I'm looking forward to concerts with Les Dissonances, a production at the Frankfurt Opera, concerts at various festivals with my franz ensemble and of course many tours with my Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, which this year will again include the entire Beethoven Symphony Cycle.
franz ensemble is now represented by Andreas Richter Cultural Consulting Berlin
Since March 2022, the franz ensemble is officially represented by the artist agency Andreas Richter Cultural Consulting in Berlin. This is made possible, among other things, by the generous support of reboot culture.
In 2022 we are lookign forward to the premiere of a composition by Helena Winkelmann and concerts at the Bremen Music Festival, the Hamburg Harburg Concert Society, Deutschlandradio Cologne, the Murten Classics Festival Switzerland, the Gezeitenkonzerte Festival and the Bruhsaler Schlosskonzerte by the SWR.
