Classical music and especially piano music is highly appreciated in Japan. One can see this just by looking at the numbers of listeners in the concert hall. This video (click here) was recorded during my performance at the Hamamatsu International Piano Competition.

My last journey brought me to Canada for the very first time. Beside a lot of great memories, I luckily have a wonderful video of my adventure to share. You can find a video of my collaborative recital during the prestigious „Honens International Piano Competition“ here: Video >
In Austria’s so-called “Green Heart” it is always something special to give a concert. Additionally, the Castle of Stubenberg provides a wonderful atmosphere for a calm musical evening on Sunday, 19 August at 6p.m. Special guest is the Norwegian violinist Laurens Weinhold, as we will perform Schubert’s dreamlike Fantasy in C major among others.
After the intense final exam with three parts at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz, I am proud to be officially called “Master of Arts” (MA) with distinction.
My special thanks goes to all my close friends and family and my mentor Markus Schirmer.
With incredibly great honour I would like to announce, that as one out of only 10 semifinalists in the “Honens International Piano Competition 2018” I will travel to Calgary/Canada. The competition is among the world’s most important piano competitions, but is special with its exceptional repertoire requirements, which makes the “Honens” one of a kind. Please find more information here.
In the marvellous opera house of Graz wonderful music will sound to the ballet production “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” of director Jörg Weinöhl after the eponymic comedy by William Shakespeare. In cooperation with the Graz Philarmonic Orchestra under the baton of Robin Engelen I will perform music by Mozart (piano concerto No. 23 in A major) as well as music by Franz Schubert (“Die Götter Griechenlands”) together with singer Andrea Purtić.
Please find more details and dates of performances here.
After my adventures in Berlin and Paris music guides me into thecenter of classical music – Vienna. As the “new” Bösendorfer-Artist I will perform in the beautiful ambience of the Hotel Imperial next month.
After my success at the “Pianale 2017” with four awards overall I will return to Germany with two solo recitals on March 3rd and 4th.
It will be exciting with Schubert’s Sonata in G major, which is described by Robert Schumann as the “most perfect in form and conception” of any Schubert Sonata. Exactly Schumann also was the dedicatee of Franz Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, with its concluding chords I would like to come to a calm end of the recital.
With great pleasure I would like to announce, that I will perform Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2 – also known as “The Age of Anxiety” – together with the renown orchestra “recreation – GROSSES ORCHESTER GRAZ” on May 28th and 29th in the beautiful “Stefaniensaal” of the Congress Graz.
