1. live recording “TelePartY” – Tabea Wink – recorder

At the award winner concert of Youth Music Competition 2015 in Braunschweig, which took place in the Dornse in th Museum of Braunschweig on February 21, 2015 the opportunity arose the first public premiere of the commissioned composition “”TelePartY“”, composed for Tabea Wink – recorder inside the Projekt – “Impulse – Young Interpreters / New Music” of the German Musikrat.

This concert hall is not perfect for quadrophonic live electronic compositions and outside was a stormy weather, rumbling loudly around the building, but this beautiful document that gives some idea what a more than talented student Tabea Wink is, wants to be shared and communicated.

BR: Sehen statt Hören – dance meets Sign Language

4. October 2014

The dance theater production “Hexen GmbH” with the inclusive dance project tanzbar_bremen was in the last year a very moving, beautiful and fruitful experience. In particular, this applies to the exciting collaboration with the deaf sign language teacher and dancer Doris Geist. The Bavarian television had the “Hexen GmbH” visited and sent a TV report on 4 October 2014 ( available in the BR mediathek by clicking on the image below).


Eifel (D): Sound Installation “Sagenhaft” @ 1. Nicholas marktet Schleiden

Update: Unfortunately, the sound installation had to be canceled due to illness.

The sound installation “Sagenhaft” of the composer Dorothée Hahne is heard on 6th and 7th December as part of the first Schleidener Nicholas market. “Sagenhaft” consists primarily of a computer script that reproduces everything said after 3.33 seconds and thus stimulates reflections on transience and valency of words. In 2010 the sound installation have had its premiere in Bad Münstereifel. Recently it was realized at the Internationalen Tanzmesse NRW 2014 in Dusseldorf.

Vincent Lauzer: a true talent … performing commentari III | 28.02.2014 Musical Toronto

Vincent Lauzer

Vincent Lauzer | recorder

If you had heard Regina-based Artistic Director Simon Fryer announce the Women’s Musical Club of Toronto’s (WMCT) 117th concert season in 2014-2015, witnessed the enthralling performance by Montreal’s Vincent Lauzer, shared the experience with a packed Walter Hall, your faith in Toronto’s classical music scene would be doubly renewed.

The “Music in the Afternoon” series features an artful line-up of debuts by international artists, and some of Canada’s most promising up-and-coming performers.

Recorder music might not bring to mind excitement and nuance, but a listen to Vincent Lauzer—winner of the WMCT’s 2012 Career Development Award—would certainly open audiences up to some exquisite musical moments with one of the most understated instruments in western music.

The program featured works by Baroque composers Sammartini, J.S. Bach, Corelli and Vivaldi, which were rendered tastefully by the continuo ensemble with Mylène Bélanger on harpsichord, Chloe Meyeres and Tanya LaPerrière on baroque violin, Jacques-André Houle on baroque viola, and Mélisande Corriveau on baroque cello.

The ensemble was in perfect balance with the incredible nuances revealed to the deep listener. Everyone, including the ensemble, was enchanted with Lauzer’s winning personality.

The most exciting part of the concert was a selection of contemporary works written for solo recorder titled, “Minimal Music” and “Schlaflied für einen Kolibri (Lullaby for a hummingbird)” from a suite by composer Marcus Zahnhausen. In a style of music known for its deceptive simplicity, they provided a vehicle to draw out Lauzer’s breathtaking virtuosity. Playing from memory, Lauzer shined over the pieces’ densely packed lines, which were subtly shaped into a frenzy that conveyed the up-tempo work’s larger musical ideas.

The second half of the concert opened with “Meditation,” by Japanese composer Ryōhei Hirose. Lauzer played the work by invoking the sound of a Shakuhachi (Japanese flute), and then followed with the finale of the program, “Commentari III” by German composer Dorothée Hahne.

Perhaps the WMCT wasn’t the place you would expect to hear live electronics music, but it speaks greatly of its devotion to the standards set by those before us. By selecting Lauzer as their career development award winner, they demonstrate a commitment to paving the way towards a vision of the future. Lauzer is a true talent with a captivatingly delicate yet robust musicality.

There are already plans for a 2015 presentation of the award; the 10th since it was founded in 1990. Two additional runner-up prizes will be added, and the main prize will be increased from $15,000 to $20,000. If this concert was any indication, there is some impressive music making for us to look forward to from the WMCT in the seasons to come.
