When asked, Schumann told the news agency “spot on news” that she was “very shocked” by the news: “It hurts to lose him, even though we haven’t seen each other in years.”
Tanja Schumann mourns Mirco Nontschew
Working with Nontschew was always “a lot of fun” for her, “because he was a real sympathizer and a very unpretentious colleague”: “I almost always remember him as being in a good mood.” Most of all she will miss his “very own way” in the future. “The noises and gestures when he was speaking and playing were not trained. He was like that. And I will miss this manner and his warmth and down-to-earthness very much,” said Schumann.
In her opinion, it was never important to Nontschew to be the center of attention or to be prominent, on the contrary: “I had the feeling that it was actually too much for him.” She keeps her colleague in mind as a person of the heart, down-to-earth and rather modest.
