Projects

Pianist

After completing his studies at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana, Sašo started to develop his musical style influenced by the many different bands he collaborated/is collaborating with (from 'chamber' to 'alternative music').

Composer/Arranger

As a composer, he created several compositions and has also made arrangements for different projects:

Performer

Saso Vollmaier’s most recent performance "Peau de tambour" with Viviane Gay is based and inspired by the poems of Henri Michaux (Nous deux encore 1945, Emportez-moi, Contre, Agir je viens, Clown, ...)

Teacher

Sašo is an experienced voice and piano teacher. He is interested in unwritten interaction between the singer/instrumentalist  and accompanist. His teaching includes the elements of Alfred Wolfsohn and Roy Hart voice methods, inspired by several Roy Hart teachers.
