Last minute-Recital

January 12, 2017

On Sunday January the 15th the church Gustav-Adolf-Gedächtniskirche, in Nuremberg, opens it’s doors, as a Vesperkirche, until February 26th. Open for anyone who are looking for a little company or for a cheap lunch. Except the pure social parts of the project a series of charity concerts are being offered within the period.

My colleague Ilker Arcayürek, a lied-specialist, was supposed to hold a recital on the opening but had to cancel yesterday since he is sick. I got asked if I’m prepared to jump in for him together with the Studienleiterin at Staatstheater Nürnberg, Rita Kaufmann – a fantastic lied-pianist. Last minute but who could possibly say no to such an honour?

We’ve decided on a programme with equal parts of Peterson-Berger, Schumann, Rangström and Mahler. I’ll definitely enjoy the possibility to sing lied, which happens way to seldom, in such considerate and appealing circumstances. If you are close by, do join us!
