"The darkness does not let you talk to it": Wolfgang Rihm sets Heiner Müller to music. Reading and conversation

According to family and associates – those who knew and loved him – Heiner Müller was a rather cheerful, good-humored person in his private life. His plays, writings and poems, however, are overshadowed by black clouds. "Optimism," goes one of the most quoted Müller bon mots, "is only the lack of information." Wolfgang Rihm has set a number of Müller's texts to music, including the opera "Die Hamletmaschine" and the song cycle "Ende der Handschrift". 

Dr. Eleonore Büning will read from her biography of Rihm, published in March. Afterwards, Wolfgang Rihm will talk about his friendship with Heiner Müller.
