Since the days of 19th century Germany, lieder (songs) were composed to be sung in a recital setting, typically with piano accompaniment and often set to poetry. Two hundred years later, not much has changed... Instead, they [Migoni and Mamola] favor adding visual stimulants to their performances, staging the productions the way they would an opera or play. By working with other interdisciplinary art forms onstage, they aim to create a total experience for the audience.
Das Blümelein is German for “a small blossom about to bloom.” But for Mamola and Migoni, it means a way to keep humanity’s stories alive through traditional classical music in untraditional settings.
