You make music!?

"The work must be reborn in every performance." [Gustav Mahler]

The Goldberg Variations for wind ensembles.
The Gran Partita for string orchestra.
A birthday serenade for family music

“My gift is to grasp the essence of music and to dress it in a new outfit, to create tailor
made arrangements for your ensemble – for chamber music quartets, wind orchestras,
choirs and all sorts of formations. I arrange, orchestrate and transcribe music for new
instrumentation." [Dietmar Rainer]

Offer

Straight to the point.

My portfolio includes music arrangements, adaptations, transcription and orchestration
for symphonic wind orchestras, wind ensembles, choirs and organs – and much more.
• Are you conducting an orchestra with an incomplete instrumentation?
I can rearrange selected pieces of work. Your musicians will be able to play my adaptation right away and the missing instrumentation won't be noticed.
• Does your music include instruments that are not available?
I will edit your piece in a way that the missing instruments won't be noticed.
• Are you leading an ensemble with an unusual instrumentation?
I can orchestrate pretty much every musical piece and adapt it to almost any instrumentation.
• You came across a work that wasn't orchestrated for contemporary orchestras?
I will brush up old scores and convert outdated music into a modern sound image.
