Martina Swandulla studied in Munich, Italy and the USA. Her singing activity covers the entire spectrum of sacred music for alto, especially of the Baroque period. An encounter with the composer Lutz Landwehr von Pragenau has proved to be a mutually inspiring and uplifting experience, leading to valuable cooperation and a number of successful interpretations.
Lutz Landwehr v. Pragenau (*1963) studied composition at the University of Music in Munich with Wilhelm Killmayer. Most recently, he received the Bavarian Composition Prize awarded by the Via Nova Choir in 2020. In his works he focuses on a radical reconciliation with traditional patterns of tonal music. For only in the conventional, familiar language does it seem possible to him to present the peculiarity and characteristics of his music in the form of deviation and discontinuity.
