Klaus Maria Brandauer / Sebastian Knauer

»Eine Pilgerfahrt zu Beethoven«

On Tour with Wagner

When Klaus Maria Brandauer comes on stage, he is still Klaus Maria Brandauer – but not only him! He also throws himself with heart and soul into the character he is portraying, in this case Richard Wagner. In his mid-twenties Wagner wrote a story entitled »A Pilgimage to Beethoven«, in which he describes a trip to Vienna to meet his idol Beethoven. At the end of their wild discussions, he wins over the composer to a new kind of opera dramaturgy that – surprise surprise! – is very similar to the operas he was later to write. The amusing tale from Wagner's pen is garnished with short piano pieces by Beethoven, which Sebastian Knauer deftly weaves into the narrative.
