Musicians

Charlotte Balle

She plays the first violin- and there could be some truth in her having- as primaria- a touch of the primadonna- maybe. At receptions, however, at official occasions and even at parties she prefers to withdraw into a quiet corner. If the need for verbal expression arises, she makes use of her Berlin roots.
She is responsible for our music material and loves to dig for new sources. Added to that she takes care of the web correspondence.
Her violin is her best companion who helps her to express herself when words fail.


Lisa Barry

When playing as a quartet, she likes to support the first violin, at the same time listening carefully to the lower voices- her place in the middle suits her just fine.
Different diplomas acquired in various fields of work are helpful for organizing the quartet and also herself.
In all her activities and plenty of cosmopolitical experience her priority remains her love for music.
She revels in Mendelssohn's compositions and loves silence, prefers her Vespa to any car and  enjoys language in writing, she loves Corfu and home- baked goodies, feels comfortable networking for herself as well as for her friends, dances Tango at Milongas and collects passports.


Dorothea Galler

She came (2009), saw (the costumes) and stayed to play with the Ladies.
Her wry sense of humour and her appropriately rendered stories and citations from the glittering cosmos of music theatre bring life into each of the quartet's rehearsals.
She loves to travel and to eat well and she adores dancing.
She takes care of our finances, and, ever since her debut with the „Ladies“, is in charge of the acquisition of Prosecco.


Maria Friedrich

In the quartet she performs seated between Charlotte and Doro, and- as if her own size wasn't sufficient- often elevated on a platform.
Besides her unique Bavarian sense of humour she adds a basic solidity to our work, taking care of scales and questions of intonation.
Her sense of culinary pleasures is very refined, she enjoys friendly company as well as peace and quiet, always remaining true to the title- acquired already in school- of  „first in the art of living it up“.
