ARIES POINT

This record was just released on Outhere Music. We recorded it two years ago in the lovely Kammermusiksaal at Deutschlandfunk Cologne with Bastian Stein on trumpet, Ronny Graupe on guitar, me on doublass and the Hathor Conosort (three piece viola da gamba ensemble). Also I composed two pieces „Lumen“ and „Jacob“; really enjoy listening back.
