About me

As far as I can remember music is an important part of my life beside art and philosophy. Therefore playing the piano is for me always been about reflecting on what I have seen and experienced in my life. 

Born in a small town near the polish border with an German-cuban background,
growing up in Thuringia with that huge Bach tradition and living vor several years in southern Germany give me a lot to think about culture, identity and plurality. That are also subjects that are reflect my approach to music and the piano.

Most of what the piano playing belongs I have taught by myself. My first piano lessons I got from a Russian pianist at the age of fifteen.
And since then I have written works for chamber music, orchestra, organ and piano. Improvising at the piano as well as capturing my musical thoughts was always been closer to me than playing pre-set literature. Nevertheless, my interest in Bach, music theory and the technical aspects of playing the piano is of great importance to me.

The main focus of my musical work is connected to composing and to the exploration of the sound possibilities on the piano. Thereby music is always for me an exploration of inner states of mind, feelings and thoughts.
