Ein schöner TV-Beitrag über das Konzert bei den Tagen der Barockmusik Schrobenhausen mit dem Elbipolis Barockorchester Hamburg! Und der Donaukurier berichtet:

"(…) das C-Dur-Konzert für Flöte und Orchester von Antonio Vivaldi konnte ähnlich in Bann schlagen. Wohl, weil es das einzige wirklich hochvirtuose Werk des Abends war. Und weil Elisabeth Champollion so hingebungsvoll die Piccoloflöte blies: ein souverän produziertes Trillertirilieren mit schier atemlosen Endloskaskaden und verblüffenden Zwitscher-Arien. Ein hinreißender, staunenerregender Abschluss des Konzerts und des Festivals im voll besetzten Saal." (Jesko Schulze-Reimpell)

Happy New Year


New Dutch Academy at State Opera, Ankara

The NDA opened the new year at the State Opera in Ankara, Turkey, in a festive performance opening the 2016 Dutch presidency of the EU. Soloists were Gudrun Sidonie Otto (soprano) and Elisabeth Champollion (recorder), with music by Dutch composers Hacquart, Van Wassenaer and De Fesch, and by Handel, Vivaldi and J.S. Bach. A special feature of the programme was music by Bach's brother, Johann Jacob Bach, who lived and worked in Turkey in the early 18th century.
