doppelgänger

solo performance with accompanying voice

Simultaneous presence of singers' two voices and of a double-voiced singer. The Singer and the Doppelsänger appear to sing in a mutual consent. Appearence of a performing double is not a ghostly phenomenon that predicts ones death but clearly audible ultimate duet. Hence the song that is being sung is the last one - the swan song. And the lyriscs say - Only you are missing.

Based on Franz Schubert Der Doppelgänger from the Liederzyklus Schwanengesang, D 957.

Premiered at W brzask on the 12 / 08 / 2018, 5.00 a.m., at Muzeum Rzeźby im. Xawerego Dunikowskiego Królikarnia in Warsaw.

Concept, music, lyrics, performance - Barbara Kinga Majewska
