RADIO AND TV
I am a regular recording artist and have performed in numerous jingles. Over the years I have done various musical fillers for the South African broadcasting Corporation (TV) and have had numerous appearances in a number of music programmes on Radio.
COMPACT DISCS – ENSEMBLE
I feature as a session musician on the CDs of various South African artists, the latest being Jannie Du Toit Oesjaar 2018.
COMPACT DISCS – DUO 2000
I have recorded four compact discs with Amarillie Ackermann, as our Duo 2000 combination. I have arranged my part of every work on each CD, and I play the MIDI-Digital Accordion on all four. The first two were finalists in the SAMA awards, and the 2 nd. one was endorsed by SABC 2. I co-produced the 3 rd and 4 th CD and gained valuable experience in producing, over and above recording.
The CDs are:
- Song to the Evening Star (1997) – BMG Label
- Song for Anna (2001) – Value Music Label
- Encore (2004) – Value Music Label

- Echo of Paris (French Café Songs) (with Camille Favre-Bulle)
- The French boy Sings (French Café Songs) ( with Benjamin Falletto.
I played the accordion in the ensemble of arrangements made by Willem Vogel of Salon Music.
COMPACT DISCS – SOLO ACCORDION
I have also released a CD in 2009 where I play solo accordion, together with full orchestra. It is called Continental Favourites.
After a very long and successful association with Salon Music in Pretoria, I was invited to participate in the making of a DVD. It is called Celebration, and was launched to celebrate their 15 years of success. I am one of 19 SA artists who feature on this DVD, and who have all worked closely with Salon Music. My track is La Cumparsita.
