The Beginnings

At the beginning of my career as a polymathic artist, it was my grandfather's virtuoso organ playing that laid the foundation. With childlike devotion and concentrated attention, I spent many hours at his side on the church pew while he accompanied the liturgical masses with his organ. This early fascination with music led to an unshakeable decision to become an artist myself, which marked the start of my career with the renowned Wiener Sängerknaben .

I quickly became a celebrated soloist at this venerable institution and had the extraordinary privilege of studying under the aegis of the renowned Ferdinand Grossmann. As a soprano soloist, I was able to set musical milestones in the now legendary recordings of Wiener Sängerknaben under the direction of Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus for the Bach cantata edition, as well as in the role of the "Shepherd" in "Tannhäuser" under Sir Georg Solti with the Vienna Philharmonic. No less impressive was my solo of Franz Schubert's "Heidenröslein" in front of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II during the successful tour of England of Wiener Sängerknaben.

Moreover, the Sunday performances with the Vienna Hofmusikkapelle in the magnificent Vienna Hofburg were among the outstanding events in the history of Wiener Sängerknaben, in which we acted as musical cultural ambassadors of the Republic of Austria.
