Paradise: Origin or Utopia? A place of longing or a promise? Is it lost or do we carry it within us? – Sebastian Koch reads texts from world literature, from Aeschylus to Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Elfriede Jelinek and Stefan Zweig. Daniel Hope plays compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, Claude Debussy, Hanns Eisler and Maurice Ravel. Word and music enter into a paradisiacal-symbiotic relationship, e.g. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's and Ludwig van Beethoven's view of the mythical Prometheus.

"Powerful and colourful entries by Koch, Hope’s playing is elegiac or touching heavenly spheres." (Kölner Stadtanzeiger)
