2nd flute player in Concerto Copenhagen
Since 1990, I have been living as a flautist and music teacher in Copenhagen. I was born as the youngest of a family of 5 and have enjoyed a comfortable upbringing in a south German village near Nuremberg. Grandpa played in a string quartet with his friends, his wife was an accomplished pianist, and together they played symphonies and operas four-handed on the piano to practice the music before concerts. My father, a school teacher and local cantor, built a large, open house for his large family where everyone was welcome. It was filled with music, and held countless house concerts with family and friends. At age 13, I chanced upon a case containing an old wooden Böhm flute which I threw my heart into, and at the annual music events in the former East Germany, I later garnered my first symphony experience.
After high school, my plan was to start training as a music therapist, but to my own surprise, I enrolled myself as a flute student at the Conservatory in Nuremberg -- one of a whole series of coincidences that marked my life as a budding musician! When my professor insisted that Mozart's flute concertos could only be performed one way -- namely with large, continuous vibrato, if you eventually wanted to have a chance at an orchestral audition -- I switched to Peter Thalheimer who taught historical performance practice, and Harnoncourt‘s 'Musik als Klangrede' was heavily discussed. My first renaissance traverse flute (and my favorite instrument to this day!) induced my love of historic flutes, and I toured with the Berlin Lautten Compagney giving concerts and Commedia Dell'Arte performances through East Germany.
After completing a three-year flute study programme in Amsterdam, and with a soloist diploma in traverse in my pocket, fate led me to Copenhagen in 1990. From almost the very beginning, I have played in Concerto Copenhagen, first with Concerto Copenhagen‘s first violinist Andrew Manze, who was a great and contagious inspiration. Now, it is Lars Ulrik who, through every project, is able to expand my musical horizons, and, to this day, I feel great joy for being a part of this group of dedicated and amazing musicians. Nancy Hadden I will not neglect to mention as a teacher, colleague and great inspiration! Besides developing my flute playing in various ensembles, I'm a dedicated music teacher who tries to open the music universe for children and young people, and transmit the joy of being able to develop and express yourself on an instrument.
