Work introduction

In line with the motto of the Kissinger Sommer in 2015 – “European Neighbours”, the “LiederWerkstatt” (song workshop) with Wolfgang Rihm and 6 other composers was given the task of addressing the contrast between near and far, strange and familiar, from Romanticism to the present day. In Funde im Verscharrten Rihm set four poems by the Swedish writer Gunnar Ekelöf, who is among the most significant Swedish 20th-century lyricists, for baritone with soprano and piano. The poems were translated into German by Nelly Sachs.
