Well, there are plenty of questions I am asked several times. Here I try to answer those ones.
Da ich gern viele Menschen erreichen möchte, ist die Seite (bisher) in Englisch verfasst. Mit der Zeit werde ich mich jedoch bemühen, auch deutsche Inhalte bereitzustellen.
Unfortunately I cannot answer this question. So there is no fix schedule or tour plan. When I am in Germany, I often play in Constance, Dresden or Berlin or the cities between them. Also I am spontaneous and go by the local weather when I look for my next destination.
See question above. ;-) It seems likely that I stay at one destination for several days, if the weather is good and the people want me to stay. So feel free to tell me about your wishes.
I do my best to do so! Follow my posts on FB or Twitter to stay updated about my actual tour route.
Yep you can. Please use my suggestions box
Well, no.. but if you think your event fits my philosophy, please contact my management.
Mission accomplished ;-)
Well, in the historical city of Dresden many street musicians perform. Therefore the rule of changing the location after 30 minutes of play was declared by the local authorities. To meet the requirements with my piano I've looked for a stylish way to do so. The coach-solution is my answer to that problem. =)
The coach (and of course the horses) have got their home near the town of Dresden. It is just impracticable to go on tour with them.
I'm sorry, no I don't.
My piano is a self-made instrument. In my spare time I always try to work on and improve it. The sound is digitally corrected so it cannot be detuned. Unfortunately the grand is not weatherproof. Therefore damages are very likely in rain. I do not use any canopies, because this is not my intention.
I tried out different volume settings in different locations. The environment responds positive when a certain volume level is reached.
I use a special car trailer with a simple cable winch system. So I don't need any help to move the piano.
The piano sleeps in its trailer and I in a hotel or at a friends' couch
It's just comfortable =)
Because, it's my intention only to play when the weather is fine.
Klavierkunst emphasizes special landscapes and architectures with own compositions.
I don't write down any scores. So if I figure out something new, during my performance, I am able to record it immediately. Also I am able to listen to previous compositions to get them back in my mind.
Not now. Maybe in the future ;)
It's an hommage to grammophone records and for environmental reasons.
There are some heating elements built in the piano. With the help of these I am able to play down to -10 degrees Celsius.
Klavierkunst means piano art. Art is the protagonist, surrounding us - the architecture, the landscape. This is the medium of the sounds and acoustics. The grand piano is just the tool for it. Therefore piano art.
Because with fixed play dates and locations the freedom and possibility of longer term and spontaneous decisions repeals. Right now travelling is more important for me than planning.
I just don't have the time to do all this administrative stuff while being on tour. I try my best to answer all messages as soon as possible. If you've got an offical request, please contact my management.
