Im wunderschönen Monat Mai
Katja Herbers – vocalist/actress
Reinbert de Leeuw – piano
Im wunderschönen Monat Mai is Reinbert de Leeuw’s Edison-award winning music-theatrical take on the art songs of Schumann and Schubert. Actress Katja Herbers plays the lead, and de Leeuw himself is at the piano. He arranged these famous romantic lieder for voice, piano and ensemble, creating an idiosyncratic and vulnerable but wonderous song cycle. Katja Herbers is both expressive and moving in her double role as singer and actress.
