With Birgit Minichmayr, Carolyn Breuer (soprano & alto saxophone), Bernd Lhotzky (piano & composition), Lukas Häfner (guitar), Sven Faller (upright bass) and Oliver Mewes (drums). 
Shakespeare’s sonnets are contradictory, inscrutable, mysterious, sometimes disturbing, and provocative. Bernd Lhotzky has set a selection of sonnets to music for Birgit Minichmayr. “The result: a celebration of poetry transformed into music.” (BR Klassik) 

At times whispering, at times shouting, Birgit Minichmayr conjures up extreme moods, effortlessly changing perspectives, roles and genders in the process. She moves with virtuosity between the conflicting realms of an ageing lover, an androgynous youth and a mysterious dark lady. Tactile eroticism alternates with platonic love, nightmares with fragile glimmers of hope, and morbid self-love with raging jealousy. “How does Minichmayr do it? Without it seeming contrived? That’s her art. And it has a truly addictive quality.” (ORF – Spielräume) 

As well as creating a vibrant connection between Shakespeare’s verses and the new compositions with remarkable sensitivity and fiery improvisations, the musicians also open up a richly diverse stage landscape for Birgit Minichmayr.
