Four years after their triumphant tour with Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch, Diana Damrau, Jonas Kaufmann and their long-time partner pianist Helmut Deutsch embark on a journey through Europe, interpreting love songs by the two preeminent romantic song composers: Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. In a concert tour full of stirring emotions, the two stars will sing of love in all its facets: dreaming and yearning, the happiness of fulfilment, disappointment and sacrifice. Schumann and Brahms wrote many of these songs with Robert’s wife Clara in mind, with whom Johannes fell in love when Robert was already ill. A tempestuous love affair that Johannes and Clara would transform into a lifelong friendship after Robert’s death. The songs themselves celebrate love, which for the Romantics was a magical force that marks the transition from youth to adulthood.

“[...]Damrau’s vocal delicacy, [is] able to open a phrase with a delicate crescendo, while often ending them with soft holds as if she were embracing the syllables to the fullest.”
