«…sometimes everything looks so surprising in the poet's heart — the screaming disonnances that make up life are softened by the soothing qualities of art, although often art again envelopes joy in a dark, long blanket, so that it can't be seen so openly…»
from the letters of Robert Schumann

Schubert with percussions and guitars. Schumann with jazz sound. This is not a concert — four female singers and five musicians on stage don’t just play, they live through this music. Sixteen songs form a proper stage production, complete with lyricism and irony, precise dramaturgy and lively improvisation, virtuoso performances and effortless stage play. One wants to compare Ivan Popovski’s delicate and precise stage direction with orchestra conductor’s work. The new interpretation of Schumann and Schubert’s songs doesn’t just bring them closer: the surprising variations by Oleg Sinkin and Alexander Marchenko demonstrate the relevant contemporary sound of compositions that were written two centuries ago and have long become musical classics. The stage production was awarded the Grand Prix of the Ohrid Summer Festival in the Republic of Macedonia, and the prize of the 2nd National Festival Musical Heart of the Theater in the Best Instrumentation/Arrangement and Best Lighting Design categories.
