Yesterday, I, along with my colleagues Simone and Matias, had a blast recording Ligeti’s Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures at the Saarländischer Rundfunk in Saarbrücken, Germany!

Neus and I won a prize!

CF & NEC in Barcelona

This weekend, Neus and I won third prize in the Karlsruher Wettbewerb für die Interpretation zeitgenössischer Musik 2014 (Karlsruhe Competition for the Interpretation of Contemporary Music 2014).  We are thrilled!  We performed Helmut Lachenmann’s Got Lost and songs 1-3 from Wolfgang Rihm’s Opus 1 song collection.  Can’t wait to perform in the Zeitgenuss Festival in Karlsruhe next year!
