Schönberg Anniversary 150

On Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 10:05 a.m., the program “Klassik-Treffpunkt” will take place. The violinist Johannes Fleischmann and I will provide the musical framework for the live broadcast on Ö1, commemorating the 150th anniversary of composer Arnold Schönberg.

… So much can be revealed in advance: Some aspects of Arnold Schönberg, which have hardly found their way into the public eye, will provide surprises, even amusement. (Ö1)

Kammer Musik Festival 2023

There will be so much to experience at this year’s Kammer Musik Festival. I have the great pleasure to be represented in large numbers. Right at the opening concert on July 29th at the Kasematten on the Schloßberg in Graz there will be a brilliant start with SYMPHONIACS. It continues with solo, chamber music and even folk music concerts in August. More info, tickets and exact dates can also be found here.

Radio Broadcast

The concert of 05.06.2023 will be broadcast today on the radio as a live recording from the Stefaniensaal Graz. The programme includes George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with the orchestra “recreation” conducted by Daniela Musca and with myself as soloist on the piano.

Find the livestream here. (You can also listen to the programme “Kultur Spezial” for seven days.) Enjoy listening to it!

I am especially looking forward to the upcoming concerts with SYMPHONIACS: On 4 June we can be heard for the first time at the Klagenfurt Festival. The highlight will be our performance at the Chamber Music Festival in Graz on 29 July at the Schloßberg Kasematten, before we come to Berlin on 19 August. More dates here.

SYMPHONIACS is dedicated to the fusion of classical music and modern sounds, creating something unique and exciting. The live concerts are sure to be an unforgettable experience!

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year 2023!

The year is coming to an end and I am so grateful for the wonderful experiences, concerts and encounters. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and for coming to experience music together after such difficult times.

I am especially looking forward to an eventful new year 2023 with beautiful concert highlights – also again in my home country, among others on 25.03.2023 at the Congress Graz and on 04.06.2023 at the Stefaniensaal Graz. There will also be some new surprises. Stay tuned and have a brilliant start into the New Year 2023!

East meets West in Beethoven-House Bonn

After the successful and sold-out benefit concert in favour of Ukraine in April this year, another heartfelt project will follow in favour of the Orphan Care Centre in Malawi. A meeting of Western and Eastern musical cultures will take place – together with the flutist Şefika Kutluer, who lives in Ankara, I will interpret works for flute and piano from Germany, Hungary, Austria, the USA and Turkey.

Concerts in Summer 2022

This year’s summer brought lots of sun, travelling and thankfully – after more than two years of pandemic – plenty of concerts. My concert calendar was filled with wonderful concerts, too, which sometimes pushed me to my limits. But all the musical experiences with so many warm-hearted visitors, friends and co. and thanks to the especially intensive efforts of all the concert organizers, made this summer particularly wonderful. A new concert season 2022/23 also begins with a home performance on 16.09. in Mortantsch – new dates will be available here soon.

And all those who would like to take a look behind the scenes on my travels and concerts, I warmly invite you to follow me on Instagram.
