at the beginning of the new year 2023 I would like to welcome you to my website! First of all, I would like to draw your attention to some of my concerts in the near future. You will also find information about my biography, my CD and SACD recordings and other publications here.
My SACD of Anton Bruckner's early symphonic works (overture in G minor WAB 98, the orchestral pieces WAB 96 and 97 and the symphony in F minor WAB 99), which was released by MDG (https://mdg.de) in autumn 2020, will now be supplemented by the Book publication of Anton Bruckner's path to becoming a symphonist. This book will be published in April 2023 by the Verlag Peter Ewers (https://vpe-web.de) and subscriptions have already been announced there.
In the 'Releases' category under 'Music' you will also find some recordings (e.g. the early organ cycles by Olivier Messiaen or the complete organ works by Johannes Brahms, which I can offer as vinyl records in LP format.
In this section you can see my own editions of organ music. These include my organ transcriptions of Anton Bruckner's early symphonic works: the four orchestral pieces and the overture in G minor in one volume, as well as the symphonies in F minor (1863), C minor No. 1 (1865/66) and D minor ( 1869) each in two volumes.
You will also find previously unpublished organ works by Franz Lachner and Samuel Barber, as well as my organ version of George Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue'. You can also find all the works mentioned as CD recordings under 'Releases'. I would like to draw particular attention to the SACD Variations on America, which was created on the large Walcker-Skinner organ in the Methuen Memorial Hall (www.mmmh.org).
Here you will find further publications, individual articles from magazines and encyclopedias (Handbuch der Organmusik, Lexikon der Organmusik and MGG) on specific musical topics as well as printed brochures about concert projects ('Messiaen-Days-Coesfeld' in the presence of the composer Olivier Messiaen in 1980 , 'Rheinberger-Musikfest 2005') or about the pianist Prof. Hans-Martin Theopold, my former teacher at the Hochschule für Musik Detmold.
Have fun reading, browsing or listening!
