Johannes Reichert & Holger Stamm (GER)
Can a countertenor and a rock guitarist be reduced to a common denominator? Yes, if they feel like stepping over their own musical boundaries. This was the case for Johannes Reichert and Holger Stamm, and “Melencholia”, a homage to melancholia, was the result. In the joint programme of renowned countertenor, Johannes Reichert, and experienced rock guitarist, Holger Stamm, songs by Renaissance composer, John Dowland, encounter music by John Lennon/Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and others. The selection of their songs could also be characterised as a meeting of pop music throughout the centuries, for in their time, Dowland’s songs fulfilled a similar role.
