The orchestral pieces are composed for young musicians. The last movement Prelude 4 (Mondfeder) was commissioned by the Association of Friends and Supporters of the Music School Dormagen e.V. The preludes are meant to be pictures for the ear – sceneries in a cosmic environment. Titles like Mare Undarum or Cosmic Bowl already point that out. As a didactic work, the performance is intended only for youth orchestras.

for Guitar and Piano (1989) – T. Bocklenberg

This piece lives on the steady flow of a rhythmic and melodic pattern, which is reminiscent of the South American Milonga. Guitar and piano are merged closely. The image shows the beginning of the main section with its typical rhythmic structure in the piano. You can here this passage at the beginning of the audio sample.
