As a classically trained pianist, my deepest passion and dedication lie in the realm of classical music. The works of great masters such as Bach, Mozart, and Chopin are for me more than just notes on the sheet; they are stories, impressions, and expressions of profound emotions and artistic finesse.
However, my music extends far beyond the boundaries of classical music. In my repertoire, you will find a rich selection that blends the timeless elegance of classical music with the vibrant energy of other genres. From melancholic or energetically swinging jazz standards to captivating pop ballads, and from the powerful chords of rock to the captivating melodies of film music—each piece is an expression of my versatile love for music.
In my performances, you can feel the bridge between tradition and modernity when classical mastery meets the freedom of improvisation. It is the connection of the past and the present that makes my playing unique and opens up a new perspective on the piano.
