Greetings! I wish you all a wonderful time during the holidays and a fantastic New Year leading into a much better 2021.
Here is a video I recorded with the great brass quartet Tetra Brass in Munich a couple weeks ago and it’s the perfect music to bring this year to an end. It’s based on Bach’s choral “Es ist genug – It is enough.”
Here are some excerpts from the original text which pretty much describe the artists and many other people’s situation during this difficult time. I hope this gives everybody some hope. There is still music and creativity in this world.
Wie lang, wie lange muß ich sehnen? Wann ists genug?
How long, how long must I yearn? When is it enough?
In the New Year I am really looking forward to releasing “Pelicula” with my friend and colleague Gerd Baumann in Munich. We worked on this one for years and I am very excited about it. The album will be out in February/March on vinyl and as a digital download.
I am sure there are concerts coming again and there are many scheduled in 2021, but since all these dates in the first half of 2021 are uncertain, I will post them when we know for certain that they will happen in a new newsletter and on social media.
With Berta Epple we are doing an cultural advent calendar on Wednesday, December 23 at 19:00 German Time and 1pm EST. We will have an interview and show some great videos of music from our latest program and the Christmas program we have.
