How does art stay alive? By reading, listening and listening over and over again. By making words that were written a long time ago resonate within us. And it is particularly exhilarating when art continues itself. When past works become new new. In this respect, it is a wonderfully moving event, as the Hamburg singer-songwriter duo Fjarill Nonne set poems by Nelly Sachs and Pär Lagerkvist to music. Her ninth album “Poësi” removed deeply sad and dreamlike lyric poetry with its very own multi-layered soundscape between folk, pop, jazz and classical music. The Swedish singer and pianist Aino Löwenmark and the South African violinist Hanmari Spiegel artfully transform between the past and the present until an absolutely timeless magic is heard. Just poetry.
