Culture despite Corona - not so easy!
At the end of August 2020, Esther Birringer recorded the program for her debut CD within 4 days and thus came a step closer to her long cherished vision of a piano solo album. The financing of a CD production is a big hurdle, especially in the very difficult times for the arts due to Corona.

The Corona crisis and the cancellation of numerous events and concerts that accompanied it, however, creates new perspectives and possibilities in addition to this special situation of social isolation. In this context pianist Esther Birringer has launched a living room concert series.
The new live streamed concert series 'Illtonic - Soli pour vous' started on May 3rd at the Illipse Illingen. The start was made by Esther and Lea Birringer. The
concert was broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube. The program included among others Igor Strawinsky's 'Trois mouvements de Pétrouchka'.
Unusual times - new ideas! In this context, Esther Birringer has launched a vlog on YouTube on which she would like to share her music, thoughts and the beautiful things of life.
Esther and Lea Birringer's latest CD appears on the longlist 1/2020 and has been nominated for the independent record award 'Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik' in the category 'best new
release in the chamber music section'.
The album also received a nomination for the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) 2020.
