Teresa Hackel

Aargauer Kuratorium

The recorder player Teresa Hackel was born in Berlin and has lived and worked in Switzerland since 2005. Her focus is free improvisation, a non-idiomatic music which is invented in the moment. She is keen to search for strange and unconventional sounds on the different types of the recorder and she is inspired by contemporary compositions for this wonderful and often underestimated instrument. In her playing she values listening – there is no unnecessary sound, just the music that comes by itself.

Teresa was awarded the 3rd Prize at the Concours Nicati for interpreters of contemporary music in Bern and she took part in different Swiss premieres. In 2018 the CD Solare was released with pieces of Fausto Romitelli, in 2022 she released the CD Zustandsformen with the guitar player Karin Rüdt. She has played in several projects and ensembles, currently she is a member of the Insubordination Meta Orchestra. Regularly she plays the Cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach with the “J.S.Bach-Stiftung”, conducted by Rudolf Lutz.
