Recorded live at the Musikhalle Hamburg in February 1992

In this transcendent performance, acclaimed composer and pianist Michael Nyman joins forces with the incomparable Ute Lemper and the renowned Michael Nyman Band. From the ulterior meanings of Mozart’s letters to the humorously grotesque verses of Rimbaud and the autobiographical poetry of Celan, this concert captures the essence of artistic mastery and resonates with themes of resilience and remembrance, underscored by Nyman’s emotive compositions and Lemper’s captivating vocals.

A true gem for music lovers and connoisseurs alike, this exclusive new release invites you to rediscover two iconic artists in an extraordinary collaboration that ranges from musical heights to moments of reflection.
