As a musician and as a composer Michael Publig stands for musical diversity and pursues an open musical path “among all worlds”. His music is a symbiosis of elements from jazz, contemporary (serious) music and Latin American.

It is his special concern to give classical performers an understanding of the jazz and Latin American elements.
