Franz plays the panflute since 1978. He is mainly self-taught without using a teacher. After just 18 months of most intense self-teaching, he dared to perform to the public in a Panflute-Organ Concert. Since the beginning he played many of his own compositions, which were initially strongly oriented to Romanian Folk Music. Gradually he abandoned this inclination. He composed a first piece for flute and strings. The debut of this concert (two sets) took place in 1983. It was performed by his school orchestra and directed by Brenton Langbein. A series of compositions for this ensemble were next.


Finally, in 1990 he recorded a CD that summarized this artistic work. Moreover, he adopted more existing works and transcribed them into panflute scores. This animated many modern composers to write some new pieces for panflute.
