No cloth trade without wool, no song without words. If today the statue of Jacob van Artevelde still points towards the sheep of England, it would not be out of place for the busts of German composers from the early Romantic period to nod towards the birthplace of Heinrich Heine. After all, in his younger years, this poet mainly dealt in sensitive verses, which turned out to be the ideal raw material for a song repertoire that is still very dear to many of us. So there is plenty of choice for bass-baritone Werner Van Mechelen and pianist Sylvie Decramer. Great names such as Schubert, Mendelssohn and Schumann are joined by the versatile Clara Schumann, née Clara Wieck.
