Dear all,
A newsletter containing some new recordings and infos about upcoming concerts!
The recording of my last orchestral piece “Ste.Fuji”, performed by Brussels Philharmonic (conductor: Peter Rundel) during the opening concert of Ars Musica 2016, is now available on Soundcloud.
Ensemble Platypus is playing on the 18th of January at the Konzerthaus in Vienna. It will be a very special evening, including world premieres by J.Serrano, V.Pelisch, G.Koumara, S.Song and pieces by R.Cendo, C.Szlavnics, H.Dufek and M.Blake.
