PERFORMANCES

"bewies die Künstlerin am Sonnabend eindrucksvoll mit ihrer Performance im Zellenspeicher...Obertongesang nennt sich die Kunst, die Frau Barz während ihres langjährigen London- Aufenthalts gelernt hat...erläuterte die sympathische Künstlerin...und...bescherte eine so tolle Resonanz, daß den zahlreichen Zuhörern fast der Mund offen stehen blieb- vor Staunen."

"...ein Multitalent, bezeichnete ein Zuschauer die Sängerin auf Grund der öffentlichen Präsentation ihrer nun auch lyrischen Kreativität...viele Besucher ließen es sich im Anschluß nicht nehmen und erstanden einen Gedichtband bei der Autorin persöhnlich.."

(Pressestimmen)

...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................

...very impressive demonstrated the musical-artist her performance in the “Zellenspeicher” (old silo in Rathenow)...overtone singing you call this kind of art, which Ms Barz studied during her long- year stay in London..explains the very friendly artist...and..bestowed with such a great resonance under the large audience, that some of the visitors were left with their astound mouth open...

...a multitalent, describes one listener the singer (Andra Barz), in a result of the public presentation of her now even lyrical creativity...lots of visitors insisted of acquiring one of her lyrical books from the author personally ...”

ELFENGESANG  /  ELVE SONG


In einem lichten Wald
unter duftenden Blüten,
zarten Gewächsen
und schimmernden Ranken
bewegen sich,
geschmeidig, grazil tanzend
und hauchfein singend
anmutige und zierliche Wesen...
mit glockenklarer Stimme,
tönt Andrache,
flüstert und berauscht
die träumende Elfenbotin
barfuss, sacht, schwebend
in sanft- seidenen Gewändern,
stiehlt uns fort,
zu den elysischen Gefielden
des blühenden Königreiches,
zum silbernen Nebel- Licht
und zu den diamantenen
Schätzen von Tautropfen, funkelnd
in ihrer Pracht und Glanz

.........................................................

In a bright- lighted forest
Under scented blossoms,
Shimmering tendrils,
And gentle, fragile plants
Move some
Sleek, smooth, gracile dancing,
finely, fainted singing,
Graceful and dainty creatures
So cristall- clear as chimes and bells
Resound her chant
Echos Andrache
Whispers and evokes
The dreaming messenger of elves
Barefoot, tender floating
In silky- sheer garment
And takes us to the
Elysian fields
Of flowering kingdom.
To the misty silver- light
And to the bediamonded
Treasures of dewdrops, twinkling
In its glory and splendour



"...Andra Barz verzauberte mit Elfenklängen..."

"...man nehme eine möglichst hohe Röhre mit guter Akkustik, dazu eine Frau mit enormer Stimmgewalt (....) und entlockte dort am Fuße der Röhre, ihrer Stimme elfengleiche Klänge und Gesänge..."

"...mal kindlich flüsternd, mal geheimnisvoll singend und klingend entführte Barz die Besuche in eine mystische Welt..."

(Pressestimmen)

...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................

”...Andra Barz enchants with Elve- Sounds...”

“...one takes an as large as possible tube with good acoustics, secondly a woman with enourmes voice- power....(...) and she drew from her voice there, on the bottom of the tube, elve- like sounds and chants...”

“...at times a child- like whisper, then a mysterious singing and sounding, Barz took the audience into a mythical world..”
