Newly published

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: https://youtu.be/blrYmSaaEro. 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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jqh8s51HvCU. Best selling at the moment, though, is my first work for recorder solo UKUVALELISA. Here is a video with António Carrilho: https://youtu.be/SzJzVtXPDgk.

Music Video Competition 2020!

I want to say my biggest thanks to all groups and individuals taking part in my first music video competition 2020. We received 39 contributions from all over the world, including musical, visual and performing artists from Hongkong, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia, Argentinia, Chile, Brazil, Italy, Spain, France, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Austria and Germany. So many different approaches, so much love and effort and fun and mastery. It will be very hard to chose the three winners , and I am glad I have Claire Walka and Ebba-Maria Künning-Zeijl at my side in the Jury. We will announce the winners on November 1 and then step by step publish the best videos. Again, I would like to say thank you to everyone involved. There will definitely be a second competition next year!

Double Saturday

On February 23 there will be two Premieres on one day: On the Recorder Day Itzehoe the commissioned work UXOLO for recorder orchestra will be played for the very first time. And nearly at the same time Liesbeth Schlumberger and Claudia Leibovitz will play the Premiere of my African Suite No. 27 TELL THEM I'VE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE for organ and recorder in the Église Protestante Unie de Étoile in Paris, just a few steps from the Arc de Triomphe. I am very happy, but I can only attend the Premiere in Paris! Besides I am proud to announce that the new CD of iFlautisti DOUCE DAMES JOLIE contains my African Suite No.15 WAKATI NJEMA in a wonderful recording. The marvelous CD is available in every CD-shop, on Spotify and soon also on this homepage!
