Brigitte Powell Bänninger
Brigitte Powell Bänninger – a devoted mother and grandmother, a poet with a passionate interest in all the arts and an ardent gardener

Born Brigitte Bänninger, the third of five children of Konrad and Helma Bänninger, 6th May, 1939, in Bülach Switzerland.

Brigitte has contributed to all works since our marriage in 1966 with constructive (but ruthlessly honest!) criticism.

Two works in particular use her very considerable poetic skills:

  • Amselbaum (1992, soprano and piano) Song cycle on texts (German) by Brigitte Powell
  • Die Poppa (1999, baritone and tape) Song on texts (German) by Brigitte Powell
