"I play different genres of music such as classical, rock, pop and progressive metal, with great passion. In doing so, I clearly differentiate the individual music styles from each other through different styles. The music is an expression of feelings and thoughts. For every genre I concentrate on the essential stylistic devices: In the classics this is the traditional violin technique, the beauty of the sound as well as the depth of thoughts and feelings. In rock and pop it is the feeling of the rhythmic groove. Metal music is tension as well as fifths and fourths.”
