The results of their extensive work, that usually takes place in close collaboration with the composers, is presented by the Cologne-based international soloist ensemble in up to 100 concerts a year in both Germany and abroad, at festivals, in their own series „musikFabrik in WDR“ and in regular radio recordings and CD productions. The CD “speech songs” as a part of the series “edition musikFabrik” released by WERGO won the ECHO Klassik in 2011. Ensemble musikFabrik is supported by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
