Biography

On the occasion of a student concert during my viola studies at the Academy of Music in Munich with Franz Beyer he surprised us, his students, with an own special "concert" playing on his viola d'amore. This was the proverbial love at first sight for me: Shortly I held my first own Viola d'amore in the hands, later called Donald Duck by my children. I studied with Franz Beyer not only viola but also viola d'amore. During the International Viola d'amore Congress in Stuttgart I spontaneously joined the Viola d'amore Society of America and got in contact with Dorothea Jappe. Later I attended a course by Dorothea to learn the art of Scordatura; there was the possibility for meeting with other viola d'amore friends. Over time I participated in several International Viola d'amore Congresses and grew into the Society gradually. In the autumn 2013 I founded together with 11 interested collegues the International Viola d'amore Society e.V.; they elected me as the first President of this Society.
