Dear friends! Whilst we are slowly beginning to transition into what some call a “new normal”, our classical music world continues to suffer under the complete standstill and the many uncertainties around a reopening of public performances. Fortunately, there are now some efforts towards slowly performing again at several theaters and festivals. Let us all hope that this autumn can bring the full relaunch of live performances and concerts everywhere. Needless to say, this is a particularly challenging time for artists whose scheduled performances were simply wiped off the calendar, many of whom have suddenly been left without any financial income. State subsidies for artists have been discussed and announced by several governments - some more generous than others and others in turn so complicated to apply for that a number of artists have held back from even applying at all. Unfortunately, in view of the differing measures and restrictions from various governments we are all left quite powerless. While these restrictions are meant to protect our physical well-being, we must however also ensure that music and the arts - the food for our soul - remain alive as well. It is heartwarming to see the wonderfully creative efforts by so many artists in keeping music thriving through streaming! But we all know that the live, in-person audience experience as well as the artist’s own direct performance to an audience can never be replaced and that it is something that we all yearn for again. Today we would like to share this small video with you with clips from some of our dear artist friends. It is our brief, multinational message of encouragement to the many artists out there who are anxiously awaiting the end of this period so that they may again pursue what they love and do best - performing music – an essence and not a luxury! A huge THANK YOU to all who have participated in this video message!! We hope you will enjoy watching it and wish all of you to keep going and stay strong and positive! Even if it is hard at times, make the best of this difficult period. Sooner or later, this too shall pass! (well, better sooner than later…) ... See MoreSee Less

Having conquered all important European opera stages - from Bayreuth to Milan's La Scala, from the State Operas in Berlin and Vienna to Paris' Bastille - ANDREAS SCHAGER will be debuting as Siegfried in "Die Götterdämmerung" alongside Christine Goerke's Brünnhilde and conductor Philippe Jordan. He will also be performing the title role of "Siegfried" on May 2 and again Siegfried in "Götterdämmerung" on May 4.
Saw him in the Prom Goetterdammerung he was excellent
I didn't think the broadcast was very good...sorry...he was more in tune than the Brunnhilde who struggled with much of the upper register from the high G to high C...
Er hat kein differenziertes gefühlvolles singen....
Vorrei che la politica lasciasse in pace la musica e godermi la bella musica senza rumori molesti Anche Wagner e bella ciao ,vecchia musica dei villaggi ebrei
