As its contribution to Leipzig Liest 2011 the Grassi Leipzig Musical Instruments Museum hosts a reading with music featuring Triumful poparuolei by Romanian poet Ioana Ieronim.
Or better featuring the German translation of Triumful poparuolei by Romanian poet Ioana Ieronim : “Brückengasse ohne Ufer” translated by Dagmar Dusil.
Brückengasse ohne Ufer/Triumful poparuolei is a powerful, poetic testament to the memory – and we use the word deliberately – of the former Saxon communities in the Transylvania region of Romania lovingly crafted by one who knows.
Ioana Ieronim was born in the former Rosenau – the modern Râşnov – a town which before the outbreak of World War II was home to some 1900 Saxon. And has now less than 200.
For the reading in the Musical Instruments Museum translator Dagmar Dusil will be accompanied on the piano by Peter Szaunig
