TESTIMONIALS

Gisela came to solo singing through her work as accompanist, but has expanded this part of her career to a professional level, through teaching and performing.
In 2014 she started lessons with Jessica Cash, formerly professor at the Guildhall School of Music.
In August 2015, she and pianist Siân Maddock performed a recital with an all German programme as part of the lunchtime series of Guy's hospital, organised by BreathAHR and linked to the fundraising event @culturalcycle.
She has performed in several fundraising concerts for the Friends of the Alexander Technique, as accompanist and also as a singer (solo and ensembles).

In summer 2016 she started singing in a Chamber trio with cellist Una Birtchnell and pianist John Human. The trio have so far performed two full concert programmes in various venues in London as well as in Cheltenham.
Gisela has also given several recitals with pianist Izabella Bako, and has appeared in functions and festivals throughout London.

In March 2018 she organised a concert to celebrate centenary of Claude Debussy (1860-1918), where she performed as a pianist but also sang three of his songs, with John Human at the piano.

In March 2019 she joined the team of classical vocal teachers at the City Lit Institute.

Gisela enjoys singing repertoire from all musical eras with special focus on oratorio and art song.
John and Gisela are currently planning a recital programme featuring Debussy’s complete book of ‘Ariettes oubliées’ and a selection of songs by Richard Strauss.

Please note that Gisela is in the process of creating up-to-date recordings.
