Three questions to Stine Marie Fischer:
A composer: As Lieder have touched me the most since the beginning of my involvement with classical music and I love this small, condensed form very much, I would choose as my composer Robert Schumann, whose songs for me encompass and include everything music can do. Another composer and master of this form has recently emerged – Josephine Lang, a new world and wonderful musical gain for the art form of song.
What was your calling to become a singer? The calling was definitely above all the crazy-exciting idea of spending my life singing, making music and performing, to be constantly searching and having to work on yourself, to be able to interact with people who are madly creative all the time and everywhere and to be able to make a living from that.
To be a singer – in three words: Awareness, empathy, curiosity.
