As tenor I studied with Nicolai Gedda and Hans-Josef-Kasper.Several masterclasses with Sylvia Geszty, William Cochran and Jason Stearns.Wide range of concert-repertory, including many songs, like all the song-cycles of Franz Schubert, which I' performed often in Europe. I've worked with orchestras like: Bamberger Symphoniker, Frankfurter Sinfoniker, Philharmonie Essen, Heilbronner Sinfonieorchester, Johann-Strauß-Orchester and many more.

In opera I've performed: Cavaradossi - Tosca, Canio - I Pagliacci, Luigi - Il Tabarro, Calaf - Turandot, Rodolfo - La Bohème, Siegmund - Die Walküre, Max - Der Freischütz, Melot - Tristan und Isolde.

I'm now focussed in building up my repertory in Wagner, including roles like Siegmund, Siegfried, Tristan, Tannhäuser, Parsifal, Loge and Erik. As well as roles like Kaiser and Bacchus of Richard Strauss. Moreover I'm deeply interested in roles like Paul - Die Tote Stadt, Peter Grimes, Laca - Jenufa.
