There Is Home
Bella Adamova could be described as a contralto with a deep, beautifully coloured voice. And as an improviser who – in rare harmony with pianist Michael Gees – creates spontaneous compositions on texts of their favourite poets. The theme of this album is the search for home and the knowledge of a place where one belongs. Bella Adamova narrates the songs as her own story, at the same time accentuating the life stories of the composers as well as their relationship to their home or their feeling of being outcast. Rather than a typical song recital, this recording is an invitation to the musicians’ own world where every word, no matter what language it is sung in, has its deep meaning.
Bella Adamova and Michael Gees have a very rare talent: they are both exceptionally gifted improvisers. This is the basis from which the current CD with collaborative improvisations arose. Ten poems from different authors form the starting point for their musical expedition...

Father & Son
Christoph & Julian Prégardien, Michael Gees
We wanted an encounter with the prodigious complexity of Schubert’s oeuvre and to show that boundaries overlap. We have included dramatic ballads, vocal ensembles and  meditative solo songs which we have “heard” anew and arranged in various ways. 
Bach – Mendelssohn –  Metamorphosis
Es war einmal – lange vor der Erfindung des Jazz – gewünscht und üblich, dass Interpreten mit dem Vorgeschriebenen schöpferisch umgingen und über vorgetragene Werke phantasierten, sie nicht nur spielten, sondern mit ihnen spielten...
Mit ihrem freigeistigen, intelligenten und urmusikalischen Tun führen diese beiden Interpreten zum Kern des Volkslieds zurück, das sie begeistert hörbar machen: Das einfache Lied ist da. Anna Lucia Richter und Michael Gees reichern es an und bereichern Musik und Hörer."(Bayrischer Rundfunk)
Michael Gees mit anverwandelnden Improvisationen auf Kompostionen von Erik Satie
Beyond Schumann
Michael Gees thinks of a composition as of a living creature. Something very unusual in classical music.
In his new album Beyond Schumann, Gees goes beyond the works of Schumann and gives us a new and fresh way of looking at them.
