Romantic song evening with wagner tenor in the golden eagle’s hat

romantic song evening with wagner tenor in the golden eagle's hat

The french tenor anthony lo papa, who has been a regular guest at the wagner festival in the climatic health resort for four years, had invited to a wonderful song evening with the famous song cycle "die schone mullerin" invited by franz schubert. He was accompanied on the piano by wolfgang pinkow-margerie.
The visitors felt that the musician’s special love and devotion was to german songs.
"The beautiful muller was composed by franz schubert as a song cycle for voice and piano in 1823 and it has not lost its magic to this day. The text is based on the collection of poems by wilhelm muller contained in the 77 posthumous poems from the papers of a traveling forest horn player published in 1821. Schubert set 20 of the 25 poems to music, and the content is decidedly romantic.
The interpretations of the first songs of the cycle were joyful and with a certain urge to love, and wolfgang pinkow-margerie was a master at providing the piano accompaniment in a fast rhythm to match. The second part of the song cycle then turned more into resignation, melancholy and impotent anger and showed the boundaries between an unbridled will to live, fear and despondency, melancholy and even depression.
The first concert was given by anthony lo papa in the johanniskirche church. He dedicated it to his late mother, who very often vacationed in wirsberg with her family. The tenor praised the collaboration with wolfgang pinkow-margerie: "it was a great pleasure that he was so well prepared. Already at the first rehearsal we found together."

Expert: no clear winner in tv duel in hanover

expert: no clear winner in tv duel in hanover

That’s why media scientist wilfried kopke sees no clear winner. "Both have served different electoral milieus without being able to assert themselves decisively against the other," the hanover university professor told the deutsche presse-agentur in hanover on friday. On 20. January the state parliament is elected in hanover.

"Mcallister was convincing with his physical language and mobilized the CDU’s core voters, but weil was able to win over young and undecided voters with his language," kopke explained. Both the SPD and the CDU, on the other hand, had declared their top candidate the sole winner immediately after the debate on thursday evening.

The differences in objectives were most apparent in the opponents’ closing statements: "both focused on mobilizing their voters, which is especially important for the mainstream parties because they have problems getting their people to vote," said kopke. Mcallister spoke to the 55-plus age group, tailored to the NDR audience. "This was a statement for the people who are beyond midlife and live in the countryside."

Kurz is the clear winner of the election in austria

Kurz is the clear winner of the election in austria

The conservative ovp and the greens are the big winners of the parliamentary elections in austria. According to projections, the ovp with party leader sebastian kurz received 37.1 percent of the vote, an increase of 5.6 points compared to the 2017 election.

The greens, with top candidate werner kogler, made it back into parliament on sunday evening with 14 percent, virtually equaling their record from 2013. The ovp and the greens surprisingly had enough mandate together for an alliance. The government crisis surrounding the ibiza video, which led to the new election, did not harm kurz and his party in any way.

The losers of the election to the national council are the right-wing fpo and the social democrats. The spo of party leader pamela rendi-wagner only managed 21.8 percent – a minus of about 5 percentage points and the historically worst result of the spo. The defeat for the crisis-ridden fpo was even more pronounced, with only 16 percent of the vote. Two years ago, the right-wing populists received 26 percent of the vote. General secretary harald vilimsky indicated that the fpo sees its role in the opposition in the future. Norbert hofer, head of the fpo, also did not see the election results as a mandate "for a progressive entry into coalition talks". The liberal neos improved by 2.5 percentage points to 7.8 percent.
