Recorder and great violin

Roots
I was born and raised in Heidelberg. I have been at home in Basel since 2010.

Study
After a multifaceted, musical childhood, I came to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis at a very young age. Here I specialized in the performance and mediation of early music (including a semester abroad in Stockholm).

Professional
My music life looks a little different every day. The permanent components include: ReRenaissance, my recorder students, concerts/recordings at home and abroad, finding new old repertoire, rehearsals with Renaissance and Baroque ensembles, practicing, teaching at various conservatories (Basel, Graz, Cologne, Zurich).

Why
For me it is not a past choice, but a daily choice for music as art, science and craft. Who chooses whom in the process?

Elective Affinities
Right now I’m actually reading Goethe’s Wahlverwandschaften and enjoying narrative art of all kinds. Otherwise, I have a strange talent for finding four-leaf clovers. And I especially like to eat artichokes. 😉

Something else
I prefer to walk and have a few favorite (not only musical) Basel places. These include: The Haus zum Hohen Dolder, the Minster cloister, an old tree near the water tower, the Lohr-Wenzinger Studio and the chancel of the Barfüsserkirche.
