"Little Peace Lullaby" and upcoming plans.

Dear friends,


I hope you all have spent a wonderful relaxed summer!!!

With Stefano Battaglia, my wonderful new duo partner, I've spent in july nearly a week in the perfect ambiente of the "Glaeserne Saal", part of the world famous Musikverein in Vienna.

After three days of intensive rehearsing for our new concert program "Little Peace Lullaby" we spent another three days of recording the new compositions and arrangements (more than 20 songs).

We're now in the process of choosing and preparing the right takes of each tune and I already can tell you that we've produced some really beautiful music, more than enough for making a records or even a double album. Very intimate melodies & atmospheres, played just with piano and bass clarinet or basset horn.

I hope to upload some of the material in the near future on the website. The album released is planned for 2015.

--
I also started working on preparing music for one or perhaps even two new projects. For a long time I had the dream to integrate the wonderful sound of the oud (persian lute) into my music. I'm thinking about a trio with bass clarinet, oud and piano.

--
This year I've decided not to play that much concerts and to concentrate more on developing new ideas and life plans which feels really good.
So in autumn there're only will be some few performances: for september and november we have plans with the duo to play concerts in South Korea. Beside there will be some single performances in Austria.

Enjoy the last weeks of summer.
