Mike Foerstner – in 1960 born – already had, before he could read and write, intensive contact with the predominantly classical music. This also does not surprise, because his father, during young years dance musicians, as well as his mother studied classical music and did both times of her life the music her food point. Names like Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Grieg and other dimensions of the classical music were familiar to him therefore already in the childhood more than only.
At the age of 5 years he received at first from his father lessons in the piano, then tried out at the age of 8 years also the play on the accordion. For this he received the lessons from his mother.
Nevertheless, then the music love led him to a quite differently disposed instrument, the clarinet. A several years' education in the music conservatoire joined. He mastered check with excellent results and the concerts taking place in this frame he looked as a welcome presentation of his achievements. Also he took part in musical competitions with big success. Of course chamber-musical engagements and the co-operation might not be absent with a classical education also in the symphony orchestra.
The music has never again let go him since this time. Today the studied economic expert deals beside the piano play with composition and the early classical impressions have remained unmistakeable. Anyhow have found meanwhile with him also other genre of the music a proper place. Music signifies for him life and the possibility to provide his feelings in special way for other people.
