"Rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul, on which they mightily fasten" -  Plato

Welcome to my website!


Versatility is one of my features: piano, fortepiano and harpsichord, music from early baroque to contemporary. Besides performing as a soloist and chamber musician, I worked for some years in opera.


I always search for new ways, to get more intensity, more expression, and I try the experiment, to find out what music really does to me.


Music to me is pure inspiration: ever changing and volatile. Being receptive and open to this, that to me means true authenticity. Nobody knows what will be the result of that, and this is what makes it exciting.


Important role models to me are Martha Argerich and Sviatoslav Richter. Each of them moves me in his own particular way: Argerich with her very intense emotional playing, and overwhelmingly beautiful colors, Richter with his profound depth, and his infinite tenderness. 


With both of them the human person seems to disappear in the background, in order to let through the music. This moves me immensely, and is how I try to give on my music.
