A NEW WAY OF SINGING
“KLARHEIT UND NATÜRLICHE SCHÖNHEIT DER STIMME, OHNE VORDERGRÜNDIGES OPERNSOUND”
Penelope, Odysseus (Lautten Compagney & Taschenoper Lübeck)
Honestly, I have no idea where it comes from… My family is 100% made of non-musicians. I came home one day claiming to my parents that I wanted to learn piano. Did I hear something on the playground? Well, I have a vague souvenir of a little girl singing a scale and I guess it hypnotized me. I wanted to learn music! An that’s how I have been playing piano 10 years long before I even thought about singing. But piano was hard for me, it was so much work for so little result!! I had to find MY instrument. Singing came much more naturally : I had the musical background and finally I was able to express myself in a way that piano didn’t allow me to.
And from that moment on, I’ve never been able to do anything else of my life.
Some call it passion. Others call it a necessity. I call it obstinacy.
Because, believe me, in this job you will need it. A lot of it.
