Crowdfunding finished
Dear crowd, with your support I would like to realize my first CD. During the past one and a half years, that painful period without live concerts, I was able as a musician, to focus on a long-desired project: to conceive and work on a bass-clarinet-CD. With pieces ranging from Bach through to contemporary music it will reflect the great variety of tone-colours and expressivity of this marvellous instrument. Please help us to pre-finance this project through your support!

What is this project all about?

After rehearsing intensively alone and together with my duo partner Didier Jacquin [døbas] and with the string-quartet of the notabu ensemble, we are now ready to go. Studio and recording engineer are in standby, the recording can start.
We are going to record solo pieces for bass-clarinet (arrangements of Bach`s string solos and modern music), pieces for bass-clarinet duo (baroque and modern) as well as pieces for bass-clarinet and string-quartet.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

The aim is to have a finished album in spring 2022.
The project is for people who are crazy about bass-clarinet music and those who would like to become such.

Why would you support this project?

1. I´m firmly convinced that there is far to little bass-clarinet music in this world!

2. Crowdfunding is the ideal platform for free-lance musicians without a record label to accomplish a recording project. This is why every contribution is very welcome and essential for the success of the project.

3. There´s no risk for you: if the financial goal of the campaign is not reached (hopefully it will be), the money will be refunded to you in full.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

If the campaign goal is reached, the money will be used for the musicians` and sound engineer`s fees, for photos, booklet layout and pressing the CD.

Who are the people behind the project?

I am a passionate bass-clarinettist!
But how did I get there?
I studied clarinet at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz in Cologne with Prof. Ralph Manno. Back then, already, my first encounter with the bass-clarinet took place...and I fell in love immediately!
Different orchestral experiences, a bass-clarinet solo part in a musical production, lots and lots of contemporary music and different pedagogical stages later, I am today an ardent music teacher (music-school of Mönchengladbach / University of Cologne) and free-lance (bass-)clarinettist.
