The programme, originally set up for the literature series at the Vienna Konzerthaus, is based mainly on texts from the "Bleistiftgebiet", hardly legible manuscripts by wondering wanderer and writer of small letters Robert Walser. His work is still underestimated, but it tempts us to consider and think. fascinated with Walser's texts for many years, Bennent, together with Lechner, has now designed an evening of about one and a half hours - touching and relieving, for madness is so close at hand that we might just as well live with it.
Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
