Communicate with music

For me music is – above all – a language: an authentic language that reaches everyone all over the world and invites a dialogue between different cultures and nationalities, between musicians and their audiences, between the artists themselves, as well as between feelings and intellect and even between the past and the future.

The internet seems to be the perfect communication-medium to support this dialogue. In this sense my homepage wishes to be a platform for the exchange and the dialogue between you and me, dear visitor!

„The implementation of men happens through dialogue: The ability to speak and to listen, to answer, but also to allow the words (or musical notes!) to touch oneself. In other words, dialogue is willingness to cooperate.“
(August Heinrich Henckel von Donnersmarck)
