The two special women had an artistic meeting at the Akademie der Künste, the 17 of November. When I first saw the announcement of the events, I thought it will be a duo with the laureate for the Nobel Price for Literature talking with the musical background. It was not. First, Herta Müller made an introduction reading from her writings and explaining the Romanian popular poetry sung by Weigl, that she translated into German. After, Sanda Weigl offered a regal of special music, with selected instrumental choice of traditional Romanian songs interpreted by Japanese artists. And you don't need a crash course in Romanian for feeling the music, you just have to open your heart.
Here is an example of one of the songs included in Weigl's repertoire.
