Chris started piano lessons at the age of seven, first with Jelena Hrubian, later with pianist and conductor Velimir Valtchev. Having enjoyed a strong classical formation with Bach, Chopin, Beethoven, etc..., he started showing great interest in Jazz. At the age of 18 he began to study jazz-piano at the University of Cologne, Germany. After graduating he toured as a sideman in several jazz combos through europe and has worked with Jimmy Woode, Charly Antolini, and Charly Mariano, just to name a few. His occupation as a studio musician and involvement in productions with many different music styles, led him to explore the creative work behind the performance. Thus began his work as a composer and producer.
One of his first successful projects was the Album "Coffee Lounge" that was initiated by fellow producer Tibor Lévay and released worldwide by Sony Music. Smaller independant productions were soon followed by collaborations with big labels and publishers such as Warner Chappell, BMG or Edel as well as compositions for TV and theatre productions. Therby he worked for international artists from throughout Europe, South Africa, and North America as composer, producer, pianist but also as an arranger for symphonic orchestras like the Filmorchestra Babelsberg / Berlin, or the Warsaw Symphony Orchestra. Today Chris' work can be heard on over 50 records and various TV, film, theater and variety show productions worldwide. His work comprises a wide range of styles, from jazz to classical music, from symphonic arrangements to electronic scores.
