    The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam as translated into English by Edward Fitzgerald is one of our best-loved books of poetry - and for good reason. Cynical, self-deprecating, witty, mystical, in love with wine and beauty while aware of life and death, Omar's poems put many thoughts we have all had into words we can all enjoy.

    Johann Wolfgang von Goethe ließ sich in seinen späteren Jahren von der persischen Dichtkunst beflügeln. Besonders angetan war er von Hafis, den er gar seinen "Zwilling im Geiste" nannte. Dessen anmutige Verse besangen das Leben, die göttlich-spirituelle Hingebung und die Lust der Liebe und des Weines. Dieses Hörbuch stellt ausgewählte Gedichte aus Goethes West-östlichem Divan atmosphärisch ihren Inspirationen aus dem Alten Persien gegenüber. Die Weltmusik-Band Quadro Nuevo tourte häufig im Orient, dessen Farben und Düfte in die Töne flossen.
