My musical biography

From conducting Bach&Electronics with pianist Francesco Tristano, the Youth Orchestra of Caracas together with the Sistema Europe Youth Orchestra at La Scala Milano to world- and Swiss premieres of orchestra pieces with the Basel Sinfonietta, Indie Rock singer Shara Nova and Belgian DJ Grazzhoppa, an own evening at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam with his ensemble bachSpace or a release with label ECM with Nik Bärtsch’s Mobile Extended, the Swiss conductor and violinist Etienne Abelin, musical collaborator of Claudio Abbado for many years, follows his passion to explore new ways in classical music and to inspire people. He’s a driving force in the build-up of an international indie classical network and currently lives in Basel, Switzerland.
