Bringing A New Divan to a close, Waltraud Meier, Dorothea Röschmann, and Michael Volle, together with Daniel Barenboim and members of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, present musical echoes of Goethe’s West-östlicher Divan. They will perform songs by Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, and Hugo Wolf, as well as the world premiere of a new Goethe setting by Guillem Palomar, composition student at the Barenboim-Said Akademie. The program is completed by Brahms’s first String Sextet.
