Wir freuen uns besonders auf den Liedwettbewerb Stuttgart 2020, weil …

… es wahrscheinlich die erste Gelegenheit seit Beginn der Coronakrise ist, dass ich die Möglichkeit habe, meine Lieblingslieder live zu singen. Ich freue mich sehr darauf. (Ana)

… es eine wertvolle Gelegenheit ist in einem tollen Saal zu spielen. (Megumi)

(Hey Liedlovers: Wanna know more – jump to the english version...)

Auf den Wettbewerb bereiten wir uns seit Anas Konzert in Hamburg vor, 

welches unser letzter Auftritt als Liedduo vor dem Coronaausbruch war.

 

Ein Wort, das meinen Duo-Partner/meine Duo-Partnerin auszeichnet:

Megumi über Ana: Kraft

Ana über Megumi: offenherzig

 

Unser Lieblingslied von Hugo Wolf ist Elfenlied,

weil Musik und Text so eng miteinander verbunden und magisch sind und das Spielen sehr berührend für uns als Künstler ist und immer viel Freude bereitet.

 

Der Wettbewerbs-Livestream ist toll, 

weil unsere Familien und Freunde, die nicht dabei sein können, die Möglichkeit bekommen, live zuzuschauen.

 

We are especially looking forward to the Liedwettbewerb Stuttgart 2020 because …

… it’s probably the very first time since Corona started that I will have the chance to sing my favourite „Lieder“ live. I’m very excited! (Ana)

… of the precious opportunity to play in that wonderful hall. (Megumi)

 

We have been preparing for the competition 

since Ana’s recital in Hamburg, where we got our last liedduo presentation before corona outcame.

 

A word that characterizes my duo partner:

Megumi about Ana: power

Ana about Megumi: open-hearted

 

Our favourite Hugo Wolf song is Elfenlied because the music and the text are so related and so magical and it’s very involving even for us as performers to play it and it’s always lots of fun.

 

The competition’s livestream is great because

our parents and friends who are unable to come get the chance to watch it live.
