Upright Vol I
I've recently moved to a new home in Harheim, Frankfurt am Main. It's a lovely old village, close to the spa town of Bad Vilbel and the river Main. Best of all is that I've been able to finally set up a piano studio where I can compose, record music, and teach piano lessons
I'm really excited to announce my new project: Upright is a carefully curated selection of sheet music that brings together the best contemporary music for solo piano.
It features wonderful music from 12 contemporary composers from around the world, including an Emmy-award winner.
It's free to download, but if you do pay for it, then all profits go to Music for Relief, a charity that provides immediate relief in the wake of humanitarian crises and natural disasters around the world.

a new improv (inspired by Michael Price)
A new improvisation, inspired by From the Bertold Brecht poem, 'Vom Schwimmen in Seen und Flüssen'
Composer Michael Price (him of BBC's Sherlock fame) released an album of improvisations made over the course of a month earlier this year on 1631recordings. It's called Diary and it's wonderful. This improvisation is based on the opening track, 'To Begin'.
