Mouissi, Sascha El; Fingerlos, Rafael

The wanderer motif is a central theme in German 19th-century romanticism. In this selection of songs, compiled by Rafael Fingerlos, the wanderer goes through various stages: From the desire to move into the wide world, full of curiosity and enthusiasm, to achieve freedom by leaving home. Foreign countries and foreign languages appear to the hiker on his journey. At some point the feeling of nostalgia for home and the desire to return mingle. Which home is the hiker looking for? An unfinished journey ends in peace, between strangers and home. Rafael Fingerlos is accompanied by pianist Sascha El Mouissi.
