The Beginnings

At the beginning of my career as Universalartist was the organ playing of my grandfather. As a child, I would sit next to him on the bench with great concentration when he accompanied masses with his organ. The childlike enthusiasm for music soon gave rise to the desire to become active myself, and so I began my career with the Vienna Boys' Choir.


There I quickly rose to soloist and had the good fortune to be trained by the famous Ferdinand Grossmann. I was able to experience musical highlights as a soprano soloist in the now legendary recordings of the Vienna Boys' Choir with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus, for the Bach Cantata Edition and as the "Shepherd" in "Tannhäuser" with Sir Georg Solti and the Vienna Philharmonic. Also impressive was my performance of Franz Schubert's "Heidenröslein" before Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II, as part of the Vienna Boys' Choir's major tour of England.


Above all, however, the Sunday concerts with the Vienna Hofmusikkapelle in the Vienna Hofburg were among the highlights of the Wiener Sängerknaben, as musical cultural ambassadors of the Republic of Austria.
