Dear English speaking friends of my musical activities,
After a one and a half year silence I warmly welcome you here again, at my completely renewed website.
It mainly had to be adapted to my new double life as musician and film artist.
While I did my full time job of singing, piano playing, lied recitals with introduction, investigation, two CD productions, organization, promotion and piano lessons, I from 2008 discovered the world of the computer and film production and produced many music videos and commissioned films - "on the side", during the evenings and nights! There was no time left for recovery, a burnout in 2011 the natural consequence. Since then musician and film artist do no longer work simultaneously.
The musician gets active, as soon as an attractive opportunity occurs: i. e. a beautiful sounding piano with sensitive touch,
good acoustics for singing, pleasant location. For concerts: organization available and a gage possibly higher than the expenses.
In December 2012 I could make recordings at a beautiful sounding American Steinway from 1905, using my professionnel DSD equipment. The recently published cheerful Haydn lied is born here. Haydn Recording (on YouTube)
At the beginning of 2013 the film artist extensively tested three film cameras, bought one of them and in March used it for shootings in Venice. The first film from that material, "Richard Wagner in Venice", was published at his 200th anniversary in Mai 2013. For the first time I use an off-speaker who reads Wagner's and Cosima's texts, and I am glad to have found Heinz Stolze (Link to his Website) for that. The musician part of me contributed two excerpts of Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder as soundtrack. Wagner Venice Film (on YouTube)
I plan at least one more Venice film, and various other film projects - I have much more film ideas than I can realize!
Especially since computer problems, archiving and saving of the extensive visual material and technical innovations always hold back, an assistent would be very helpful! Now film lamps have to be bought, as they will also be necessary at my next commissioned work.
Fortunately the film artist works hand in hand with the musician and bit by bit visualizes the music recordings of the stock. Thus more music video publications will come.
Now I rather hope that you enjoy my new website, my music and videos! One more thing: Texts cannot be simply posted here, they have to be inserted into the website code. Therefore: if I do not write anything here for a longer time, please look at my Facebook page .
Greetings from Berlin,
