classical guitar at the conservatories of Lucerne, Basel, and Zurich
as well as at master-classes with Konrad Ragossnig, Oscar Ghiglia,
Alvaro Pierri and Pepe Romero. He trained as a soloist with Oscar
Ghiglia at the Basel Academy of Music. His encounter with Sergiu
Celibidache, with whom he studied Phenomenology of Music and

He is an internationally active guitar soloist; he regularly
performs with different chamber-orchestra ensembles and at

endeavours to expand the tonal and dynamic range of today's concert
guitar and bring it to the attention of a larger audience.

Oxford University UK as Musician in Residence.
