Interview with the "taz"
September 23, 2023
Three days before the debut concert of the Isabella-Leonarda-Project Pone spes in planctu amaro, Germany's leading independent-progressive newspaper taz has published an interview with Julie Comparini by Benno Schirrmeister:
Julie Comparini über Barockkomponistin Isabella Leonarda
It seems to be in German only, but if you can read it, please do! Note that the current headline describes a common theme in Leonarda's texts and not my personal worldview. (The original headline, also describing Leonarda's texts, was "The amount of masochistic indulgence is truly remarkable", which I guess was too risqué.)
The debut concert of "Pone spes in planctu amaro" will take place on Saturday, September 23 in the Sendesaal Bremen statt. You can find more information and reserve tickets here.
