I have always felt connected to the music of Wolfgang Amadé Mozart and his personality. However, I never would have guessed that I would one day experience his era beyond its music and history. 


In 2017, the Swiss tailor artist Christian Tanner created a historic women's collection in the style of the 1780s/90s, hand-sewn in every detail, of which I have become the inspiration and wearer. In the transformation through the clothes and the high hairstyle made from my own hair, I experienced a magical connection between the past and the present that made me think: what defined a woman' sense of self, back then? How did she move at her instrument, squeezed into her tight chest, and how did her hands rest while playing? How did her dress rustle as she walked? 

Through my participation in Reenaction events, such as candlelight soirees, dance animations and strolls, Mozart's everyday life, as I thought I knew it from his family correspondence, began to take shape. Through this new experience, I suddenly felt connected to the woman who, around 1780 of the same age as me, was closest to Wolfgang (before he got acquainted with Constanze), namely his sister Maria Anna. 

During the preparations for the recording, it became clear to me, that the CD should express not only Nannerl as a person, but also the relationship between the two siblings. In Nannerl's extraordinary talent, which the brother always appreciated most sensitively, this wish became possible.
