One of my favorite challenges is the improvisational potential inherent in baroque music and in classical cadences. Another reason I like early music is that historical tuning makes the ensemble's sound particularly rich in overtones. For instance, playing a feather-light wooden flute often feels like I am singing myself.
As an early musician, I mostly work in the genre of chamber music, but I also perform regularly as a soloist. I have also enjoyed working with larger ensembles such as Capella Savaria, Concerto Armonico, and Aura Musicale. My period instruments - a baroque G. A. Rottemburg copy and a classical keyless flute - were made by Rudolf Tutz of Innsbruck in 1997 and 2008, respectively.
