Album Notes
This Lieder Recital was live recorded by Sony Professional (analog) on 1th March 2002 in Berlin. In 2006 Wiebke Hoogklimmer has digitized this recording. And now - all, who are interested in the "Winterreise" and in Contralto's, can buy this CD!!!

Wiebke Hoogklimmer was born in Hannover, Germany, and began her musical education at the age of eight as a member of the "Girls Choir Hannover". She continued her education at the Academy of Music and Acting in Hamburg where she studied opera direction on the course initiated by Prof. Goetz Friedrich, and graduated with distinction.
She has worked as assistant director, stage manager, and substitute in the artistic management office at the Niedersaechsischen Opera in Hannover, the Hamburg State Opera, the German Opera Berlin and the International Summer Course at Schloss Weikersheim. During this time she worked with the following directors and stage designers: Guenter Roth, Stephan Mettin, Martin Rupprecht, Hans-Peter Lehmann, John Cox, John Dew, Erhard Fischer, Herbert Wernicke, Goetz Friedrich, Andreas Reinhardt.

After finishing her studies she started private vocal tuition with Elisabeth Umierski (Berlin) and continued with Prof. Annie Schoonus (Academy of Music and Acting in Hamburg) and with Christiane Bach-Roehr (Comic Opera Berlin).

In 1988 to 1991 she sang with the RIAS chamber choir and had her first solo stage appearance in the role of Arnalta in Monteverdi's "Coronation of Poppea" at the Junges Theater Goettingen. She went on to sing the parts of both the king and queen in Toovey's "Ubu" at the opera stabile of the State Opera in Hamburg and then the parts of the Third Lady in Mozart's "Magic Flute" and Orfeo in Gluck's "Orfeo ed Euridice". 2009 she sang the part of the Geneviève in Debussy's "Pelléas et Mélisande" in the opera stabile of the State Opera in Hamburg.

Wiebke Hoogklimmer mainly works as a solo contralto, giving concerts and recitals. Her repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary music.

Patrick Walliser, born in Switzerland, is piano professor at the "Universität der Künste" (UdK) in Berlin. He has a lot of experience working with international singers at the German Opera Berlin as well as working as a conductor in Kiel, Ulm and Wiesbaden.
Furthermore, he worked as assistant to Giuseppe Sinopoli in Berlin, Rom, Taormina, and at the Milan Scala and as co-conductor of Johannes Kalitzke during the "Steirischen Herbst" and in Paris, Vienna and Berlin.
His particular love - apart from some excursions into the areas of chansons and theatre - is accompaniment in recitals.
He played one of the 4 pianos in Aribert Reimann's opera "Bernarda Albas Haus" at the Comic Opera Berlin and worked on other productions there as well. He has worked also for the RuhrTriennale (Die Soldaten) and for the EuropaChorAkademie.

Wiebke Hoogklimmer and the pianist Prof. Patrick Walliser have been working together since 1998. So far they've performed recitals with songs by Johannes Brahms, Franz Schubert, Luise Adolpha Le Beau, Clara and Robert Schumann, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Hugo Wolf, Arthur Honegger, Alban Berg, C. René Hirschfeld, Gustav Mahler and Lili Boulanger.
In 2003 their CD "Clairières dans le ciel" was published with the so named song cycle by Lili Boulanger - transposed for contralto - and with selected songs by Schubert and Mahler, and at the piano Patrick Walliser. The Label is THOROFON (order-nr. CTH 2477).

Through Wiebke Hoogklimmer's huge interest in film she has worked as assistant to costume design and props management in the ZDF Television film production of "Superbia" (1986) by Ulrike Ottinger. 2005 she has worked as assistent producer for the filmproduction "18.15 Uhr ab Ostkreuz" by Jörn Hartmann, which had the world première at the Berlin International Film Festival - Berlinale 2006. In April/May 2007 Wiebke Hoogklimmer has worked for the newest film by Bruce LaBruce "OTTO; or, Up with Dead People", which had the world première at the Berlin International Film Festival - Berlinale 2008. In August/September she has worked as assistant director and continuity for the newest feature film "Bandaged" by Maria Beatty.

Dorle Hohengaten

What a magic travel!
What a magic travel! - Schuberts "Winterreise" performed live by contralto Wiebke Hoogklimmer and pianist Patrick Walliser.

Imagine a dark silent room. Out of this silence the piano starts sensitive and the pure, clear and warm voice of Wiebke Hoogklimmer fills the dark space with beauty. Yes, the beauty of Schuberts music - you are able to discover it in a new way, when Wiebke Hoogklimmer sings and Patrick Walliser accompanied her on the piano. In their interpretation Schubert sounds fresh, lively and modern whithout any flourish.

Both artists create an intensive, dynamic atmosphere, that touched me deeply.

It was late at night when I first listened to the CD. I listened to it twice - won't leave that "magical mystery tour".
