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!
