Posted by on 15:11 in 2015 | 0 comments

The Max-Weber-Programm, that supports over 1.900 students in Bavaria, celebrated its 10-year jubilee at the Technischen Universität Munich on June 13, 2015.

On the occasion of this jubilee, Anna Fichtl and myself were invited to contribute to the Max-Weber-Festival, singing a program of duets and several arias – what a wonderful summer evening with good music! Thanks to the hosts and to our great pianist Suo Mao!

In honour of Lorin Maazel

Posted by on 19:02 in 2014, News | 0 comments

Even though I was a little ten-year-old girl, it was a great honour and pleasure for me to sing under the conduction of Maestro Maazel in the year 2000.

Under his conduction and with singer Andrea Bocelli it was my very first television appearance in German ARD.

Lorin Maazel was an inspiring man who leaves impressive marks in the classical music scene of the 21st century. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to work with him.

Inspiration – Yue-Opera

Posted by on 16:47 in 2014, News | 0 comments

The Yue-Opera – after the Beijing Opera the second-largest Chinese opera genre in the mainland China – was developed in the city of Shengzhou in the southern province of Zhejiang. In addition to the use of the Zhejiang’ province dialect, the opera genre is characterised by the fact that all roles are played and sung by women. The music is very mellow and gentle but at the same time full of emotions.

I was allowed to listen to the Nanjing Yue-Opera Ensemble, which was founded 1956 and is the most famous opera ensemble for this Chinese genre today. The ensemble stopped in Munich during its Europe-tour and presented some examples of the Yue-Opera-repertoire.

Here I learned that the opera “The Butterfly Lovers” was written especially for an international audience and belongs to the official cultural heritage of China since 2006.

The elaborate costumes with vibrant colors and beautiful embroidery as well as the shoes are an absolute highlight of this opera genre. The make-up of each lady is a work of art and the impressive hairstyles, jewelry and creative headgear are the “cherries on top”.

The four-member ensemble – playing traditional Chinese instruments – led though a program of traditional music, Chinese folk songs and the various styles of Yue-Opera. The Bamboo-flute, the pipa (Chinese lute with four strings), the Gaohu (Chinese violin with one string) and the Zheng (similar to a zither instrument) generate the distinctive mystic sound of this culture; in a few seconds you have the feeling of being in the South of China.

I am thrilled by this culture!
