1. A slideshow that shows me since the 1980s, with lots of autoportraits, and initially also portraits of me taken by my ex-wife. The background music is my own, composed and performed by myself.

  2. Lausanne is a wonderful old town, stately, and proud, a place where you have a modern town embedded in a landscape that really breathes, where the air is pristine and pure, and where the people are highly civilized, polite and respectful. It's a place you will never forget when you lived here, like myself, for eight years. I was there for my doctoral thesis in international law at the University of Geneva, but I could not afford an apartment in Geneva, but well in a suburb of Lausanne. The photos were all taken with a Minolta 300, using Ilford film and developed by an expert photo shop in the town.

  4. I lived from 2002 to 2004 in the Provence and it was an unforgettable experience. The rich nature, the wonderful Mistral, a cold wind, the huge trees, the perfumed air, and the wonderful food and wines will always haunt me. It's a blessed region not only of France but of the entire world.

    The present collection are 12 Miniature Etudes for Piano, which I composed in the traditional manner. I had to practice them quite a bit for playing them in the speed I think is the right one.

    And one Sunday morning, while practicing these pieces, I met the Mayor of the little town in the Church—which was just around the old manor—and he greeted me with these words:
    —My police was standing in front of your window a few days ago and they listened to your play. They call you 'The Pianist.' Welcome in our town!

    That was a wonderful reception that I will never forget.
