At the age of 22, he was one of the awardees at the international flute contest in Markneukirchen. He started to play as a principal flutist in the symphony orchestra in St. Gallen, Switzerland, and since 1979 he has been in the same position in the Symphony Orchestra in Bern. For two years he played in the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich. For a long time he was a solo flutist of the Festival Orchestra of Lucerne. He played with conductors like Wolfgang Sawallisch, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Charles Dutoit and Kurt Sanderling.
