Happy New Year with the Voice of the Whale…!

einladung_musikvereinYes it was exciting!  And hard. You cannot compare any concert or performance during the year with the intensity and atmosphere of the New Years Concert. I’m happy that everything went very well, and me and my fantastic colleague Karin BONELLI on the piccolo had a lot of fun on stage. Zubin Mehta was impressive inspiring and created one of the most elegant New Years Concerts of the last years
A few floors under the Golden Hall I’m  going to perform a very different concert in the Glass Hall at Musikverein next week. With my friends Martin Rummel (violoncello) and Christopher Hinterhuber (piano) we will recreate the sounds  “…from the beginning of time”. George Crumb “Vox Balaenae” (voice of the whale) is one of my favourite chamber music pieces. We also play Trios by Hummel and Mendelssohn, and I will start the second part with Luciano Berio’s “Sequenza 1”. More Info here.
