    How I found Ibiza…
    After a concert performance in Germany a lady who partly lives in Ibiza come up to me asking me to come to Ibiza to play a concert, arranged by her in the Palacio de Congresos. While I first thought she is kidding, as I associated Ibiza more to the DJ scene and wild parties and not to an audience interested in classical music, I performed a concert in Ibiza half a year later in front of a full hall of enthusiastic people. I totally fell in love with Ibiza Since then I came back every year, to perform but also for holidays. It was only logical to create my own music festival on the island, and 2018 the first successful edition of IBIZA CONCERTS took place.

    Some of its myriad facets…
    People on Ibiza seem to have one thing in common: the talent to enjoy life to the fullest, everybody in his or her own way. And it´s great to BE surrounded by happy people like this.

    A luxury on the island…
    For me the greatest form of luxury is freedom. I always have the impression everybody on the island can be whoever he wants and create whatever he or she feels like. People are free minded and have a more open spirit here than elsewhere.

    My favourite moment…
    I love spring on the island. The north of the island is wilder than the other parts, it´s wonderful being there.

    A memory when I’m far away…
    The sunsets are all memorable, the wind in my face when being on a boat around the island, the breathtaking colors of the sea, the great food.

    The magic of Ibiza…
    The light is really special during all seasons, thats magic. But there seems to be also a magical energy coming from this island, that hits me every time from the moment I land.It gives me positive vibs and an inner tranquility.

    What I tell my friends…
    I certainly tell them to come to this years edition of the IBIZA CONCERTS festival, taking place August 30-September 1. The inner court of the Claustro in Dalt Vila, where the concerts take place is a unique spot: it´s open air, you are sitting under the stars while listening to world class musicians.
