A 1st Birthday and the Wieskirch Canvas

I am happy to say that is one year old!
Here is a big thank you to everyone out there. You have all been so supportive and its been a real treat all along. It was extraordinary to receive so much feedback from all across the globe.

Art is Style! What we do now as classically trained artists has become more important than ever. It has become accessible to audiences across the board. We have broken all kinds of boundaries, we are free to experiment, free to produce and create.
This is a great time. Music and Opera are like living paintings. They allow us to see the past and create a new future. And we can all be part! We are free to listen, to watch, to mingle, to decide, to judge, to criticise, to indulge and to be inspired. We are the Art, we are the Opera.

I celebrated on the weekend. Together with fine young musicians we performed in one of Europe's most beautiful Baroque Churches, the 'Wieskirche' near Munich. The programme included Bach and Handel and finished with Handel's 'Why do the Nations' from the Messiah. There is nothing quite like making Baroque music within a true Baroque setting. It's like performing within one of these ancient canvases. And when we step out, we have created a new part to our world.

Friends, this is our time!
