Crowdfunding finished
Between day and night. Between dream and reality. Between you and me. What is this ‘in-between’? Space? Time? Possibility? What lies outside the in-between seems confined, within this dimension, though, resides freedom, dissolution of limits, and a spirit of departure.

Project description show hide

What is this project all about?

Intermediate states, intermediate worlds and intermediate nuances have always inspired artists, in self-analysis, in the analysis of the times, in dealing with love and death. In this vein, Johannes Brahms leads us in his Abenddämmerung (Twilight of the evening) to a sensual experience that reaches far beyond temporality. By the same token, we meet death as a gentle transition in Respighi’s La fine, whereas Korngold celebrates the timeless moment in Unvergänglichkeit (Immortality).

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

As an Italo-German singer and Persian-German pianist – ourselves biographically between worlds – it is our desire to combine rarely, in some cases even un-recorded lieder by Italian composers of the last century (Respighi, Pizzetti, Zandonai) with German lieder and musical renderings of Persian poetry. A scholarship or any other kind of funding and support would enable us to realise the recording and publication of our programme as a CD or on streaming services.

This programme addresses people who like music, art, philosophy and literature; it will resonate with everybody who enjoys cultural exchange and wants to go beyond the mainstream, discovering new repertoire in the Lied genre.

Why would you support this project?

... because it offers a fresh perspective on what a Lied cycle can be, and because it provides a new way of experiencing adjustment:

In a time of apparent standstill, we would like to draw attention with this programme on the cornucopia of possibilities and the passion for development. By taking on thresholds, the listener may open doors to find himself in a time of transition – and realise that we are constantly in situations that allow change. By intensely experiencing the here and now, one is completely at oneself. Between

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

A scholarship or any other kind of funding and support would enable us to realise the recording and publication of our programme as a CD and on streaming services; there will be costs in the following areas:

  • room hire
  • piano tuner
  • sound engineer (recording, editing)
  • travel expenses, food and accomodation
  • booklet (cover, photos, translations)
  • label minimum purchase
Who are the people behind the project?

We are thankful for the support we get from the German Music Council as part of the scholarship programme NEUSTART KULTUR
