With the risk of stepping into what might a personal realm Ive these thoughts about your last name, Rosenwinkel. There are some discussions going on on youtube and on other forums regarding the origin of your last name. Its either Swedish (!), from Switzerland (but I guess thats being confused with the fact that your wife is from Switzerland?), or its German (since you´re a professor at a university). The story goes on and on.
I hope Im not crossing some line when asking this question. Thank you for having this board Kurt and providing a space to discuss music and art in general...
Best and warmest regards,
