Written Life

What makes a good biography? For the 3 hour radio show 'Lange Nacht' on Deutschlandfunk Kultur, the recordings were made in the studio of PARRY AUDIO.

"How it came to this, why biography had to fight for its reputation for so long, what problems it raises, what its detractors and its defenders have to say - these are the topics of the first hour of our "Long Night of Biography".

In the second hour we turn to some biographical projects: about the actress Ingrid Bergman, the writer Albert Camus and about the Nazi armaments minister Albert Speer. We talk to the biographers and learn about their motivations, but also about the obstacles and frustrations that inevitably come with researching someone else's life.

Finally, the third hour focuses on the extremely involved research that resulted in the three-volume biography of Kafka by Reiner Stach, the author of this program - a standard work that has since been translated into numerous languages. Wiebke Porombka talks with Stach."

Wielandgut Oßmannstedt

When Duchess Anna Amalia was looking for an intellectual conversation partner for her teenage son Carl August, her choice fell on the most popular writer in Germany at the time: Christoph Martin Wieland. 250 years ago, the poet, translator and philosopher of the Enlightenment moved to Weimar. Here, among other things, he founded the magazine "Der Teutsche Merkur" - and put Weimar on the cultural map of Germany even before Goethe's arrival.

The new permanent exhibition in the historic living quarters of the Oßmannstedt estate offers an introduction to Wieland's biography and his work in all its aspects. Matthias Brandt came to Hamburg to PARRY AUDIO for the recordings of various listening stations.

For thirty years, the Orpheum Foundation for the Advancement of Young Soloists has been fostering musical encounters on the highest level, in which exceptional young soloists are given the opportunity to perform with renowned orchestras under the baton of major conductors. In times of Corona the foundation supports a CD production: Three young soloists play concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The recording took place in the Oberstrass Church in Zurich and the PARRY AUDIO OB van traveled to Switzerland for this special project!

Review pizzicato by Remy Franck: "... ICMA award winner Stephen Waarts kicks things off in the 1st Violin Concerto, which he really plays with immense inspiration and sensitivity. He also shows great musicality in his own cadenzas. [...] Can Cakmur, however, shows in his own cadenzas what he is capable of when it comes to Mozart. [...] As the soloist in this recording, Dudler convinces with a round, warm sound and very nice phrasing..."
