Concert

With not one singing lesson I was asked to do my first “real” concert at the age of seventeen in our church in Tuttlingen: a mass of Franz Schubert. Sacred music was a revelation for me and still brings me deep satisfaction when I perform it.
The fascination lies especially in the encounter with many different orchestras and conductors. To understand for example why an orchestra is well-known for its fabulous interpretation of Mozart or Strauss I needed lots of music-making and experience.
The moment when it feels like dancing on a wave, the singing becomes bright and effortless and I know that the orchestra has understood the “tone” of the composer - the music has arrived in our collective musical core and from there goes out to the world increased by the devotion of each musician.
For me the Baroque ensembles embody these abilities to the uttermost. When I was auditioning for Ton Koopman years ago I had the opportunity to listen to his concert with the Amsterdam Baroque orchestra in the evening.I was speechless watching each and every musician embracing his instrument with vigour and care at the same time. They were sitting on the edge of the chair, their whole being present, playing full of joy and meaning - that was contageously inspiring!
