stille liebe is initiated by two young recording producers and attends to making forgotten/unknown musical works publicly available again, primarily those from the 19th century. For this purpose, recordings are produced and published. The basis of this project is the fascination and enthusiasm for classical music. Further motivations of everyone involved are the preservation and rediscovery of musical culture. Through our work we want to give young artists in particular the opportunity to publish professional recordings. We're located in Düsseldorf and are planning to release albums as well as online content on a regular basis.
Johannes Tosta was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1996. He studied sound and image at the Robert-Schumann-Hochschule and the Hochschule Düsseldorf. His focus is on recording classical music and composing for media. Johannes interests as a musician, producer and consumer range between many different genres and styles. As a freelancer and member of the sound engineering team at the Tonhalle Düsseldorf he cooperated with professional ensembles like the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, the Sinfonieorchester Wuppertal, the Orpheus Consort and Ensemble Kupido. He also regularly participated in the Festival Young Artists Bayreuth as a recording producer. He produced an album with new arrangements of the Neun Geistliche Lieder by Peter Cornelius, for the first time featuring the new Klais organ in the Martinskirche Stuttgart. In the context of the music edition of his father Volker Tosta (edno.de) he published orchestral songs by Joachim Raff for a recording with the Swiss Orchestra. In addition to his work as a tonmeister he composes and arranges music for media and ensembles.
Benedikt Fuchs was born in 1997. His professional path led him into sound and image studies with a major in singing at the Robert-Schumann-Hochschule Düsseldorf and the Hochschule Düsseldorf. At the present time his chief occupation is music production for various genres, including his work as a sound engineer in the field of classical music. Here he produced recordings with several orchestras (among others: Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra, Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra, Studio Orchestra Duisburg and Essen Philharmonic Orchestra). With the Essen Philharmonic Orchestra he has already realised several projects such as the recording of the world premiere of "Tefilat Geshem" by Boris Gurevich, the anthem of the Essen football club in an orchestral version, and a video consisting of various mobile phone videos of individual musicians and dancers of the Aalto Ballett Essen during the Corona Lockdown. He also works as a tonmeister for Live Stream productions with the Essen Philharmonic Orchestra. He was also engaged in world premiere recordings of early baroque music in historically informed performance practice with the ensemble "The Orpheus Consort". He also produced classical CDs for the Wandelweiser Label and the Label Sterling Records. In the meantime, he is also active in the field of jazz and has produced several recordings for the Düsseldorf jazz series "Jazz meets Nilsson". Most recently, he produced the new album of the band “Lariza” (Synth-Jazz), which will be released in January 2022. Apart from his recording activities, he composes and produces songs together with a jazz guitarist and contributed some compositions to some short films and videos.
