Interview on WDR 3: "Fragenkoffer"

Recently, Nicholas Rimmer has been invited by WDR 3 Tonart to answer questions from the well-known and very popular "Fragenkoffer" ("Question Box"). In this program, musicians have to answer questions that have been taken out of a box by coincidence - the conversations developed out of this procedure are always very funny and cover lots of different topics. Nicholas Rimmer spoke, among others things, about his favourite drinks, breakdowns in the concert business and books he is currently reading.

New CD 1

I'm very excited about the release of this CD with my trio colleague Jonian Ilias Kadesha. He chose amazing pieces for his debut CD - all united by the influence of folk music. If you don't yet know Enescu's 3rd sonata you must hear it - for me it's without question one of the greatest violin sonatas of the 20th century. 

Strauss Songs

Nicholas Rimmer recorded with german soprano Katharina Persicke a wonderful choice of songs by Richard Strauss for the label GENUIN. The CD has been released beginning of November 2015 and received very positive reviews on different media. Please click HERE for an overview (in German).
