Welcome to my website!


I have come to a period in my life, in which music remains the most important thing in life while giving as many performances as possible is no longer a priority. But of course, I still love new challenges, in particular with the wonderful orchestra in Palma de Mallorca, and for example, in April this year, I will conduct them in a Bruckner Symphony for the first time in my life.

My “other” passion in life has lead me already two years ago to open a fine dining restaurant in Vienna, SHIKI, which has now reached the informal status of the “best Japanese restaurant in Austria”, and I am working hard all the time to still motivate my team to improve further.

In January this year, I undertook a short trip for the Swiss Universal Magazine of Swiss Airlines with the chefs of my Viennese restaurant, which resulted in a list of my culinary recommendations in Tokyo, which can be seen on their App: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.videobooks.swissuniverse&;hl=de

Looking forward to serving you as a musician or gastronome, in both worlds I feel fortunate to dedicate my time to “perfectionizing” the art of giving pleasure to human beings.

Yours ever, Joji
