American composer David Lang is composer in residence of the Storioni Festival 2017. His name may not immediately ring bells, but perhaps you have unwittingly enjoyed his film music for Youth or La Grande Bellezza from the Italian cineaste Paolo Sorrentino. There is no composer that better suits the theme of Designing new traditions than David Lang. He bases his innovative, meditative and moving songs on texts by the classical master of song: Franz Schubert.

In the heart of this concert is a performance by the young soprano Nora Fischer. With her beautiful voice, adventurous character and open spirit, she has inspired several famous composers to write pieces especially for her. Yet, alongside contemporary music, she is equally at home singing classical, folk music or jazz. Together with the DoelenEnsemble, this versatile and creative singer presents the song cycle Death Speaks by David Lang.
