Programme

Camenae Collective: Patricia de la Vega piano | Tiziana Pintus violin | Henriette Posthuma de Boer texts

Weltschmerz, a term coined by the German author Jean Paul, denotes the kind of feeling experienced by someone who understands that physical reality can never satisfy the demands of the soul. As is illustrated in this quote: “Dort, wo du nicht bist, ist das Glück.” (Schmidt van Lübeck: Der Wanderer) “There, where you are not, is your happiness.”

This view of the world was widely shared among romantic authors.

Well, I cannot say I share this view, but I cannot honestly say I do not know the feeling…

…I love researching the historical setting of my programmes. Only then I can get a clearer idea of the artist’s possible point of view and come to a deeper understanding of his message.
I also look at other art forms from the same period to gain extra insights…in this case it was all made easy for me, as Robert Schumann for instance (one of the composers I chose for this concert) frequently expressed his deep admiration for the novels of Jean Paul Friedrich Richter. He once said that he learned “more counterpoint from Jean Paul than from my music teacher”.

What also fascinates me about the Romantic period is how they looked into the unusual and fabulous, the strange and surprising, the ghostly and the emphasis on extreme subjectivism. Self-expression, passion, self-respect…it all resonate strongly with me.

Because this is what I love about music and art: the message behind it.
It can be anything…an idea, a description, emotions…but I need to make it mine in order to be able to give a convincing rendition…it not just about notes…I need to get inspired and am committed to inspire!

I hope to see you on November 15th!
