He was touring all over Europe, in North Amerika and the Near East. He created many jazz compositions, a string quartet, music for film and 17 CD productions as a Leader.

Moessingers musical personality is based on two important factors. First of all he is an improvising artist, who creates the beauty of his music, while playing the ideas, which develop from the miracle of the moment. And he creates these ideas with full expression and clearness.

At the same time he is fascinated by the formal architecture and composed structure in melodies and songs. The improvisers freedom and the from of music and melody are the important positions for Johannes Moessinger, which work together constantly and create his music between the elements control and creativ chaos.
