Simultaneous he studied Musicology at the University of Bonn. In 1964 he won a scholarship to continue his studies in Paris with the conductor Pierre Dervaux and the Pianist Annie D´Arco. He concluded this year with “Licence de Concert” and then went to masterclasses with Franco Ferrara in Venice and Igor Markevitch in Madrid.
After 30 years of experience in opera-houses as 1. conductor he specialized more and more in avant-garde music and -since 20 years- in music for silent films.
He resurrected some original scores by Saint-Saens, Mascagni, Hindemith, Meisel, Shostakovich and others. With his own compilations and instrumentations he tours in Germany and was invited to Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Ungarn, Mexico, Brasil, New-Zealand, Niederlande, Great Britain, France, and Castrop-Rauxel.
