Literature and Music

What could be more beautiful than music? Literature and music. In this series, we explore the countless connections between the two arts together with our guests.

First-class actors present literary treasures. Our musicians play the appropriate works from the history of music to accompany them

The "Literature and Music" events are a collaboration with the Literaturhaus Zürich and take place every Sunday at 11.15 a.m. in the Kleine Tonhalle.

Also available as a Literature and Music subscription.
