Music – Classical Music
Pathik received his first piano lessons at the age of six. Aged fifteen, he became a private student of Prof. Eliza Hansen in Hamburg, who had studied with Artur Schnabel and Edwin Fischer, among others; the following year, he enrolled for a master’s degree under her professorship at the local music university. Some years later, he changed to the Brazilian pianist Prof. Yara Bernette, a student of Claudio Arrau. After finishing his classical piano studies with excursions into new music, a seven year long hiatus from classical music saw him venture into rock, meditative music and original compositions, among others with the Berlin band »Inside Out«.
Through his encounter with the Indian mystic and master Osho, he was increasingly drawn to meditation as a way of life – the name Pathik means »inner journey«. Consequently rediscovering the piano for himself, he has since been working on the classical repertoire as a means of striving for the highest possible tonal expression of what this music awakens in him in terms of feelings and ideas.
Since 1996, Pathik has been performing piano recitals and chamber music with the Munich »Blütenring Ensemble« both in and around Munich, Hamburg, Elmau, Berlin, Hanover, Leipzig and Korea, where he has performed as a soloist with the Korean Symphony Orchestra (2006, Daejeong) and the Korean Chamber Orchestra (2011 and 2019, Seoul Arts Center).
