Literature & Music

Music serves to accompany stories and as a leitmotif in novels. Conversely, sagas, poems and stories have always inspired composers – there are innumerable links between literature and music.

In our Literature & Music series, we and our guests explore these connections with relish. Discover literary and musical pearls and how they relate to each other.

The Literature & Music series takes place in the Kleine Tonhalle on Sundays at 11.15 a.m.
