In großer Sehnsucht

by Klas Torstensson



The five songs that form the song cycle In großer Sehnsucht present portraits of as many women; women who - each in her own personal way, each in her own social context - played an important role in history.


In großer Sehnsucht uses text fragments collected from personal diaries (Frida Kahlo), letters from prison or a lunatic asylum (Rosa Luxemburg and Camille Claudel, respectively), speeches given in her defence and poems written in exile (Louise Michel), and a pastoral drama - favola pastorale - (Cristina di Svezia, alleged to be the literary collaborator of the Italian poet and dramatist Alessandro Guidi).
