The Göttinger Symphonie Orchester just finished a short tour in Northern Germany and concerts in Bremen (the beautiful sounding hall “Die Glocke”), Wilhelmshaven, and Leer, playing for an enthusiastic audience. Our excellent soloist was Alexandre Tharaud in Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Concerto: A wonderful first collaboration of hopefully many more to come!

I am delighted and grateful to see the Debussy Poe Operas CD on the new longlist of the prestigious “Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik” (“German Record Critics’ Award”)!

I am delighted to announce the publication of the world premiere recording of Debussy’s Edgar Allan Poe-based opera “The Devil in the Bell Tower” together with “The Fall of the House Usher”, a perfect combination Debussy stipulated himself in a contract with the Metropolitan Opera New York. Robert Orledge is the music wizard who was able to complete both operas.
This beauty has just arrived at our office: Exciting repertoire with a great soloist! I am proud of everyone involved, soloist, the orchestra members, and the sound wizard-engineer Friedrich Rödding!
Tonight’s concert was a blast! The perfect timing: The start of my new series “Cultural Meetings, Perspective China” at Chinese New Year’s Eve, with works by Li Huanzhi, Lehár, Liu Tianhua, Bach…with the wonderful erhu soloists, Prof. Dong JinMing and his son Dong Shi Huili.
