20 Aug Erstes Konzert nach 172 Tagen!

Exactly 172 days ago, on March 2, I sang my last concert B.C. ( = before Corona), a St. Matthew Passion at the Musikverein Vienna. On August 20th, after a long forced break, the time had finally come and I was allowed to stand on stage again: in the world premiere of Johannes Kalitzke’s JEANNE D’ARC at the Carinthian Summer in Villach, my first concert P.C. ( =Post Corona – or rather C.C.= Cum Corona?) What an experience to finally be allowed to make music again with great musicians and in front of an audience!
