From 1998 to 2005 he played the viola with the Danel Quartet with performances at several national and international festivals.

Advanced chamber music course at the Orpheus Institute

The Orpheus Institute offers an advanced chamber music course every year: musicians with a rich chamber music experience provide invaluable tips and hints to young ensembles and prepare them for a concert at the Orpheus Institute. The masterclass provides 18 teaching hours for ensembles consisting of 2 to 7 national and international musicians.

The application form can be completed at any time of the year and will be evaluated by the guest professors who decide whether the ensemble can take part in the upcoming audition.
