I look forward to your contributions - the first have already arrived!


Many thanks to my friend António Carrilho from Lisboa for the wonderful premieres of "Ukuvalelisa, 10 Miniatures for Recorder Solo" in Hervey Bay on February 15 and of Cádiz (for recorder and piano) on February 19 in the Sydney. The scores to both pieces are just published, you can order them on this site now. Also just published: UXOLO for recorder orchestra. All other premieres are canceled for now due to the current situation. Let's hope we all get healthy through this difficult time!

Thanks to the drive and organization skills of Axel Bodendieck I will be able to give at least ONE recorder workshop in 2020! It will take place on November 14 in Hamburg, I will teach two new works that have never been played before plus some classics, and we will be able to go in harmony with all covid regulations. Fee is 30€, registration deadline November 5. Hope to see you there! Please contact:

Just published: TELL THEM I'VE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE in the version for recorder and piano! A video of the second movement you can find here: The fourth (!) edition of Umlanjana is coming from the printing press today. And since four weeks the version of Cádiz for recorder and piano is also available, here you see the second movement from the premiere in Sydney: Best selling at the moment, though, is my first work for recorder solo UKUVALELISA. Here is a video with António Carrilho:
