// I’m happy to announce that I’ll be the artistic director of PODIUm festival Mödling starting this upcoming season. Together with the fabulous Beatrix Baumgartner as the new business manager we are looking forward to creating the new, exciting and certainly unusual concerts for which the festival has earned recognition over the years.
Coming out of the PODIUM network, we co-founded this project 7 years ago together with Andreas Vierziger, from whom we are gratefully taking over the project.
Under his fabulous artistic direction the festival most recently received the most prestigious cultural prize from the region of Niederösterreich. //
See you there in September!
// A beautiful capture of what I consider one of the highlights of my recent musical endeavours - a premiere of Gia Kancheli’s “Nina Nana per Anna” together with Mihkail Kopelman, Regi Papa, Julian Milkis and Alexander Rudin. It was an experience of making music on the edge of sound, emotions and the realms of the senses - especially in the light of the incomparable beauty of “Rancho la Puerta” in Tecate, Mexico. //
// A live recording of our performance of Martinu’s “Rhapsody Concerto” in Odessa, with Vladimir Fanshil and the Odessa Philharmonic. It was special for us both to perform in the city of our parents and enjoy making music with the artists of this unique city. //
