My next CD production is the dream of a journey through Berlin's palaces and concert halls during the 18th century. The Sensitive Style and the ideas of the Age of Enlightenment inspired all the Prussian composers, and the fashionable dark colour of the viola had a prominent role in chamber music. A great number of these musical treasures haven't been played for three centuries and are just waiting for their come-back!
I received an offer for a CD production from a label. The label will take over the cost of the CD production and the distribution, but I have to cover all costs for the recording, the promotion and the booklet.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
I want to make this wonderful baroque viola repertoire accessible to a broad audience, including the young generations.
Why would you support this project?
With your support, a great number of works from the 18th century written for viola will be recorded for the first time, making them accessible to a big audience.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
With crowdfunding I can cover the costs for the CD production: sound engineer (editing and mastering), renting a recording location, travel expenses for the musicians, a booklet and the following press work.
Who are the people behind the project?
I will play and work at this project with Anna Kaiser ( baroque violin), Johannes Berger (baroque cello) and Edoardo Valorz (harpsichord).
