In 2019, through a beautiful coincidence, I got to know the founding team of this unique Orchestra. Since then, we have been planning annual concerts in which South Tyrolean musicians who are successful all over the world are reunited through our initiative. By doing this, we, as founders, stand behind the core values that unite us – togetherness and inclusion.
NUJA gives me the opportunity to show my spontaneous and inventive side. In a duo of harp and voice, Elisa and I write music and guided meditations, organise mindfulness sessions and retreats and also publish our creations on streaming platforms. I especially enjoy the improvisational aspect in the music of NUJA as each live event becomes unique and the music emerges new and unexpected, completely in the moment.
In the unusual instrumentation of flute, bassoon and harp, Annina, Valeria and I have been playing concerts for several years. The exciting thing about this project are not only our intsrumentation but the constant search for new pieces to add to our repertoire. We have discovered amazing compositions which we have then adapted for us and created a versatile programmes.
