The Song Set Chicago presents: Die Heimkehr

  • The Coffee Shop 1135 West Sheridan Road Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)

Daniel Johanson will be presenting the six songs with texts by Heine from Schubert's Schwanengesang. Published posthumously, the songs were published in a different order than Heine's poems. Daniel will be presenting them in the original order, as they appear in his cycle of poetry, Die Heimkehr.

Das Fischermädchen

Am Meer

Die Stadt

Der Doppelgänger

Ihr Bild

Der Atlas

Jordan Crice offers a piano piece written in the same year as the Heimkehr cycle (1827), also published posthumously. The Impromptu in B-flat Major, Op. 142 No. 3, is a dramatic contrast to Daniel's vocal selection, which highlights the immense emotional and stylistic range Schubert had at his command during the final months of his career and life.
