Born in Hartberg/Austria, I started my musical education at the age of six and finished it at the Universtiy of Music and Dramatics Arts in Graz/Austria (KUG). Today I am there assistant-professor at the institute for Composition, Theory of Music, History of Music and Conducting. Beside my music-pedagogical work, I am well known as conductor, choirmaster and composer (especially for sacred choir music). I have conducted well known national (Vienna Symphony, Capella Leopoldina, studio percussion..) as well as international orchestras (Capella Savaria, Savaria symphony orchestra, Bombay Chamber Orchestra..). With these ensembles and my four choirs I have performed many important works of J.S. Bach (Motets), G.F. Handel (Messiah), J. Haydn (The Creation, symphonies and masses), W.A. Mozart (Requiem and most of the masses), A. Bruckner (Mass in E-Minor), C. Orff (Carmina Burana) and also many performances of Austrian classical music of the 20th and 21th century (including some world premieres). I was invited as choirmaster and conductor to the most important music festivals of styria/Austria (styriarte, Steirischer Herbst) to perform world premieres. As a musicologist I am the editor of Franz Schuberts last opera "The Count of Gleichen" (completed by R. Duenser) und also have given lectures at universities outside Austria. In Novermber 2010 I made my PhD with a dissertation about the same opera.
