Naxos Recording with Tianwa Yang in Ludwigshafen

We recorded three of Wolfgang Rihm’s challenging yet impressive works for violin and orchestra for Naxos: The incredible soloist, Tianwa Yang, the excellent Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, the recording engineer (Tonmeister) Roland Kistner, sharp-eared, yet full of humor, and the master of ceremonies, Johannes Kernmayer: A great team effort!

Postscript: Mahler 3 in Göttingen, March 2017

It was a special occasion: Mahler’s all-encompassing Symphony No. 3 in the Stadthalle Göttingen, with the Göttinger Knabenchor and both (!) choirs of the two major churches in town together: A first! Cécile Van de Sant was the touching soloist. But this work touched us all, musicians and audience.

Postscript: Aalborg February 2017

My first time in Danmark! What a nice experience to work with the Aalborg Symphony in their gorgeous new hall!

Postscript: Jenaer Philharmoniker October 2016

I had the pleasure to work with the excellent Jena Philharmonic, with the rather complex Symphony No. 7 by Waldemar von Baußnern, and the impressive soloist Tobias Feldmann. With my history of performances of Max Reger, of course I had to visit his villa where he last lived.
