This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievences complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
Welcome to Lisa.Herger.At! This is a place for singers and instrumentalists interested in performing, rehearsing and/or studying with Lisa Herger, experienced and successful collaborative pianist. I'm available for musical projects both great and small and, above all, fun and challenging.
Allow me to introduce myself, I am from the USA and have been working and residing in Vienna, Austria -- City of Music -- for well over a decade.
I am on the faculty of the University of Music in Vienna, where I teach Keyboard Skills and work as an Accompanist.
My work as a free-lance musician has taken me to many different countries and 3 continents. My more interesting projects recently in Austria include:
Lisa Herger plays Ripples of the Allegheny by Harry J. Lincoln — Watch on YouTube
A. Gabucci, Aria - Sergio Bosi Clarinet, L.M. Herger piano — Watch on YouTube
Vienna has really earned its reputation as "The City of Music" and I am not referring merely to the well-known historical reasons.
Vienna's musical life is constantly growing and changing. There are many reaons for this. The State supports the arts generously, which serves to uphold such traditional institutions as the State Opera House as well as encouraging Kleinkunst (art on a small scale).
The diverse, well-educated audience here has developed quite sophisticated and demanding tastes thanks to the vast and varied musical offering. The constant influx of musicians, both students and professionals, from all over Europe and abroad contribute to the rich musical life of the city. The profitable tourist industry adds to the demand for concerts of all kinds, ranging from Mozart done in Mozart-like costumes, to traditional Opera and Operetta, to Beethoven's Piano Sonatas performed in Beethoven's actual former-residences.
Who works with me?
