A member of the Frankfurt Opera Company, Liviu Holender is a singer-actor who is as comfortable in the operatic repertoire as he is in musicals. He dives into romanticlieder (art songs) with Juliette Journaux, one of the young French pianists most drawn to this repertoire.

The two artists daringly present a demanding program, which will delight fans of this genre where poetic and literary power is combined with the greatest musical subtlety. Schubert's pieces are quite surprising and require the greatest finesse from the singer, an infinite variety of colors, an extreme attention to nuances and harmonic construction. And, as a reward, excerpts from Des Knaben Wunderhorn by Mahler, a lost gaze towards the distant horizons of childhood.
