 Very late in my career did I understand how rich the cosmos of Lied is and that just like opera, it tells us stories, stories to be experienced only through the voice.
Together with Jendrik Springer I started off as a Duo in 2002. We recorded the CD "Goethe -  das Ewig Weibliche".
With Matthias Lademann we created the first CD of the DIMENSIONS-trilogy called "World" (2017) and Camillo Radicke will play the second one then named "Otherworld" (2018)

In the year 2006 the label Harmonia Mundi offered me to join in as soprano for the Brahms Liebeslieder Walzer recording for vocal quartet and piano for four hands.
The days with my collegues together in the studio were of such friskiness and joy that we immediately felt that this music needs more than just a CD.
Our agent managed the rather impossible task of bringing six independent artists together for around twenty performances!
The Brahms walzes, performed in the Brahms year 2008 were followed by the Spanish quartets by Robert Schumann in the Schumann year 2010 and Schubert in 2013.
And there is no end of ideas and plans.....
