Music Performance

(Private recording)

I am a lutenist and guitarist specialising in music from the Medieval to the Baroque period. I am approachable for performance requests.

My main activity is to record music related to my academic and art based research, but I also perform concerts. I have released solo albums, participated in films, held Master Classes and I have performed concerts in several European countries. You can see what instruments I use by visiting my Instrument collection.

I currently belong to the record label Ein Mangfaldig Kar. I am a Pyramid Historical Strings Artist and I play Lauri Niskanen instruments
