The idea for a recital of ''Modern Lied'' came about over breakfast following the first concert Sun and Schulze performed together. Realizing that they enjoy the same things, Schulze said: ''Our next program should be harder. It should be the hardest program ever. We should put some of the greatest contemporary masterpieces of Lied in one program should be harder. It should be the hardest program ever. We should put some of the greatest contemporary masterpieces of Lied in one program. It should be just insanely beautiful and hard and most of all insanely good. No old stuff included.'' This recital is the result of that idea. The earliest work is Holliger's beautiful cycle on Morgenstern texts. It forms a bridge from traditional lieder to the modern. The Morgenstern Lieder have a completely different sense of harmony, very soft, somewhere between Debussy, Berg and Ravel.
