Nina Stemme

Nina Stemme

De chez qui vient le chant de la flûte de jade invisible?
La brise du printemps le répand à travers la capitale.
Cette nuit, j’entends l’air «Adieu au saule»,
Qui n’en éprouverait pas de la nostalgie à l’écouter?

«Écoutant une flûte à Luoyang par une nuit de printemps» Li Bai (701-762)

Nina Stemme, the greatest Isolde of her generation, is also an exceptional recitalist, equally at home with the troubled melancholy of Robert Schumann, the nostalgic romanticism of Richard Strauss or the ironic detachment of Kurt Weill. For her return to the Grand Théâtre, the Swedish soprano will introduce us to one of her little-known compatriots, Sigurd von Koch, a contemporary of Gustav Mahler, whose cycle Die geheimnisvolle Flöte (“The Mysterious Flute”) is a symbolist anthology of classical Chinese poems. Robert Schumann once said: “It is for oneself that one writes a Requiem”. Nina Stemme will sing Schumann’s Op. 41 and also his resigned and solemn Requiem, in which one perceives the abyss of mental illness and death faced by the composer.
