Playing the horn demands a high technical proficiency, self-confidence, and steady nerves. When I arrived in Germany at the age of 25, I was told: „You are too old to learn“. My refusal to believe this, sent me on a long search for ways to improve. It was especially through the study of the Alexander technique, that I gained tools to refine my performance. Awareness of breath and posture have been my steady partners in life, when performing on the horn as well as during my meditation practice or in daily life.
Today, I continue to learn, always in search of more ease. The ability to choose freely to alter the music during a performance, adds joy to every concert.
Endangered by the Corona crisis: A CD production with many first recordings of German romantic literature, recorded on original instruments, including a horn with an engraving from A.E. Fischer Bremen! The funds for the mastering and pressing of the CDs as well as the costs for the graphic design and printing of the booklet are still missing. The music from the collection Solo Buch für Waldhorn wants to live and touch listeners once more. You can support this project by clicking on the link.
