The pandemia of the year 2020 has affected almost all areas of life. The concert business as we know it is at a standstill. During the last months we were nevertheless able to work on the materials for three large-scale works by Enno Poppe, Ming Tsao and Rebecca Saunders, in addition to several smaller ones.
Despite everything, for us 2020 was also a year of opera: we worked on reduced versions of Verdi’s and Offenbach’s stage works as well as on a volume of the critical Cherubini edition (“Les Abencérages”). We were also able to complete the new edition of “Der Rosenkavalier“.

Last November, “Prozession” for large ensemble was premiered in Leipzig by the Ensemble Musikfabrik.
The Soprano Caroline Melzer and the Ensemble Modern played “Blut” (12 Lieder after poems by Else von Lasker-Schüler) in Amsterdam and later on in Cologne for the first time.
Both concerts were conducted by the composer and performed without audience.

For a commission by three major opera houses we prepared a new critical, yet practical edition of Richard Strauss’ most popular opera. To accomplish this first edition after more than hundred years, the materials as used and annotated by the Dresden, Munich and Berlin opera orchestras were evaluated and corrected. The complete materials have been produced in highest typesetting and offset printing quality and are available directly from us.
During the past months we have advised and supported eNote during the development of their upcoming app. We are proud to see that our contribution helped them to get closer to their goals. The whole issue is rather complex and hard to communicate adequately to the general public — Kate Connolly tried it for The Guardian.
