Alma Mahler Kammerorchester
Alma Mahler Kammerorchester is a chamber orchestra founded on the beliefs of friendship, diversity and a never-ending curiosity.Its musicians are young professionals from all over Europe including Austria, Czechia, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Some of them already hold positions in prestigious European orchestras.
Enriching their experience as orchestral musicians, the members of the Alma Mahler Kammerorchester aim to create an international ensemble that can shift seamlessly from a chamber group into a chamber orchestra.
The artistic vision of the Alma Mahler Kammerorchester lies in the eagerness to deconstruct and rediscover the great symphonic repertoire of the 19th and 20th centuries, as well as the wish to perform original chamber and orchestral works freed from any style or period.
Trio Sen Tegmento
I founded the trio Sen Tegmento in 2016 with the Slovak pianist Zuzana Biščáková and Japanese soprano Nao Higano. At the time we had already been playing together for a few years, but I wanted to continue this very engaging collaboration even after leaving Slovakia. The name comes from esperanto and means "without roof". I chose this name because it represents our freedom both in musical expression and in life. We are focusing mostly on contemporary music and are actively commissioning composers to write new pieces for us.
We have collaborated extensively and in particular with a Slovak composer Iris Szeghy, who rearranged some of her older works us. In July 2018 we have recorded a CD dedicated to her oeuvre for our instrumentation. I released on a Slovak label "Diskant" and you can order yours below.
