Juan Jiménez, Federico García Lorca, Vicente Aleixandre, Antonio Machado -
These are resonant names of Spanish literature of the first half of the 20th century, which was darkly overshadowed by civil war and Franco's dictatorship.
García Lorca even fell victim to it literally, he was murdered in 1936.
Each of these four poets dealt with the social conditions in their own way and sang the wonderful landscape and customs of Andalusia.
They created enchanting and stirring texts. Jimenez and Aleixandre were even awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature for their work.
The music for this first part of the program comes from the pens of Isaac Albeniz and Manuel de Falla, who also had a deep relationship with the Spanish South. Manuel de Falla
was from Cadiz, so he was an Andalusian and spent his life exploring the peculiarities of the folklore of the South, of Flamenco, and drawing inspiration from it.
In the second part of the evening, works by foreign authors and musicians will be presented,
who were fascinated and captivated by this land. They direct their artistic gaze
essentially from the outside to Andalusia - like the texts of Hemingway and Rilke; two Habaneras
by Claude Debussy and an Alborada del gracioso by Maurice Ravel provide the counterpoint.
Gerd Heinz - director, actor, author, theater director, and theater teacher - was active after his
studies in philosophy, German studies, and art history at many major theaters in
the German-speaking area, such as the Schauspielhaus Hamburg, the Burgtheater Vienna, and the
Residenztheater in Munich. In the 1980s, he was the artistic director of the Schauspielhaus Zürich.
After turning to opera, he was a leading director and member of the
Opera management at the Theater Freiburg for several years. In 1997, he took up a professorship at the University of Music in Freiburg.
Guido Heinke is a pianist and lecturer at the University of Music in Freiburg, he leads the Subenhauskonzerte
in Staufen and the Markgräfler Musikherbst, where he has performed with many renowned musicians.
Since 1996, he has been giving master classes in Korea and China.
