This crafted video of a Schumann Lied from Roxanna Walitzki captures many of our current confusions at this sacred season.

You see it here first.

Roxanna says: ‘Redd Walitzki and I filmed this video for Schumann’s “In der Fremde” while exploring an abandoned building in Pula, Croatia. Styled entirely from materials found on site, this is part of a larger eco-conscious project, in which we re-imagine discarded materials and locations for fashion shoots and unconventional performances, hoping to give them a new life and making them more than “trash.”’




  • You may say apples and oranges but I much prefer Tourel’s vocalism to that of the artist.

    The semi-nude figure appears to be pure clickbait.

  • Steven van Staden says:

    This reminds me of what Peter Katin complained about years ago.

  • John Borstlap says:

    The presentation is trash indeed – wrapped in PC language to appear trendy.

  • Christopher Storey says:

    Perhaps someone will give her singing lessons as a result, with a degree of concentration on intonation !
