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 and actresses present literary treasures. Our musicians play matching works from the history of music

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

Also available as a subscription to Literature and Music
