Current musical long-term projects in Europe include the ongoing recording of Bach’s entire vocal oeuvre in sound and vision by the Swiss Bach-Foundation.
At the same time Ingo maintains a notable career as a literary scholar. After studying German philology he graduated with a PhD in the history of germanophone literature from the University of Freiburg, where he has been researching and lecturing on the interdisciplinary field of literature, music and aesthetics. Subsequent to his award-winning monograph on Alban Berg’s opera dramaturgy he became a fellowship-holder of the “Thyssen Foundation” to undertake a long-term research project on the aesthetics of Heinrich Heine’s poetry and Robert Schumann’s associated settings. The two-volume monograph will appear in 2020.
