In Memory of Friedemann Weigle

  • We are parting from a magnificient musician, a very ingenious teacher and a completely warmhearted person – Friedemann Weigle.

    He had created for us and our art, a very strong character. A very special relationship began from the very day of my birth; My father happend to be Friedemanns' cotraveller with the Petersen Quartet for years - That day he, my father, didn't return home, instead he was at Friedemanns' to celeberate my birth.

    This was a examplary gesture of the friendly cooperation between Friedemann and his collegues. For all the following years, Friedemanns unique sound and his friendly and open mind influenced me and a young generation of musicians.

    He was the personified teamspirit in the ensemble and always had the back of others to watch in his roles as mentor or professor of the highest cadre; and yes at the highest pinnacle, he had flourished. He was always there for us.

    Musically and humanly have we, the Armida Quartet, an unalloyed gratitude to him. The combined performance of the string quintet op. 97 of Antonín Dvořák in the Schloßkirche Berlin-Buch, where today the funeral ceremonies hold, has been one of our greatest shared experiences.

    In many instances when our lessons get toughened and we, staring with wrapt concentration at our notes , Friedeman was always there with his characteristic 'smiley stamp'. This customised stamp, with the smiling face, rather plainly diffusing the Beethoven and Mozart pieces, will forever be a 'Peacy' in our memory and with every grief the name Friedemann would be a memorial of the worth of a smiley in life.

    'Roch 'n' Roll and Goosebumps', that was his creed and with that, he ushered us out to the 2012 ARD Wettbewerb in Munich, and consequently somehow on a path in his very own footsteps. That for us is a wonderfully great honour.

    Today we play Beethoven, Schostakowitsch and Schubert for you our honoured audience, for the mourningcommunity of Berlin-Buch, for the members of the Artemis Quartet and for... Peacy
