Director for
musical broadcasting
since 2001

true to the orchestra score

Those two terms describe the core of my work philosophy, in which I was allowed to broadcast a variety of different musical stage events from Gregorian chant to classical music to punk. From recital to symphony to grand opera. Always with the focus: The art takes place on the stage – how can we most-fittingly convey it to the audience’s home screen?
The terms „minimal-invasive“ and „true to the orchestra score“ in detail.
