album info

The Wortart Ensemble successfully found its place between the spheres of language and music. Since 2008, the vocal group has set poems of famous and lesser-known authors to music. Wortart received several national and international awards for their work, which also includes a collaboration with Nora Gomringer, winner of the Ingeborg-Bachmann-Prize, one of the most prestigious awards for literature in the German language. Wortart's new album "Home Sweet Home - Songs about arriving, leaving and lingering" comprises texts of poets of various origins and generations. Their arrangements tell stories about the longing for safety, the complexity of the term "home", about changing and leaving ones home as well as the loss of ones home country, and about starting off in an unknown country. All members of the vocal quartet (Lena Sundermeyer - soprano, Hannah Ginsburg - soprano, Erik Leuthäuser  tenor, Lars Ziegler  baritone) contributed compositions to the album and introduced their musical provenance. Hence, the created songs are very intimate, at times light or powerful and at the same time refined and touching.
