“Thank you!”


… to pianist Michiyo, to guitarists Stefan and Markus, to recorder player Barbara, and to my dear friend Ludger.

… and particularly to my husband Richard, who wrote the guitar settings and took on the part of the musical director, and to my dear daughter Maiko Isabelle, who translated the booklet into English.






… to my old parents, who still support my work, and to my mother in law, who was well versed in German folk songs but, unfortunately, is already interred at the Zentralfriedhof (Central Graveyard) Vienna.
