Taking the harp to the top

First prize in the federal competition »Jugend musiziert« 2017


As in the past, I participated again in this year’s big German musical competition »Jugend musiziert«, and after a successful regional and country competition in Spain, I reached the final round for the federal competition, which took place in Paderborn, Germany in June 2017. This time I completely focused on the harp and have reached my major goal: a first prize! I am moved, excited, and over the moon :)

Silence?


One could gain the impression as if things got a little quiet around me. The opposite: My life continues to be full of music! I have my hands full and pursue the dedication of my dream of becoming a musician and a composer. Next to school (which admittedly demands a lot of time, shortly before my high school diploma), I take weekly private lessons for piano, harp, drums, and guitar, as much as composition, harmony theory, and ear training. A full program so to speak, and I love it!

My first CD with compositions for the harp is currently being prepared. 12 pieces are composed and finalized and as soon as I have the time and space, I will record them in my studio. This is going to be mega exciting!

Olé! My new flamenco guitar!


With Antonio Bernal
www.antoniobernal.com

Since almost a year, I have also been learning to play the guitar and am moving through entirely new worlds of sound – from classical to modern. I am especially fascinated with flamenco, the traditional Spanish music of Andalusia. Together with the guitar maker Antonio Bernal from Sevilla, we designed a black matt flamenco guitar and he built if for us. It is the first of its kind and turned out to be a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, a feast for all senses. Gracias de todo corazón, Antonio!

Among the best of the best at
»Jugend musiziert«:

Federal Prize second place for the harp
and rating »very good« for the piano



I have worked intensively for many months and prepared myself optimally to the highest technical and musical standard in both instruments, with the help of my teachers.

Both auditions in front of the respective expert juries went really well. I am particularly proud of a Federal Prize second place for my harp play. But also the rating »very good« for my piano play (which equals a 4th prize), is a very big success for me! I would like to express my deep gratitude to everyone who has accompanied me in thoughts and with their good deeds!

OK – that's it for now with competitions and I've got more time again to focus on my own compositions and projects, which I am really looking forward to.


The federal competition in Braunschweig and Wolfenbüttel was the third and last round of the »Jugend musiziert 2014«. This is where 2,493 of the best gifted young performers from Germany met in various instrument categories (approx. 11% of the original 23,183 contestants). The level of quality was unbelievably high. When closing your eyes, you could not imagine that young people were playing the instruments.

I was one of the few participants who competed with two instruments and it was clear to me then, that I would not be able to compete against someone who had invested their entire energy into one single instrument over years. My situation was probably comparable with one of the heptathletes, who is trying to keep up with the top athletes in their individual disciplines ;-)))

Viva! Double award in Lisbon
at »Jugend musiziert«!


… playing the »New Blues«
by Deborah Henson-Conant

Lucky me! I was also awarded with a first prize for both of my entries with the piano and the harp in the competition »Jugend musiziert 2014« of Spain and Portugal at the German School Lisbon, in which all winners of the regional competitions of German-Spanish and German-Portuguese international schools had participated, and I can now travel to Germany in June for the federal competition.

It was thrilling, exciting, inspiring … and especially a very moving experience to live to see how music connects us all!

First prize twice
at »Jugend musiziert«!




At the regional music competition »Jugend musiziert 2014« at the ›Deutsche Schule Málaga‹ (Spain), I participated with my two main instruments, the piano and the harp and won a first prize for both instruments! Further, I reached the second phase of the competition, the nationwide competition at the ›Deutsche Schule Lissabon‹ (Portugal)!

I am so happy about this and am very excited what the future holds.

Wishing you all the very best!


Currently, I am working on new compositions, am preparing for the music competition »Jugend musiziert« in January 2014 and am looking forward to the Christmas holidays. Next to the piano, the harp and the theremin, I began to study more instruments: flute, cajon, drums and electric harp … my music room is about to burst at the seams ;-)


I would like to wish all my friends a very happy and special Christmas time, an exorbitant start into the New Year and many beautiful, musical moments!

Dance and choreography in London


For my new composition »Memories of the future«, I trained together with the well-known choreographer Les Child in London, who has already worked with the Pet Shop Boys, Robbie Williams or the Rolling Stones. To round it all off, we made a shooting for my music video in the London City Hall. It was simply mind-blowing – thank you London, thank you Les!
