Gudrun Forstner erhielt im Alter von 10 Jahren ihren ersten Orgelunterricht bei Domorganist Eberhard Kraus in Regensburg. Mit 16 Jahren wechselte sie zum Konzertfach-Orgel-Studium an die Hochschule für Musik und Theater in München: zunächst zu Prof. Gerhard Weinberger (für drei Jahre als Gaststudentin) – nach dem Abitur in die Orgelklasse von Prof. Franz Lehrndorfer. 

Interpretationskurse bei Daniel Roth/Paris und Marie Claire Alain rundeten die Ausbildung ab.

 

Für drei Jahre wirkte Gudrun Forstner hauptamtlich an der A-Stelle als Kirchenmusikerin der Pfarrei „St. Johann Baptist“/Haidhausen in München. Inzwischen ist sie im Hauptberuf als Gymnasiallehrerin für Musik tätig. Darüber hinaus arbeitet sie bei Konzerten und Fest­gottesdiensten künstlerisch zusammen mit professionellen Orchestern und Solisten sowie mit renommierten Chören. Als Konzertorganistin ist sie gefragt bei Kulturfestivals wie z. B. „Tegernseer Woche“, „Orgeltriduum in der Basilika Marienstatt“ oder „Internationale Orgelkonzerte im Hohen Dom zu Passau“.

"Salomé" (1922) live + Lecture

Kino im Filmmuseum

St - Jakobsplatz 1

80331 München

Beginn: 19:00 Uhr

Anyone who has seen Alfred Hitchcock's classic "The Birds" (1963) will forever remember the eerie cries of the seagulls. To date, however, very few people know that these tones were artificially generated - by a Trautonium. This unusual electronic instrument, which was revolutionary at the time, was presented for the first time in Berlin in1930 and is a kind of "grandmother" of the synthesizer. Amazing sound effects and fascinating and unique soundscapes can be created with the Trautonium, which can hardly be imitated with modern synthesizers.

At the invitation of the Munich Film Center (MFZ), Peter Pichler is playing a film evening with the Mixturtrautonium. He will accompany the avant-garde silent film SALOMÉ (US 1922 | Charles Bryant, Alla Nazimova | 72 min | OV) live and then illustrate the various possible uses of the Trautonium using selected scenes from films from different decades. One of the film examples was set to music especially for this evening and has its premiere here. Finally - as always with Peter's performances - there is a Q&A, also directly at the instrument.
