about this recording:
Dorothee Eberhardt initially studied Middle Eastern studies, philosophy,
and Greek, graduating with a doctorate from Tübingen University
in 1979. Inspired by the English saxophonist Barbara Thompson, she moved
to London in 1980 and studied clarinet there at Trinity College of Music
and musicology and composition at Goldsmiths College. She subsequently
continued her composition studies with the Czech composer Antonin Tucapský.
After completing her studies, she worked in London as a composer and
pedagogue, and now lives near Munich. Very famous soloists could bee
found as interpreter: Birgit Götz (solo clarinettiste at Gärtnerplatztheater, Munich),
Sreten Krstic (1st leader of Munich Philharmonic Orchestra), Peter Wöpke
(solo cellist at the Bavarian State Opera, Munich) as well as
the famous Munich pianist Micaela Gelius.
Her compositions, including commissioned works for renowned artists
and ensembles, have been performed throughout the world.
