Thursday, 23 May

The festival LIEDBasel (SongBasel), which will run this year from May 22-26, is a contemporary and interdisciplinary examination of the art form of song. It's not just about the intimacy of singing and piano—and not just about the past, because the interpreters are people who live in the present. The song is about life in a nutshell. It reflects everyday life in different centuries and different facets. It tells and sings about individuals trying to assert themselves in society. Unlike an aria, the song is the entire story, told in just a few minutes. That’s what makes the song so extraordinary and distinctive. The festival consists of six formats, including discussions, master classes, recitals, and more . These different starting points should inspire not only the performers, but also the audience. The individual events offer opportunities for exchange and reflection. Consult the website to peruse the whole program at
“LiedTotal—alle Lieder in 60 Minuten” will be the free opener on this Thursday evening, where singer and cabaret artist Fee Brembeck makes the impossible possible and presents the entire festival program in just one hour. Brembeck is a jack of all trades. She enchants the slam poetry scene and comedy stages with insights into the world as an opera singer—cheeky, eloquent, and mercilessly honest. She takes on the festival repertoire for a special kind of introduction to the works!
This 1-hour opening event is free.
