With his passionate programs focusing on Classical, Contemporary, Tango and Oriental music Oliver looks back on a long series of exciting projects with which he has delighted audiences the world over.

The CD "Didar - Live in Berlin" featuring Majid Derakhshani (Composition, Tar, Voice), Thea Nielsen (Flute) and Amir Abbas Zare (Daf) and Oliver on guitar is one of his latest projects and yet another exciting venture discovering new horizons.
