About Us


stille liebe is initiated by two young recording producers and attends to making forgotten/unknown musical works publicly available again, primarily those from the 19th century. For this purpose, recordings are produced and published. The basis of this project is the fascination and enthusiasm for classical music. Further motivations of everyone involved are the preservation and rediscovery of musical culture. Through our work we want to give young artists in particular the opportunity to publish professional recordings. We're located in Düsseldorf and are planning to release albums as well as online content on a regular basis.

He holds a bachelor's degree in Sound and Video, as well as a master's degree in Artistic Music Production from Robert Schumann Hochschule and Hochschule Düsseldorf.

In the same year, he produced Joachim Raff's opera "Die Eifersüchtigen" with the Opernkollektiv Zürich and an album with new arrangements of Peter Cornelius's Nine Sacred Songs, featuring the new Klais organ in the Martinskirche Stuttgart for the first time. In 2023, he recorded an album featuring the Mädchenchor Hannover and the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet, which included the first recording of Lera Auerbach's cycle 'Galgenlieder'.
