Fiddler’s Favorites Episode 28: Indira Koch's Chicken (or Lamb, or Vegetable) Stew

August 5, 2020, 3:37 PM · Today’s Fiddler’s Favorites is brought to us by the wonderful violinist Indira Koch.

Indira Koch

Indira is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and she was first prize winner in the International Music Competition "Citta di Stresa" in Italy, as well as a winner of the Artist International Awards in New York. She has appeared in Carnegie Hall and toured in Europe, India, Japan, and North and South Americas.

In 2010 Indira and her husband, renowned cellist Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt, founded Metamorphosen Berlin Orchestra. The musicians of the orchestra are members of leading orchestras in Berlin, reputed chamber musicians or winners of international competitions. In April 2017 their second CD, Serenade, dedicated to works for strings by Peter Tchaikovsky, received high acclaim internationally and was awarded the Melomano de Oro in Spain.

I loved this quote from the Australian Magazine, Limelight: "In addition to being instrumentalists at the top of their game, Wolfgang and Indira are raising enough kids to start a peewee soccer team." They and their four children live in Berlin with their new dog, Luna.

Indira shares with us today her delicious Tante Laureen’s Stew, and I would like to give a special thanks to filmmaker Wolfgang Emanuel Schmidt for helping create the video. Enjoy!
