Most of my compositions are written for smaller ensembles, but there is also music for orchestra or electronic music. For some years now, I have been applying myself to compositions for lute, theorbo and guitar very intensively, including music for tuition.
Among the plucking instruments, especially the lute has fascinating tonal properties. Considering the multifaceted music scene today, there is a chance for composers and players to break away from the cliché of a merely historical instrument. It would pave the way for contemporary lute music and new developments in lute making.
As a player of Lute, Theorbo, Guitar and Baroque Guitar, continuo an solo music of renaissance and baroque belong to the repertory, as well as compositions of my own.
