In opera CD productions he can be heard as Varo in Gluck’s „Ezio“ and in the title role of the opera „Demofoonte“ by J. Schuster, among others.

He is also passionate about the art song, to which he devotes himself above all with the lied accompanist Dominikus Burghardt. He premiered songs by Aribert Reimann and Wolfgang Rihm at the Kissinger Sommer. There, too, he sang the world premiere of the Rilke cycle “Dir zur Feier” by Manfred Trojahn. In programmes combining song and reading, he has worked with well-known actresses such as Eva Mattes or Corinna Kirchhoff or the radio announcer Eckhard Leue, among others.

He passed his Konzertexamen with distinction. He is a prize winner of the 11th International Bach Competition in Leipzig and a scholarship holder of the Richard Wagner Association in Cologne and the German Schubert Society, the latter enabled him to take lessons in art song interpretation with Norman Shetler.
