From 1978 to 1983 he studied piano and harp with Hans Leygraf and Ruth Konhäuser in Hanover, finishing with the concert exam for both instruments. From 1983 to 1986 he studied at the Liszt Academy in Budapest with György Kurtàg and Zoltàn Kocsis. He won the first Swiss Young Musicians Competition as well as the Competition of German Music Academies; he also won several international prizes at competitions in Sydney, Monza and Leipzig. Since 1986 he has been a pianist with the Ensemble Modern, getting in contact with a variety of different tasks and performance styles; as a soloist he has performed at major festivals and collaborated with a large number of orchestras. As a chamber musician, he makes frequent appearances, such as with the Vermeer and the Carmina Quartets on a regular basis. His portrait CD, released by Ensemble Modern Medien in 2009, contains exclusively chamber music by the Greek composer Nikos Skalkottas.
