Art brought me to Vienna for the first time, twenty years ago. I am a painter and a set designer for opera and it was the perfect way to discover not only Vienna's rich cultural and artistic past aswell as the splendours of baroque architecture, but also it's soul, it's fantastic classical, romantic or contemporary music production, .

Let me guide you through Vienna's history of music, visting places where fameous composers lived, worked or which they frequented.

Or, if you prefer, lets discover together, off the beaten tracks, the hidden beauties of the historical center, with its 2000 years of history.

Or, the Viennese Secession, with its capital role in the evolution of Art and Architecture towards Modernism. And of course, if you wish, lets plan together a “à-la-carte tour”.

L'Art m'a amené à Vienne pour la première fois il y a vingt ans. Etant peintre et scénographe dans le domaine de l'opéra, c'était le moyen idéal de découvrir Vienne non seulement par la richesse de son passé culturel et artistique, le foisonnement de son architecture baroque, mais également son âme, par la très gande qualité de sa production musicale, qu'elle soit classique, romantique ou contemporaine.

Laissez-moi vous guider à travers l'histoire de la musique de Vienne, en parcourant les lieux historiques dans lesquels de célèbres compositeurs ont oeuvré ou habité ou encore qu'ils ont fréquentés.

Ou, si vous le préférez, découvrons ensemble et hors des sentiers battus, les beautés cachées du centre historique marqué par plus de 2000 ans d'histoire.

Ou encore, la Sécession Viennoise, avec so rôle capital dans l'évolution de L'Art et de l'architecture vers le Modernisme.

Et bien-sûr, si vous le désirez, planifions ensemble une visite à la carte.

Die Kunst brachte mich nach Wien vor zwanzig Jahren. Ich bin Maler, Buehnen- und

Kostuembildner im Opernbereich und es war der ideale Weg, nicht nur Wiens kuenstlerischer und

historischer Reichtum, seine grandiosen Barock Architekturen zu entdecken, sondern auch seine

Seele zu erforschen, durch seine klassische, romantische oder zeitgenoessische Musik. Lassen Sie Sich durch Wiens Geschichte auf den Spuren grosser Komponisten und Musikern fuehren, die Plaetze wo sie gewohnt, gearbeitet und welche sie frequentiert haben entdecken. Oder spazieren wir abseits der Touristen Stroemen durch romantische Gassen und Hoefe und versuchen wir so einen Einblick in 2000 Jahre Wiener Geschichte zu kriegen.

Oder, warum nicht, die wesentliche Rolle der Sezession in der Entwicklung von Kunst und Architektur zum Modernismus zu erforschen.

Und, wenn Sie es wuenschen, planen wir zusammen eine “à-la-carte” Tour.
