New Year's speech
The beginning of a new year is always a good reason to walk down memory lane and to do some self reflection...
2023 has been quite a ride...played somewhere around 60-70 shows, did several recordings, wrote many comissions for compositions and arrangements besides doing my own stuff, spent countless hours in rehearsals and on the road etc...
Besides that I started a regular teaching job which also gave me the great opportunity to learn and grow.
But I'm also thinking ahead into the new year. The calendar is graually filling up with many in exciting sideman projects (take a look here) but I'm also thinking about my own projects and my artistic identity a lot. Didn't come to big conclusions yet but it's anyways a slow process and mostly I'm enjoying it :)
Looking forward to 2024 and what it will have in store for us.

Fall Dates 2023
A hot and busy Summer is coming to an end and now I'm looking forward to play several shows in October and November in Austria and Germany eg. with Orjazztra Vienna, JBBG and other projects.
Take a look here to see where you can cath me live.
2022 is history and there is a lot to be grateful about: I played so many concerts with amazing musicans in several countries across Europe, released my 2nd album, composed and arragned for my own projects and also for a lot of other people, finished my studies in Vienna and was able to grow on a musical as well as on a personal level.
Recently I was also happy to write a few commissioned pieces, eg. a chamber piece for the 'Ensemble Merve' and a Sonata for the 'Duo Edlbauer Kuzo'.
'Merve' will play my piece for the next time on 12.01.2023 in Vienna (Jesuitenkirche) and the Sonata will be premiered on 03.02.2023 in Vienna (Alte Schmiede).
The magnificent Alois Eberl also asked me to compose a solopiece for trombone and wind band entitled 'Regen' which will be premiered on 23.04.2023 in Altmünster bei Neukirchen.
Anyways...2023 is also going to be full of musical highlights. Currently a lot of upcoming dates are still being planned.
I will continue updating this page with new dates (espicially with my own projects) in spring and the summer as soon as they're fixed and I'm looking forward to meet familiar as well as new faces :)
After a pretty busy summer full of exciting projects I am looking forward to a pretty busy fall equally full of exciting projects.
Besides many appearances eg. with CCJOP, Orjazztra Vienna, JBBG...we'll also get to play 2 shows with 'Comprovisition' on Sept. 20th in Wels and Sept. 23rd in Vienna
