In the beginning of this year I had the chance to be a part of a project of a befriended band – Xusha. Xenia, the singer, is of Russian descent and so the idea was to combine their original music with musical quotes by Tschaikowski. To achieve this needed sound the great Young Orchestra Hamburg was invited to join us. A long rehearsal weekend in a youth hostel, two more rehearsals and off we went on stage for the concert and the dvd-production. A great project, indeed, with diverse music which I was happy to be a part of!
