On December 14, Wende Snijders will perform a showcase of 'Winterreise' at National Sawdust New York. 'Winterreise' is an adventure which tells a poetic story about loss, mortality, death, love and acceptance with the original texts by Wilhelm Müller, just as Schubert used, but with new music by Dutch composer Boudewijn Tarenskeen. Tarenskeen pushes the boundaries with his adaptation of this iconic song recital, and knowingly and elegantly breaks with convention. He challenges the audience to reconsider the traditions of the song recital with an open mind. The performers are Tarenskeen's muse Wende Snijders, a singer-songwriter who combines theater, cabaret, song and Sprechgesang, and pianist Gerard Bouwhuis. Entry will be based on capacity: first come, first served. RSVP here.
National Sawdust is an unparalleled, artist-led, non-profit venue for exploration and discovery. It is a place where emerging and established artists can share their music with serious music fans and casual listeners alike.
