Program note:
French Poet Laure Gauthier specially wrote for this piece a poem inspired by the last words of Maria Stuart “Nun hab’ ich nichts mehr“ [Now, I’m left with nothing] in the eponymous drama by Friedrich Schiller. A piece on the acceptance of death and frailty, the loss of the Schillerian Sublime, the breath.

Nun hab ich nichts mehr, Susanne Leitz-Lorey, Soprano; Ensemble Ascolta, 5 Febr. 2017, Festival Eclat, Stuttgart, Germany.
