What music means to our alumni

Creative Generalist and Traveller Michael Bartels

Pianist and engineer Sylvia Dankesreiter

“I savour being on stage with a full-sized orchestra“

Engineering in the morning, family in the afternoon, piano performances in the evening. Since childhood TUM Alumna Sylvia Dankesreiter is a passionate musician. Yet, as a young piano virtuoso, she opted for a degree programme at TUM.

Actress Maria Furtwängle

„I am a feminist who started late“

In order to be a full-time actress Dr. Maria Furtwängler has taken off the white doctor’s coat for good. But the contents of her medical studies at TUM still influence her self-conception.
