The Gstaad Academy and Maurice Steger congratulate the students of the Gstaad Baroque Academy on their outstanding achievements at what is probably the most internationally prestigious recorder concert, the MOECK Solo Recorder Playing Competition (London, November 2015). All the prizes went to students of the GBA / Professor Steger’s class: 1st prize: Laura Schmid, 2nd prize: Lea Sobbe and 3rd prize: Sophia Schambeck – congratulations!!!
Laura Schmid, winner of the first prize, is also Steger’s assistant at the summer course for the recorder and early music in Arosa. She will be accompanying him on a concert tour in December, together with the Cappella Gabetta (Lucerne, Basel, Munich, Kufstein; see concert schedule) and Mr Bach’s 4th Brandenburg Concerto.
