Classical Music

Schwerin mezzo-soprano Sophia Maeno and her piano partner Masa Novosel perform new song compositions by Friedrich Wilhelm Kücken

The composer Friedrich Wilhelm Kücken (1810-1882) is now well known to many music lovers in Schwerin. He received his artistic training as a young man in Schwerin before working successfully in major European cities. He spent the last two decades of his life in his prestigious villa on Pfaffenteich, which recently attracted attention as the location for a TV series. The Schwerin mezzo-soprano Sophia Maeno, baritone Andreas Beinhauer and pianist Masa Novosel will focus on Kücken's compositional work. They will present a selection of songs by Friedrich Wilhelm Kücken on June 15 at 7:30 pm in the foyer of the Staatstheater. This includes the well-known folk song "Ach wie ist's möglich dann, dass ich dich lassen kann" to a text by Helmina von Chézy. These rediscovered treasures can be heard on a newly released CD, which was produced in cooperation with the Mecklenburg Foundation, Deutschlandfunk Kultur and the publishing house Edition Massonneau. Publisher Reinhard Wulfhorst will host the program and review this extraordinary chick project in conversation with the contributors and guests. Tickets are available from the Mecklenburg State Theater and at the box office.
