Germany back and forth – Spannungen Festival in Heimbach

Since joining in on the 10-years anniversary concert with violinist Florian Donderer and cellist Tanja Tetzlaff at Sendesaal Bremen, I am now back home preparing for the Spannungen Festival in Heimbach.

This year at Spannungen will see many premieres for me. It will my first time doing Naturale by Luciano Berio for viola, percussion and voice with Elisabeth Kufferath on viola. As well as Run Chime for solo percussion and string quartet by Dave Maric with violinists Antje Weithaas and Florian Donderer, Volker Jacobsen on viola and Maximilian Hornung on cello.
Also, a first time for me playing Tre pezzi and Tre altri pezzi for clarinet and cimbalom by György Kurtág with clarinettist Sharon Kam.
At the end of the festival, I will play 8 duos by György Kurtág for violin and cimbalom with violinist Christian Tetzlaff.
And of course the late night party concert, children concerts and most importantly meeting up again with dear colleagues, friends and a fantastically devoted audience!
