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 the center 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.
To remember a wonderful 2017 and as a foretaste of my upcoming trip to the United States I would like to share my performance at the Van Cliburn Competition in Bass-Hall in Fort Worth/Texas.
Two days left…
I wish all of you a happy new year – good luck, good health and joyful moments with music!
Once a year escaping the everyday stress and spending the most beautiful time with the dear ones – that is Christmas time.
I wish everybody a happy festive season, tranquil days and most of all a wonderful time with your dear ones.
