You can come visit me on Letterboxd to see what movies I watch and how I rate them. I pay special attention to the background music.
Anoush Seferian and I performed my piece "Wings" together live on german television. Already during the rehearsals she fascinated me with her talent. Anoush brought in her own variations and thus gave the work a new sparkle.
Anoush Seferian was born in France in 1991 and grew up in Syria. From 2009 to 2012, she studied violin with Prof. Alimoukhtar Babayev at the Damascus Conservatory of Music and French literature at the university there. In Damascus, she has already played in several orchestras, including the Syrian Philharmonic Orchestra, and performed solo concerts at the Opera House. In 2010, Anoush Seferian was accepted into the prestigious West-Eastern Divan Orchestra under Daniel Barenboim. In 2013, she was taught by Prof. Andreas Lehmann at the Hochschule für Musik Franz Liszt Weimar. Anoush Seferian is a recipient of the Germany Scholarship (2014 and 2015) and played as a substitute in the Jena Philharmonic Orchestra in 2015.
In May 2015 she played for the first time in the Louis Spohr Chamber Orchestra.
In 2016 she received the Playing for Peace Scholarship from Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music in USA and was invited there as an assistant in 2017.
In October 2017, Anoush Seferian completed a master's degree in Weimar with Prof. Andreas Hertamnn (concertmaster of the MDR Symphony Orchestra Leipzig). Meanwhile, she works as a teacher at the Max Reger Conservatory in Meiningen, among other places.
I had the wonderful honor to record an album together with Maria Luefing. For the album "Fallen" Maria lent me her talent on the violin. Whether in one voice or two voices. Maria always knew how our instruments harmonize with each other.
After many years of collaboration with renowned music libraries, Joachim Schreiber and Eric Volkert, founded the independent music publisher Polarstern
Music in Munich in 2015.
Through the label "4TVMusic" founded by Polarstern, my album "Fallen" was mastered and released. Thus, an album contract with 4TVMusic and BMG Production Music was created.
