Great success for the show’s organizer and songwriter Claudia Hirschfeld from Parcit: With her song “Luciano” she has now won an international composition competition – the UK Songwriting Competition – in the open category in Great Britain.
Parsit / Great Britain – Claudia Hirschfeld’s song “Luciano” was based on 16 other songs. For Hirschfeld this is a major prize for his creation, as it is very rare for a German to win.
Andrea Mautner, Claudia Herscheld’s husband and manager, explains, “Claudia wrote the song on the 10th anniversary of Luciano Pavarotti’s death in 2017, and as a hymn for the tenth decade of the century.”
Songs for the death of opera singer Luciano Pawarotti
Italian opera singer Luciano Pavarotti died of cancer in 2007 at the age of 71. He is considered one of the most important tenures of all time, beyond the boundaries of opera and classical music.
A crowdfunding campaign made it possible to record Hirschfeld’s piece with a large choir and orchestra in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. In the same year “Luciano” was awarded the German Rock and Pop Award in the “Best Composition” category. In 2018 the title made it to the finals of the composition competition “International Song Writing Competition” in USA. “Victory in Great Britain is now a crowning achievement”, Mautner said.
The song is also known in Anse. In New Year’s Welcome 2018 at Schützenhalle Hünningen / Lüttringen, singer Oscar Marin – along with Claudia Hirschfeld – sang the song live. Mautner recalls minutes of ovations.
