Denis Schmitz | Albaicín by Denis Schmitz | Open Strings Berlin

Last year during summer hemet with Denis Schmitz in Berlin to film our first video with a baritone guitar!
Denis' composition "Albaicín" refers to a district in Granada of the same name right in front of the magical Alhambra.

Not being able to travel there we found a way to recreate the magical night-time-feeling of sitting at the Mirador de San Nicolás and enjoying this enchanting set.

Nicolás Silva Apiolaza | Frédéric Chopin "Nocturne Op. 9, N° 2" | Open Strings Berlin

Every day, everywhere and throughout most of our history people profit and suffer because of male privilege.
During her lifetime the french author George Sand (1804-1876) broke with gender conformities and laid out tremendous groundwork for feminists, which is still relevant today when we look at issues like clothing, sexuality and independence.

One of George Sand’s partners was Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849), who, in the beginning, was not a fan of Sand’s strong and emancipated behaviour.
His growing affection and how they were introduced is the story of this video.
Besides developing the main concept, Nicolás Silva Apiolaza made a beautiful transcription of Chopin’s “Nocturne (Op. 9 No. 2)” and with the help of Buba Sababa, Aitana Parker and many other amazing friends we attempted to put the events of a 19th century Salon in Paris into a 21st century Bar in Berlin.

We hope you enjoy listening and watching, but even more we hope that it’ll make you think and realise how deeply rooted outdated ways of thinking still exist today.

It sure made us think.

Thanks to everyone involved!

Ilse Weber was killed on October 6, 1944 by the N***s.
During her time in Theresienstadt she wrote several songs and texts that are still known and played.
Johann Jacob Nissen and Tim Maas rearranged a whole cycle of those songs back to the original version of guitar and voice and just released the whole album.

We filmed this music video and interview last year, when they just finished recording the first piece: "Ich wandre durch Theresienstadt".
Audio recording by Patrick Dadaczynski

The interview was shot while we were walking on the historic ground of Anhalter Bahnhof, Berlin.
Thanks to everyone involved and we're very happy to finally share this very special project with you!

As you might have witnessed over the past few days we repeatedly tried to publish the full length video of ARTIS GuitarDuo playing BWV 992 by Johann Sebastian Bach.

In our three attempts the sound of almost the entire video was muted by Facebook and we had no other option than deleting the video again.

Anyway, it looks like we found a way around it and together with Naxos we're looking forward to making it work by tonight!

Yay. 😌

Jesse Flowers "World premiere! and (sort of) old music"

Buy your virtual ticket here and support Jesse Flowers and Stayin' Live: paypal.me/jesseflowersguitar
Audience-Hangout: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89725801531

This recital contrasts contemporary Australian composers with (one) old (and one sort of already getting old?!) English composers, and will feature a world premiere! Olivia Davies in Flow was commissioned by the Canberra International Music Festival, and will be performed for the very first time in this recital! It will be paired with some short and spooky pieces by Phillip Houghton from his Gothica. A set of John Dowland pieces then sets the tone for Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece Nocturnal.

Olivia Davies: in Flow

Phillip Houghton: Gothica

John Dowland: Fancys, Ayres, Galliards

Benjamin Britten: Nocturnal after John Dowland

United in Isolation - 'Die Gedanken sind frei'

Do we have to feel isolated during the lockdown?
How can we feel close emotional connection over distance?
Which medium is capable to transport emotion and togetherness through bits and bytes?

Big thanks for coming to my van (virtually)
