In March 2017, he began „The Bach Project“in the Berlin Cathedral. For the first time, he will perform the organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach on the Great Sauer Organ. The series comprises 15 concerts in five years (2017 - 2021) and deliberately began on Bach’s birthday in the Reformation anniversary year and ends for the „Year of the Organ “ in December 2021. Most recently, his CD „Berlin“ (on the Dabringhaus & Grimm label), which brings together compositions by Berlin composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries - including several premiere recordings - was released in 2020.
