We are in the middle of the Beethoven anniversary and it fully infected me. It is not for nothing that the majority of his oeuvre is in the center of my work: the five piano concertos, his piano sonatas, variations, piano trios, duo sonatas, choir fantasy, etc. – all of these masterworks are ahead of me in the Beethoven year 2020. Experience musical fireworks of emotions with me!
Here is a snippet of Beethoven’s 3rd piano concerto as a foretaste:
My personal “Prelude” for the Beethoven anniversary 2020 was the concert in the marvellous Théâtre des Sablons in Paris together with the “Orchestre de Chambre Nouvelle Europe” under the baton of Nicolas Krauze with Ludwig van Beethoven’s piano concerto No. 3.
The musical journey with Beethoven went on in his home town Bonn and with the fulminant Choir Fantasy my intense “concert year” comes to an end on the fourth Advent Sunday. Stay tuned for more in 2020…
I wish everyone: Merry Christmas! – and calm days with your beloved ones.
On 24th September 2019 I visited the Steinway House in Düsseldorf and talked with Carsten Dürer – publisher and chief editor of the music magazine “PIANONews” – about my professional career and my debut CD “QUASI FANTASIA”. You can watch the video interview here (English subtitles available soon):
The debut in the big hall of the “Elbphilharmonie” in Hamburg with Tchaikovsky was a great success. The packed hall with 2.100 listeners, a fantastic Bösendorfer 280VC, the musicians of the K&K Phil and above all the conductors Maximilian and Matthias Kendlinger made this very emotional event to a musical celebration.
Within the last few months I have travelled the world – from Brazil, South Africa, Russia, to Japan. Now, my very first trip to China is awaiting me. I will discover this new country from 29th August until 11th September, before I visit my hometown on 13th September. I am very much looking forward to this adventure.
After the international DVD preselection process and three intensive rounds at the “Santa Cecilia International Piano Competition” I have been awarded third prize. It was a special moment to play in the famous “Casa da Música” in Porto with the Portuguese Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of maestro Osvaldo Ferreira. A great honour and an even greater start for the summer.
With great pleasure, I would like to present my solo debut album named “QUASI FANTASIA”. The CD contains both well-known and rare treasures of classical music. It celebrates even two premieres with the sensational discovery of Mozart’s “Alla Turca” sonata AND the reconstruction of Zerline Erfurt’s “Sonata quasi Fantasia”.
I invite all of you to join me on a musical journey – “QUASI FANTASIA”.
