What does music mean to you personally?

Standard answer ... everything

But it really is, the music has helped me so often in my life.
There were difficult moments and then again beautiful.

I would not know what I would do without music, it would be as if there was no air for me, but you need to breathe and so it is with me with the music.

Do you agree that music is all about fantasy?

Yes this opinion, but I am also not, because in the music is always true. For me it is so that I speak with the music more than with words.

 If you were not a professional musician, would would you have been?

Oh .. I believe firefighter that I wanted to be as a child.

The classical music audience is getting old, are you worried about your future?

The classical music is always included, my style is more likely to appeal to the young, as I compose NEW AGE music.

What do you envision the role of classical music to be in the 21 century? Do you see that there is a transformation of this role?

Yes, as I wrote before, I think that the classical music becomes more new age. Say, the typical classic sounds are no longer used or almost never ;-)

When I say that classical music is searching for new ways or that the classical music is getting a new face, what would come to your mind?

New age 

Do you think that the classical musician today needs to be more creative? Whats the role of creativity in the musical process for you?

I just think there are not many classical composers.
Also at concerts, Mozart and so on are always played.

Do not get me wrong, that's all super nice but where is the new music? Could not they just go through?

That's my question.

Do you think we musicians can do something to attract young generation into the classical music concerts? How will you proceed?

I think I am on the right track to lure the young into the concerts.
My music has very much personal in it, which I could never explain with words.
Again, I would also like to take people to another world.
This does not mean into mine, but each one into his own.

This is where I try to transmit.

Tell us about your creative process. Do you have your favourite piece (written by you) How did you start working on it?

Oh ... I do not like this question :)
Because I just never know how to answer them.

I often, just play my hands and look where they are me.
Then it always depends on how I feel.

But what I like very much, often I get news and the people tell me their story, how my music helped them or what they had condemned.

And that I love very much that inspires me the most :)

So write me your story! ;)

We, Moving Classics TV, love the combination of classical music with different disciplines: music and painting, music and cinematography, music and digital art, music and poetry. What do you think about these combinations?

Yes, of course
But for me is music and stories, warmth, seduction etc.

Can you give some advice for young people who want to discover classical music for themselves?

Yes, let you be seduced and go into your world.
At the moment it is so hectic times, so it is all the more important if you can let yourself go to collect yourself again.

Now it is a common practice in the media to talk that the classical music is getting into the consumption business, do you agree? We are speaking about the supply and demand rules and how to sell your “product” in your case your compositions. How do you see it?

Today, social media are simply a duty.

Do you have expectations what regards your listeners, your audience?

Expectations? No not at all.
I just hope the people like to listen to me and I can tell my story.

What projects are coming up? Do you experiment in your projects?

Currently, I am working on a new album the end year will be.
In addition the notes and tutorials come.
Since I can not read any music and I have the piano playing itself, it is all the more important for me to show the people how to play my songs.

Then I plan for next year a tour with the new album.
