New facae


We are pleased to welcome Katrin Krauß as a new member of Flautando Köln.

Katrin Krauß

Katrin, who has been playing with us over the last ten years whenever one of us had a baby, was always an enthusiastic enhancement to the group. Now she will permanently take over from Katharina Hess, who has decided to withdraw from concert life in order to have more time for her family and educational projects.

We look back gratefully on 25 wonderfully fulfilling years spent with Katharina !

At the same time we are looking forward to the coming years with Katrin, to new ideas, creative and inspiring rehearsals, exciting concerts ....

After the transition phase, in which both Katharina and Katrin will be working with us, the official handing over of the baton’ will take place at our jubilee concert, 25 YEARS OF FLAUTANDO KÖLN, in 2015. The concert takes place on June 7, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. in the broadcasting station WDR, Funkhaus am Wallraffplatz in Cologne.

For this production, our newest instruments, subbass and grandbass by Küng, came to use for the first time.

Bei dieser Produktion kamen auch unsere neuesten Instrumente von denen wir sehr begeistert sind, Subbass und Großbass der Firma Küng, erstmalig zum Einsatz.

This time, our sympathetic and very competent co-players are Albrecht Maurer, violin and gothic fiddle, Torsten Müller, percussion and Tilman Schmidt, double bass.

Albrecht lead us further on the way of improvisation. His tracks, which are challenging through their free improvisation for solo and also for ensemble, are "Neuland" (unknown territory) and joy for us.
