Storytelling trough symphonic poems and operas is what made Andraž fall in love with orchestral music, which he so much adores. But the stories are not only limited to program music that has texts or specific titles which refer to the composition, meaning can be found in every piece of music, be it orchestral or chamber music. The meaning in music is what Andraž strives to share with listeners, especially when it comes to modern repertoire. As of 2021 Andraž is the new solo bass clarinetist of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Between 2019 and 2021 Andraž has held an academy position with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. He has played under the baton of conductors such as John Williams, Christian Thielemann, Zubin Mehta, Daniel Harding, Christoph von Dohnanyi, Christoph Eschenbach, Semyon Bychkov among others. ​ In 2018 Andraž performed as a soloist with the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock at Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival and in 2022 with the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra.
