The "Six Hölderlin Songs" (2020) by Chris Jarrett were composed for the 250th anniversary of the birth of the German poet Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843), but the global health crisis hindered the premiere. The composer Chris Jarrett and his singing and reciting colleague Orlando Schenk have construed a musical and poetical rendez-vous with Hölderlin which can be enjoyed in any year and on any occaision.
