Reading from “The World Was Full of Aunts” and “Old Livonian Idylls” by Siegfried von Vegesack
Piano music by Woldemar Sacks, Nicolai von Wilm and Olga von Radecki

Siegfried von Vegesack (1888-1974) is one of the greats of Baltic German literature, who at the same time was an early advocate of understanding between Germans and Latvians. His aunt stories are warm-hearted and humorous portraits of kind and courageous women, at the same time pictures of rural life in Latvia shortly before 1900. This is accompanied by German-Baltic piano music from exactly that time: intimate, sensitive, with wit.
