Episode 3 features guest Isang Enders. At just 20 years old, he landed an orchestra job that many can only dream of: First solo cellist of the Staatskapelle Dresden! But he soon realized: "Somehow I'm becoming a yuppie here!" and quit. Today he enjoys the freedom of a solo career and shows his skills: from Bach to Hans-Werner Henze - and how to make a Frankfurt Green Sauce according to an old family recipe. The Tiny House series features a young generation of artists talking about their experiences in the classical music world, performing their favorite pieces and discussing their favorite recipes. It’s part talk show, part cooking show and part intimate private concert.
