Birgit Scherrmann


After completed studies of schoolmusic she developped her interest for solo singing. Since 1995 she gets further studies  from the experienced opera- and concertsinger, bookauthor
( "Im Atemholen sind zweierlei Gnaden")
Brigitta Seidler-Winkler.

In addition she attended international mastercourses amongst others with Cornelius Reid (USA), Sena Jurinac (Lübeck), Zeger Vandersteene (Brussels) and Peter Kooji (Schwäbisch-Gmünd)
In numerous concerts in the south-west of Germany and France she performed significant works of church music repertoire.

The "Stabat mater"  performed two years ago was followed recently by the recital of the homonymus musical version of Alessandro Scarlatti in the course of the "Heimattage in Baden-Wuerttemberg”

A warm and still dramatic voice in all pitches enthuses especially in works of German and French romanticism as well as in the music of the 20th century. This music is in particular close to her heart.

Specifically she worked out works for soprano and organ of Max Reger, Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Flor Peeters, Jean Langlais and Louis Vierne.

In the occasion of the organdays in Trier 2003 she had her first musical meeting with the contemporary composer Naji Hakim (Paris), who inspired her to work on his recently composed "Magnificat".

Together with Ulrich Klemm she recorded the work of Hakim on CD in October 2005.
