ABOUT ME

“Why do I play the piano? It is my quest for beauty. Music has the mysterious power to transform everything into beauty. No matter if it grows out of happiness or sorrow, anger or enthusiasm, despair or love – expressed in a sublime way, all becomes delight.

This is the alchemy of music, the piano is my instrument of transfiguration. This is how I learn to embrace everything and this is the experience I want to share with you.

Leave behind actions and thoughts – and enter into the tremendous realm of feeling and perceiving.

“Every piece is a path.”
