My two wonderful teachers Evelyn Tubb and Anthony Rooley (Basel) will be giving a workshop for my own students and everyone interested from the University Mozarteum: on 20 and 21 January 2018. I am so happy that we could make this course work, because I have learned so incredibly much with them - about music and about human(itie)s ...
Welcome everyone! In the morning there'll be a lecture from 10 to 11 each day, after that individual teaching.

As of the end of september, I regularly teach workshops at the Conservatoire and the Académie Supérieure de Musique at Strasbourg. Together with young singers I explore the wide field that is "Early Music". The first encounters have been enormously enriching, exciting, moving and also funny! Now I finally have an "official" excuse for regular visits to the Confiserie Christian, which happens to be just around the corner from the Conservatoire!

This summer I'm drawn to the south: I'll be teaching in Rasteau in Southern France - together with my wonderful collegues Markus Hünninger and Paolo Pandolofo. We start the course with a teachers' concert on August 5th.
I am looking forward to meeting a lot of know and unknown faces, who'll accompagny me to this paradisiac, calm place in the middle of vineyards and wonderful music. Inspiration almost "automatically included".

On 26 August 2016, my new solo recording: Leonardo Leo, Sacred Works - will finally be released on Deutsche Harmonia Mundi!
I am very happy about this new disc, which I had the pleasure to record with "my" ensemble &cetera. My wonderful collegues:

Peter Barczi, violin
Eva Borhi, violin
Matthieu Camilleri, Viola
Bernadette Köbele, Violoncello
Julian Behr, theorbo
Markus Hünninger, harpsichord, organ

The CD unites two very different Salve Regina compositions by Leonardo Leo, and there are even two world premiere recordings: The Prodigal Son, and one of the Good Friday Lamentations. And of course there is wonderful instrumental music - by Leonardo Leo himself and by his great rival Franceso Durante. I am very much looking forward!

Not yet sure what to do this summer? Rather one cool week of singing in the mountains than yet another week of  beach, bikini and martini? Then quickly sign up!!!

Lately it seems to me that all the bad news in the world just becomes worse and worse - I sometimes feel completely destroyed by it all.

What simple joy it is on the contrary to be visited - just like that - by ten little ducklings and their proud "Mama" - this morning right in front of my door!

I am pleased to announce that the my CD 'Dialoghi a voce sola' has arrived.

We have been inundated with praise and positive comments (see below) and were even nominated for the 'Deutschen Schallplattenpreis' (German Recording Prize), much to the excitement of all concerned.

The picture to the left was drawn by the Berlin based artist and musician, Adrian Rovatkay. He drew this for me as a fantastical illustration of Claudio Merula's "Quando gli uccelli portaranno i zoccoli", which can be heard on the CD.

To produce a CD nowadays, demands a huge amount of financial investment, therefore we are delighted by each and every sale ... so "support the artist" and buy a copy today ... or if you already have one maybe you would even like a second!




I am happy to let you know the 'Dialoghi' CD is currently at the printing press and the predicted release date will be October 17th 2014. So many thoughts and ideas have gone into this project, my first 'self-produced' CD, that I am very much looking forward to the results.
It has become extremely expensive to produce a CD, therefore I would be very grateful to anyone out there who would like to follow the motto 'support an artist' and order a copy directly from my homepage
