Viatges. Konstantin Krimmel és el cantant revelació dels darrers anys, les seves aparicions en els diferents escenaris europeus no deixen ningú indiferent. El públic de la Schubertíada té la sort d’haver-lo descobert els primers, ja que forma part de les nostres programacions des de fa quatre anys. En el seu setè concert, Krimmel ens proposa, al costat del pianista brasiler Marcelo Amaral, un programa intens: les suggeridores Cançons de viatge del compositor britànic Ralph Vaughan Williams, la intensitat de les Cançons de l’arpista d'Hugo Wolf i una selecció de lieder de Schubert, que Krimmel ens il·luminarà amb el seu estil tan característic i personal.
