Felicitas Eickelberg

Musician

Dear fans, friends, and colleagues,

this Christmas ist going to be different than usual. This time we stay in an intimate circle and close to ourselves.

Maybe it will be a good experience. Nevertheless, we ask you to do something for the musicians and artists who are currently unable to work: click into livestreams, donate, go to church services. The event industry is down. It is a catastrophe, even though we realize it has to be.

Fortunately, I am doing ok because I also work as a church musician and piano teacher. But right now I am thinking of all the colleagues who have to apply for Hartz IV and all musicians in the world who cannot even do that.

Let us hope that it will be over soon. Stay healthy and save and spend nice hours with all the beautiful music in the world: mine and that of my colleagues. I also invite you to all Advent and Christmas services in which I participate. A list is further down the page.

Have a beautiful Christmas season - especially this year.

Yours, Felicitas

A selection of my concerts, performances and musical accompaniment of the last few years:

2020

Piano Concerts:

  • September: open house afternoon at the Leo Kestenberg music school, improvisations in the with an improv ensemble
  • September: Felicitas Eickelberg & Friends. Concert together with Nico Lohmann (saxophone & flute) and Agustin Strizzi (drums) at the Kunstfabrik Schlot. We played free improvisations on a tonal, atonal, and modal basis with free forms and rhythms – wild and bizarre, romantic and dreamy, individual and intellectual – and always very surprising.
    Many thanks to my fellow musicians, John and the wonderful audience! It was a beautiful evening.

Organ Improvisations Vol. II

My second organ CD is in progress, recorded on the Schuke organ in the 12 Apostle Church. You can look forward to a cross-section of the church year, as well as highlights such as Gershwin's Summertime, trout variations, some classics of film music in a medley and a new improvisation of children's songs.

Many thanks to the team for making this possible, especially to the church musician Christoph Hagemann, but also to Pastor Burkhard Bornemann, to the church staff and of course to my sound engineer Volker Greve.

"If Spring" tells of:

All these "Ifs" and the whole spring; in the heart and in nature, shall be expressed in this music.
