Do you love Wagner? on tour again!
With a strong kick-off in Leverkusen last September and with a new dynamic combination of quartet friends – Karolina Öhman, Stefan Preyer, and João Carlos Pacheco – I am bringing the question Do you love Wagner? to audiences in Basel, Bern, and Zürich in Januar 2023, followed by a concert in the Düsseldorfer Tonhalle in June 2023. Provocation is part of the package here, offering the audience the opportunity to question their personal view regarding Wagner – a topic that has gained particular poignancy with today's cancel culture: Is it permissible to love a work when the person who created it is hardly lovable? Where does political correctness end and cancel culture begin? Can I even look at a work of art without bias? And yes, do we actually love Wagner?
