Beautiful Whistling by...
- Musician Extraordinaire...
Actor Paul Newman
and enjoyed Johannes' music...
Listen to the emotionally stimulating sound of Johannes

Johannes' unique abilities and musical
interpretations are purely intuitive; i.e. based on emotional perceptions, rather than technicalities or robotics.
In 1988, Johannes discovered and developed his talent of whistling to classical and/or popular music.
He also discovered, but not yet developed (for reasons of priority), his latent potential as a composer. His repertoire comprises
about twenty-eight hours, stretching from classical composers, such as tunes from Suppe, Rossini, Mozart, Brahms and Schuhmann
to contemporary musical works and interpretations by musicians, such as Liberace, Cleyderman, Wunderlich, Bota, Piacentino
Johannes' repertoire even includes traditional ethnic music, such as Italian, Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, Russian
gypsy tunes and may be extended to suit your specific requirements.
