About me


I had my first oboe lesson at the age of 9 with Helmut Schmauder at the Music School of Tübingen. Later, I studied modern oboe with Professor Ingo Goritzki at the State University of Music and the Performing Arts Stuttgart and historical oboe with Alfredo Bernardini at the Sweelinck-Conservatorium in Amsterdam.

Early successes, including several Jugend musiziert prizes at the federal level and a first prize in the international Concertino Praga radio competition, soon permitted me to make a number of solo appearances both in Germany and abroad. In 2004, I was a prizewinner in Baroque oboe at the international Händelwettbewerb in Halle.

Since then, as a specialist in historical oboes, I have worked with many early music ensembles (including Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, Academia Montis Regalis, Cappella della Pietà dei Turchini, Hofkapelle München, I Barocchisti, La Banda, Lautten Compagney, La Scintilla and more). I have made numerous appearances at various international festivals and collaborated on several CD and radio recordings. In an ongoing collaboration, I have developed a particularly close relationship with the Milan-based Silete Venti! ensemble.

When playing with my own Baroque ensemble, Fairy Queen, I place great value on intimate musical dialogue, allowing the audience to experience Baroque music in all its expressive power.
