djÂse in Delémont and Zürich and on SRF 1
What a nice project! Written for Röseligarte extended by our Cellist Jacques Bouduban, with Adi Blum, Lucien Dubuis and my humble self, enriched by an Alphorn and a 16-piece choir. Songs in the pâtois of the Jura region, we performed in the Cultural Centre of Delémont and Tonhalle Maag in Zürich. More to come!

Corona – NoorderHeim
… all concerts are cancelled …
maybe some are not… we don’t know yet.
Difficult times for the arts, for performers, theaters, concert halls, museums, for the audience.
In these days, where everything seems so unsure, Saskia van der Heuvel and her team and I have started an initiative in Amsterdam Noord. We organise little “musical encounters” in empty café’s, concert places and churches, film them and put them online. Find us on facebook – we’re called Noorderheim.
Here’s a little taste:
Neuland – première
I asked musicians who come from another musical background but have lived in Switzerland for many years to arrange Swiss Folk Songs with me and my Röseligarte crew. The result was so nice! Premiered on Stubete am See 2018, Tonhalle Zürich.
