Clara / Fanny & Felix


The romantic song cycle Frauenliebe und -leben features the testimony of an ecstatically enamoured lady – as articulated by Robert Schumann. A male view on female affection: empathy or projection? Wiebke Lehmkuhl and Ulrike Payer juxtapose Schumann’s songs with the sounds of his eternal beloved, Clara Wieck, while Fanny Mendelssohn musically retorts to her brother Felix.
