Cherry Blossom Dance
Original: Composition for symphonic orchestra
Cherry Blossom Dance came to life during the work on "Kheer Tal" - it was supposed to be an actual part of it.
I came to the realization that it would be much better suited as a standalone piece for orchestra due to its colorful, clownish and witty nature.
Cherry Blossom Dance officially premiered in June 2019.

Of Wind and Water
Original: Suite for Flute, Clarinet, Harp and string orchestra

Arranger/Orchestrator: Rap - Band & symphonic orchestra
One of Germany's most successful rappers, Kontra K, together on stage with a symphonic orchestra.
The premiere in the Kurhaus Baden-Baden Benazetsaal took the Crossover concept to its limits. The very static beats of Kontra K's music melting with the organic body the orchestra offers.

We're Going on an Adventure
Original: Suite for symphonic orchestra.
"We're Going on an Adventure", a 10 part suite that delves into the emotions one could encounter throughout a journey. The title
of each parts acts as a guide for the listener to make up their as they listen to the music. The suite encapsulates by melody, color and orchestration, the
techniques from todays film music.

Arranger/Orchestrator: Ethno Jazz & symphonic orchestra
"Hiwar Symphony" is Masaa, German Ethno Jazz quartet, together with a symphonic orchestra in a unique and heartfelt musical experience. Under guidance of Bernd Ruf this project arose and managed to take a special place in my heart. Masaas music is pure, genuine and intimate, the same feelings are portrayed in the Symphony.
