The Austrian newspaper “Kleine Zeitung” created a new virtual podium for artists during the coronavirus crisis. On Saturday, 4 April 2020 at 19:00 CET I am playing the so-called “Living Room Concert“, which can be followed via livestream or as a recording. The program includes works by Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann and Liszt. I am looking forward to play for You!
Due to the coronavirus crisis and the cancelled concerts I have founded the format “Couch Concerts” on 20 March 2020. These miniature concerts are live-streamed videos. Now, I am happy to annnounce, that from Wednesday (25 March 2020) onwards, it will be possible to follow the live-braodcast also via YouTube on my website. I am looking forward to “seeing you”!
Stay tuned, stay healthy and stay home!
Currently everything and everybody is concerned about one thing – the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Especially the concert world, artists and musicians are affected by the consequences of the worldwide outbreak. My tour in Russia and the concerts in Italy are already cancelled – alternate dates in progress. A lot of things stay uncertain…
The most important thing for me as a musician is to stay positive, take the worldwide measures serious, but on the other hand to make the best out of this situation. Music accompanies us everywhere – even far from concert halls and concert tours.
I am very honoured to announce, that I will tour through Germany’s NRW (Nordrhein-Westfalen) next year. I am glad to cooperate with the wonderful concert and artist agency Jens Gunnar Becker.
More information about the upcoming concerts can be found here.
Last week on 19 February the official presentation of my debut album “QUASI FANTASIA” happened in Vienna. Christoph Wellner, chief editor of the broadcasting station “radio klassik Stephansdom” invited me to talk about my CD, Ludwig van Beethoven and more. Please listen to it here:
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:
On 19 February 2020 at 7pm I am inviting to a CD presentation with concert in the Bösendorfer Salon in Vienna’s Musikverein. I am looking forward to seeing you there!
The new schedule for the upcoming year 2020 is online. I hope to see you soon “somewhere” in the new year and I wish everybody:
Happy New Year!
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.
