‘Lascia ch’io pianga’ – Felix Klieser releases new trade single from upcoming album ‘Beyond Words
Horn player Felix Klieser focuses on the ideas that arise in the mind's eye when listening to music, on the emotions that the music triggers. For Beyond Words, he has selected various arias by Bach, Vivaldi, Handel and Gluck and narrated each of the very different, self-contained musical worlds in an individual way.
In terms of content, the stories the arias tell could not be more different. They deal with praise and price, cruel fate and lost freedom. Problems that already existed when the works were written and are still relevant today. 'When we play music that is very old, we communicate with means of expression that people had before there were smartphones, airplanes, cars - and yet the music was about the same things.' That seems to be something that moves us today as well, and I find that fascinating.'
The new single 'Lascia ch'io pianga' from the album 'Beyond Words' is now available on all streaming and download platforms.
The full album will be released on CD by Berlin Classics on February 19, 2021 and is available for pre-order now.
