JANUARY NEWS!!!!!

Dear friends,


I wish you a fantastic new year!!! Enjoy life, have fun, make new experiences!!

--
This year will bring a new album release, a new soundtrack for a cinema documentary film, a new trio project and a new duo and lots of concerts and tours.

--
I've already received a great message in january. Selmer, world's most famous manufactury for clarinets and saxophones has decided to choose me as an official Selmer artist. What an honor!!!

--
In october my new duo album "Little Peace Lullaby" will be released worldwide by prestigious german record label Enja Yellowbird. Last year's july me and italian master pianist Stefano Battaglia have recorded more than 20 of my tunes at the Glaeserne Saal of the world-famous Musikverein in Vienna. The cycle of songs "Little Peace Lullabies" builds the core of the new album. The music is completely about sound aesthetics, influenced by contemporary eastern european classical music (Arvo Pärt, Valentin Silvestrov, Giya Kancheli etc.) as well as by scandinavian, persian and mediterranean music.

Beginning with the end of october we will start playing concerts with the new program.

--
A new trio with austrian pianist Cristoph Cech and syrian oud player Orwa Saleh and me on the clarinets will debut on the 21st of april at the viennese Muth, the music theatre of the Wiener Saengerknaben choir.
With this trio it is also planned to record the music of Michael Pfeifenberger's new cinema documentary film in early summer.

--
At the end of the year another new duo project will find its way to light. Together with famous Austrian theatre and movie actor Bernd Jeschek I'll play readings. I did this a few times in the past and it was always a wonderful experience following with my music the spoken words of a reader. And Bernd is a great reader.

--
The Café Drechsler will also play some concerts, for example in june as a main act at the open air Bregenz Jazz Festival.

--


I wish you a fantastic start into the new year.
